Thanks to the collaboration with the Agency for the Technological Modernization of Galicia (Amtega) and Retegal, atlanTTic already has a 5G laboratory open to entire digital ecosystem to test 5G technologies and offer possible solutions, services or equipment based on this advanced technology. The collaboration agreement signed this morning in Vigo between the Director of Amtega, Mar Pereira, the Rector of the University of Vigo, Manuel Reigosa, and the Managing Director of Retegal, Miguel Rodríguez aims to turn the laboratory into a research space and 5G collaboration.

5G Laboratory, a space for innovation

The School of Technical Engineering of Telecommunications of Vigo will house this 5G Laboratory that will have specific equipment for testing and simulation, at the same time that it will offer consulting to expert researchers in this field.

Felipe Gil, the Director of 5G Laboratory and member of the Information Technologies Group (GTI) of our centre, pointed out that this space will offer its installations and consulting to the service of research staff, companies and institutions that have an interest in the collaboration of projects and in the creation of synergies. In conclusion, one of the main objectives is to have a specialized 5G workspace open to the entire digital ecosystem of Galicia.

Strong commitment to 5G

The opening of the 5G Laboratory treats of another of the measures framed in the 5G Cooperation Node, an initiative promoted by Xunta through the Galicia 5G Plan, that works as a meeting point for the search of solutions and services based on this advanced technology. Under the 5G Cooperation Node program 17 5G pilots are working in Galicia in diverse fields of interest such as education, tourism, audiovisual and industry. This program seeks to position Galicia as a benchmark in the piloting of innovative solutions based in 5G.

The 5G Laboratory is further evidence of the intense work that the atlanTTic research staff is promoting and the advances they are achieving in the knowledge and development of 5G technologies.
