5G Brighton

Enabling creative, media and tech businesses to develop experiences that benefit from this new and incredibly fast, low-latency, always-on wireless, mobile technology.

What is this about?

5G is wireless mobile technology that is incredibly fast, very stable and with very low latency; a technology that can unleash game-changing digital products and services. The 5G testbed programme gives regional businesses and organisations the chance to understand 5G and, potentially, to create new applications using its unique characteristics.

What has happened so far?

We launched the 5G Brighton testbed at the FuseBox in 2018, working in partnership with the Digital Catapult, Coast to Capital LEP and others. It has supported around 50 businesses through a 5G Technology Accelerator Programme, enabling them to test and explore the potential of 5G, and generate novel digital products, services and experiences. Learn about some of them here.

The testbed programme is currently being expanded to include Brighton Dome, providing opportunities for artists and performers to utilise 5G in their work.

What is happening now?

Wired Sussex, Brighton Dome and the Digital Catapult are working with national partners including Warner Music on delivering the world’s first 5G-powered music festival in March 2022.

5G Festival includes Alternative Stages. Alternative Stages is a range of activities to engage with regional music businesses (labels, artists, studios, venues, etc) and help them use 5G and other emerging technologies to develop new creative and commercial opportunities.

If you want to find out more, come along to one of our upcoming events.
