Real Wireless Leads SME Wave Into 5GIC
The University of Surrey’s 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) is opening its doors to small and medium-sized enterprises, and independent advisor Real Wireless has taken the opportunity to enter.
The centre will be looking to benefit from Real Wireless’ advice on regulatory, technical and business challenges, which form the company’s main research areas.
“Real Wireless joins the first wave of SME members of the 5GIC”
By becoming a member, it joins the likes of Huawei, EE and Samsung in an impressive list of collaborators. Professor Rahim Tafazolli, head of 5GIC, indicated that it will certainly will not be the last to sign up.
‘With their understanding of both the business and technical challenges of wireless, Real Wireless joins the first wave of SME members of the 5GIC’, he said. ‘Real Wireless’ independent expertise is an excellent addition to the 5GIC and they join many of the biggest names in the industry in helping to shape the future of 5G’.
“there are a number of different options currently on the table”
Director of Technology at Real Wireless, Professor Simon Saunders, was also on hand to express his excitement at joining the cause, and was keen to emphasise the work ahead to shape a network generation which is still in a very early phase.
‘While there’s still no agreement as to what 5G will look like, there are a number of different options currently on the table’, he said. ‘It’s important that each of these are carefully evaluated and tested’.
