Singapore’s first live 5G facility, a collaboration between Ericsson, Singtel and Singapore Polytechnic, has opened. Aimed at developing the 5G ecosystem in the country and driving solutions for enterprises, the 5G Garage utilizes Singtel’s 3.5 GHz trial 5G network at Ayer Rajah.

The 5G Garage is the first partnership of its kind between enterprise, industry and higher education in Singapore. At Singapore Polytechnic’s Engineering Show 2019, the three parties signed a memorandum of understanding to build and operate a 5G facility where enterprises can develop and test 5G solutions, co-develop solutions relevant to industries such as transportation, logistics, healthcare and manufacturing, develop and deliver 5G wireless technology curriculum for the SP’s School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and develop capabilities of their workforce.

5G Garage is the latest project in Singtel and Ericsson’s 5G Centre of Excellence programme which focuses on upgrading of employees’ skills, technology demonstrations, live field trials and collaborations with educational institutions. Singtel and Ericsson made Singapore’s first 5G data call in November 2018 over their 5G pilot network at one-north.
