    NAA Member News: AMRC – 5G helping to increase manufacturing efficiency and flexibility

    The delivery of the UK’s first, fully operational 5G Standalone (5G SA) testbed is bringing UK manufacturers another step closer to creating a more adaptable manufacturing ecosystem.

    Lead engineers from the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) North West hosted the 5G Factory of the Future programme close-out event, alongside project partners at the end of last month.

    “The 5G FoF project has successfully delivered the largest manufacturing testbed in the UK, with 5G standalone capability, proven working 5G use cases and developed native 5G devices” said Dr Aparajithan Sivanathan, project lead for the 5G Factory of the Future programme and head of digital technology at AMRC North West. 

    “We have also created a business model that will sustain the testbed beyond the end of the project. 5G is going to be the future and we’re now thinking about the next phase.”
