Seminar: Smart Internet Lab – 5GUK Test Network

Speaker: Dr Hamid Falaki

Talk Title: Smart Internet Lab – 5GUK Test Network


This talk will provide an overview of the Smart Internet Lab's 5GUK Test Network facility and an update on its capabilities.

The 5GUK Test Network was conceptualised as a national asset in 2017 and in March 2018 delivered the world's first 5G public showcase, the 'Layered Realities' in collaboration with Watershed. This pioneering collaboration among artists, researchers and creatives explored the potential of 5G and offered the public the opportunity to participate in unique experiences like spectacular 3D-like projections, a virtual reality dance piece, and a guided tour onwhich you take a walk-through time among others.

Since then, under the leadership of Prof. Simeonidou, the 5GUK Test Network engineering team worked with Smart Internet Lab researchers to advanced its capabilities and delivered various innovative 5G Demonstrations. Through further research and development, we have built this experimentation testbed over a dark fibre network connecting Smart Internet Lab to a number of urban city centre locations (including We The Curious, MShed, Watershed & Bristol VR Lab) and created a multi-technology testbed.

The talk will provide technical information the 5GUK Test Network's capabilities and ways for researchers to engage.
