The aim of this competition is to develop new and novel applications and services that can be ready for 5G, in collaboration with South Korean partners. 

The successful UK applicant will be required to test solutions in a real-life environment (rather than a lab environment). The test environment will be provided by South Korean partners and the technical architecture provided is a hybrid 4G/5G network, but any solution should be designed for a 5G future.

Background

The aims of the 5G Testbed & Trails Programme include fostering the development of the UK’s 5G ecosystem to ensure that the UK is well placed to maximise the efficiency and productivity benefits of 5G by creating opportunities for UK business, including SMEs, to develop new 5G applications and services that they can market at home and overseas.

This collaboration should help to deliver against the Programme aims as follows:

  • Trade: Helping, through new industry partnerships between UK and Korean institutions, to further trade opportunities for UK companies in Korea. This includes digital services enabled by 5G
  • Cross-fertilisation of expertise: Allowing UK Industry and academia and Government to benefit from greater access to Korea technology, hardware, software and Intellectual property, including transition strategies from 4G to 5G
  • Lowering Costs: Lowering shared costs of 5G R&D in the UK by providing access to Korean funds and resources, sharing experiences of Korean and UK testbeds and trails
  • UK as a 5G Leader: Helping to promote the UK as a world leader in 5G by highlighting learning and successes and partnering with other work-leading 5G countries
