Event Details

Singtel - in partnership with Ericsson - became the first operator to launch 5G standalone in Singapore. In 2022, the companies announced surpassing the regulatory target of 95% standalone 5G nationwide coverage, accomplishing this feat three years ahead of the scheduled deadline set for 2025.

To facilitate the integration of applications into the new network, Singtel, Ericsson, and Singapore Polytechnic (SP) jointly launched the 5G and Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) Centre and the 5G Garage in 2019. This initiative aims to nurture and expand the B2B ecosystem by fostering collaboration and innovation on Singapore's inaugural 5G standalone trial network located on the SP campus. Over time, the Center and the Garage have evolved into a crucial hub to assist and enable enterprises to prototype and adopt 5G & AIoT innovation solutions. It provides Singapore's first test facility onto a live 5G network to enable development and testing of 5G solutions and hands-on training. The Centre and the Garage is dedicated to crafting and advancing 5G and AIoT solutions tailored for enterprises, primarily through proof-of-concept (POC) initiatives that pave the way for widespread adoption.

SwedCham is excited to extend an exclusive opportunity for our members to visit and witness live demonstrations of innovative 5G-powered use cases at the 5G Garage and the 5G and AIoT Centre, guided by Ericsson, Singtel, SP, and Axis Communications - a SwedCham member actively involved in testing new 5G solutions at the Garage.

The event provides an excellent opportunity for companies seeking avenues to integrate 5G and AIoT technologies into their digital transformation journey. It offers valuable insights into available partnership opportunities in Singapore, to better understand how to advance digital transformation initiatives.
