5G HUB – Connecting New Technologies

Ericsson, VodafoneZiggo, Brainport Eindhoven, High Tech Campus Eindhoven and the municipality of the city of Eindhoven have teamed up to create a 5G experience environment. In Eindhoven, at the 5G HUB, residents, students, start-ups and businesses can start using 'real 5G' at the 5G HUB test location and get familiar with the possibilities of 5G. Here one can experiment with 5G, test applications and define a business model. In the 5G HUB we put our heads together with scientists, students and numerous companies. Ultimately with only one goal: to maximize the potential of 5G.

What can you experiece?

The central purpose of the 5G lab is: how can we solve societal challenges in cities - such as increasing care needs or traffic problems - with the help of new technologies? Other aspects, such as questions about possible health effects and spatial integration, will also be addressed. The mobile 5G network of the future is the successor to the current 4G network and includes a combination of innovations that can be used for this purpose.

The 5G HUB can be used for a numerous of occasions; to explore and test real live cases and pilots with social impact for everyone in the city. 'Connected Ambulances', a collaboration of VodafoneZiggo and Ericsson with Philips, GGD ambulance service and the Catharina Hospital in the region. The aim is to use super-fast 5G connections to provide 'remote assistance' for diagnosis and preparation for treatment.

The 5G HUB will provide students and scientists a place to test new 5G applications and prototypes and submit them to practical tests. The 5G HUB Lab as the 'early phase' investor and accelerator based at the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, will have a stimulating role as a partner to select and supervise startups and student initiatives.

High Tech Campus Eindhoven will have a 5G lab where companies (start-ups, SMEs, multinationals), students and scientists can test new 5G applications and prototypes and submit them to practical tests. LUMO Labs, the 'early phase' investor and accelerator based in Eindhoven, will have a stimulating role as a partner to select and supervise startups and student initiatives.

The 5G Hub will make the city of Eindhoven the first real '5G field lab' in the Netherlands. We have already turned on 5G in several places in the city. And together with companies such as PSV, Philips and event hall De Effenaar, we are testing 5G there.

5G Connected Ambulance

5G HUB ‘connected ambulance’ developed by Philips, VodafoneZiggo and Ericsson in cooperation between the local GGD ambulance service and the city’s Catharina Hospital. These parties are researching how 5G can be leveraged to support the ambulance team with performing an onsite ultrasound to examine the patient with remote assistance from a physician in the hospital. It is in the benefit of patients to start the right treatment as soon as possible.

Corporations, companies, start-ups, scale-ups, governments, knowledge institutions: anyone with digital plans is welcome at the 5G HUB. To innovate, experiment, meet and work together. Maybe even roll out something together. Visit an event, use a space, organize a meeting or just drop by! And discover that everything is possible.
