BIPT study reviews ‘successful foreign 5G applications’ – ICT News

The Belgian Institute for Postal Services and Telecommunications (BIPT) has published a study on foreign 5G applications. Based on 113 ‘relevant practical cases’, the institute aims to inspire Belgian companies to quickly adopt 5G at a time when technology is now approaching a large-scale installation.

In Belgium, 5G lags behind most other EU countries, with rollout already underway since 2018. The long awaited auction of future 5G radio spectrum will usually start with us next month. BIPT has commissioned Capgemini Invent to conduct a survey providing an overview of successful 5G initiatives abroad. This is a source of inspiration for the Belgian market, but also for the federal government’s program, where 5 24 million is planned for a 5G pilot project.

In case of interesting use

Despite delays in 5G, Belgium often has a definite lead over neighboring European countries, according to the survey, due to the proportion of companies active in AI, IoT and big data. “These technologies will certainly benefit from a high-performance 5G infrastructure and be able to create attractive applications,” says BIPT. In practice the selection was made based on six more criteria: impact on 5G awareness, acquired performance gain, sustainability, innovative nature, implementation of AI and Edge Computing II, as well as maturity and scalability.

113 uses were finally reviewed, which satisfied the conditions. With 88 percent, this is the majority of B2B-based uses. BIPT explains, ‘This is a difference in targeting more customer segment of the market than 4G technology.

Successful adoption

The list includes about one-fourth of the cases in the transport and logistics sector (24 percent). If we add production (22 percent) and ‘smart city’ systems (13 percent), more than half of the 67 projects in this use have selections. These practical cases therefore seem to represent the main possibilities for the successful adoption of 5G in Belgium.

Also, projects in the energy and utility sectors (12 percent), healthcare and biology (10 percent), defense and public safety (8 percent) percent, culture (5 percent) and public administration (5 percent) offer some possibilities. .

According to BIPT, usage patterns show that the use of 5G is associated with a variety of digital solutions, involving a number of technologies, such as automation, drones, cameras and connected sensors. Influential technologies include the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and edge computing.
