Announcing the 5G RuralFirst Orkney Test Locations – Part 1 | 5GRuralFirst

Latest update from the 5G RuralFirst Project Team

Since we formally kicked off the 5G RuralFirst project in June 2018 – after being named one of six winners in the UK Government Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport’s (DCMS) 5G Testbed and Trial competition – we have been focused on designing the architecture and detailed use cases for our 5G project.  Design and development is always a heavy investment in any R&D project, however we are now delighted to be at a stage where we can announce exactly what types of 5G use cases we will trial, and where in Orkney these will run.  Next week we will provide similar details on our 5G agritech use cases, which will run in Shropshire and Somerset.
