Chemring backs world's first 5G lab
The first ever 5G research facility in the world has received backing from Chemring Technology Solutions.A technology company has announced its backing of the University of Surrey's 5G Information Centre (5GIC).
Chemring Technology Solutions will hold a seminar with professor Rahim Tafazolli, Head of Research at (5GIC), on the subject of new apps that can take advantage of the innovative infrastructure.
While 5GIC has already received backing from some of the worlds largest mobile internet companies - including BT, EE and Huawei - Chemring will bring its expertise on smart watches to the project.
Peter Lockhart, Future Technology Manager at Chemring Technology Solutions, said: "We have led the way in mobile technology and standards development for more than 50 years and are excited about working with the 5GIC team."
While the exact definition of 5G has not been decided, it generally involves speeds similar to those on fibre optic broadband networks - normally around 80Mbps or above.
More developments from 5GIC are expected in the coming months.
