Internal Use Cases
The Scotland 5G Centre have invested in ground-breaking 5G projects through our partners at the University of Glasgow and the University of Strathclyde. We are developing use cases which can be applied to different sectors in order to support Scotland’s economy.
Have a look at the use cases we have currently developed and find out more information about each of the projects too.
University of Strathclyde Use Cases
The key aim of this project is to bring new 5G technological solutions to rural communities and businesses throughout Scotland including Loch Lomond and the Orkney Islands, developing a new operational model introducing neutral hosting and private 5G networks. This improves connectivity for remote communities and businesses, contributing to a new 5G ecosystem across Scotland and driving new business opportunities and inward investment.
University of Glasgow Use Case
The key aim of this project is to bring new 5G technological solutions to urban communities and businesses throughout Scotland. They are currently developing a 5G-enabled Smart Campus offering sustainable, healthier and smart solutions to students, academics and the surrounding community. This is already attracting investment into the area, creating new jobs and will lead the way for future smart cities while contributing to Glasgow’s carbon neutral commitment by 2030.
Health & Social Care Innovation Challenge
Launched in April 2022, The Scotland 5G Centre’s inaugural innovation challenge outlined three core challenges within the Scottish health and care sector. Each of the winning companies took part in a 15-week development programme; with access to the 5G testbed in Dumfries and one-to-one technical expertise to support technical development.
