Ericsson and Vodafone joined forces into launching a 5G lab in Spain. The companies aim to continue efforts in boosting the evolution of the next-generation technology in the market.

Dubbed Vodafone 5G Lab, the new facility in Madrid will be open to developers and software companies for the development of use cases based on the latest network technology, designed for the consumer and the enterprise sectors. In its first year, the laboratory is expected to be used by more than 200 developers and enterprises, Ericsson explained in a statement.

Vodafone 5G Lab will be powered by Ericsson’s 5G Core offering, running independently of the existing 4G network in the premises, and will also house events, roadshows, workshops, and challenges designed to assist small companies and start-ups. The vendor said the hub will deliver a significant step for 5G in the region by solidifying the start-up ecosystem while ensuring the entire development chain has access to the best connectivity and devices.
