5G Fieldlab 5Groningen
5Groningen is transforming North-Groningen into the ultimate testing ground for the future generation of mobile internet. 5G enables massive IoT (Internet-of-things), enhanced mobile broadband, ultra-reliable connections with low latency and is highly energy efficient. Entrepreneurs and non-profit organizations are joining forces with experts to test 5G applications. We are calling the pilot area the 5G Fieldlab. The applications we are testing concern developments in the care, energy, traffic & logistics, smart industry, agriculture and living environment sectors. They include applications to monitor diseases in crops as they grow, using sensors that measure information and send huge volumes of data via the high-speed 5G network for swift analysis. Or applications that allow a doctor in a hospital to make a long-distance diagnosis thanks to a fast connection conveying live images from an ambulance.
The first five pilot projects are launched in 2017, and today more than 15 projects are in place.
5Groningen is an initiative of Economic Board Groningen (EBG) and has been made possible thanks to the following partners: KPN, Vodafone, Huawei, Ericsson, SURF, State University Groningen, Hanze University of applied sciences, TNO and the Radiocommunications Agency.
