On Wednesday 29th June, the Liverpool 5G project team hosted a Use Case Demonstration event to demonstrate the various use cases being trialled on the Liverpool 5G network.
The event was hosted at Kensington Community Learning Centre in the heart of Kensington, Liverpool, which has been a base for the project team throughout the project and is home to a small cell, installed on the accessible roof.
The morning involved presentations from NHS Informatics, who discussed 5G WAN at NHS surgeries, and Telet Research, who presented the project’s use of 5G small cells, and demonstrations from Docobo and MySense, who showed their devices in use on the network, and concluded with a talk from Mersey Care on how they are utilising both Docobo and MySense to improve services for patients in the project area.
After lunch, attendees split into two groups, with one group being taken on a coach tour, stopping off at Rowan Garth Care Village and Phoenix Primary School to see the use cases in action, whilst the second group saw representatives from CuteCircuit, Porters Care, CGA Simulation and Liverpool City Council give demonstration on Hug Vest, Vitalerter, Chill Panda and the Education use case, respectively.
The day was an opportunity for attendees to understand the real-world and personal impacts of the use cases L5G are running, and put into context the far-reaching ways the private 5G network can be utilised. Attendees included representatives from DCMS, NHSX, the Department of Health and Social Care and Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group amongst others, and the demonstrations facilitated much discussion on learnings and the sharing of feedback and findings.
It was great to see the wide range of devices being used on the Liverpool 5G network, many thanks to all involved.
