Each year, DigiLeaders100 introduce a category designed to demonstrate the amazing projects happening in a new area of digital transformation. This year, that category is 5G Innovation, defined as a project, programme or initiative that demonstrates the wide possibilities and opportunities presented by 5G across all sectors.
The Planning Tool uses ‘digital twin’ technology, artificial intelligence, and gaming visualisation to create a 3D copy of the project area in Kensington & Fairfield, Liverpool, incorporating local Ordnance Survey/Office National Stats data. This enables those planning a 5G network to work offline first to accurately plot line-of-sight for 5G receivers, assessing the environment and working around obstacles like trees or high buildings. This reduces the manual workload and resources required to plan a 5G network, significantly reducing costs and time required.
The winner of this award will be announced at a ceremony on 11th November, 2021.
