Using mobile communications to show, tell, produce & sell
Tay5G is a project born from the Tay Cities Deal and is funded by the Scottish and UK Governments. Tay5G aims to encourage and support engagement with 5G across sectors which reflect the regional strengths and priorities of the Tay Cities Region.
Tay5G are working with partners including The Scotland 5G Centre, Scottish Futures Trust, Councils, Universities and other stakeholders in the Tay Cities Region.
Tay5G’s goal is to create opportunities to trial 5G mobile communications with use cases for all kinds of sectors from entertainment to manufacturing, healthcare to construction, and fashion to automated transport. 5G is especially great for enabling advanced communications like virtual reality, automation and the Internet of Things that is a key tool for Smart Cities. By encouraging and supporting engagement with 5G, it’s easier to understand what it offers and so this helps to generate demand. In turn, telecom companies respond to that demand with faster roll-outs.More
