In 2021, techUK’s 5G Ecosystem Working Group explores the opportunities that 5G can provide, bringing together members and stakeholders to explore the effects 5G will have on Industry 4.0 (manufacturing and logistics), creative industries (including VR/AR, broadcasting and gaming) and the barriers and opportunities in the rural economy. The ecosystem is likely to expand rapidly, and we expect it to be highly interactive: business cases will emerge that show benefits from using multiple technologies.

Our current workstreams and projects: 

  • techUK's Private Networks paper
  • Ecosystem Management Model
  • Rural economy
  • Spectrum for utilities

The Working Group is Chaired by Alan Nunn, CGI. 

This meeting will review Working Group outputs in 2021, and look ahead to the next year's work plan, including rescoping the Working Group. 

  • Date: Tuesday 23 November 2021
  • Time: 14:00-16:00
  • Platform: MS Teams

The full agenda is available to techUK members only.
