In this edition of Unlocking 5G in Wales, host Carwyn Jones is joined by Dan Hubert, CEO of AppyWay; Heba Bevan, CEO and Founder of UtterBerry; and Amy Taylor, Regeneration Opportunities Manager at Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council, to discuss how 5G is supporting the delivery of two innovative transport projects in Ebbw Vale.
5G looks set to have a huge impact on many business sectors, including the transport industry. The proliferation of electric vehicles, rapid advances in autonomous vehicles, the advent of the sharing economy and digital platforms, advances in big data and machine learning, and rapidly evolving business models, such as eCommerce and Mobility as a Service (MaaS), is creating profound change across the sector.
The development and rollout of 5G mobile broadband has the potential to not only support, but also accelerate, these revolutionary changes as digital transport solutions evolve, and new opportunities arrive.
5G Wales Unlocked is a consortium project led by Welsh Government and combines the knowledge and resources of some of the world’s leading technology, security, academic and mobility organisations, including Cisco, BT, Cardiff University, UtterBerry, Jam Creative Studios and AppyWay working in partnership with Monmouthshire County Council and Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council.
