Businesses will hear benefits of 5G

The launch of 5G services in the West Midlands and the implications for industry will be the focus of the next Manufacturing Business Network event to be held at the Midlands office of national audit, tax, advisory and risk firm Crowe.

Ninder Johal, who was recently appointed a non-executive director of West Midlands 5G Ltd, a new organisation set up to deliver the UK’s first region-wide 5G testbed, will lead the discussion.

The event is being held on Wednesday November 6, from 5.30pm to 7pm, at Crowe’s Midlands office at Black Country House, Rounds Green Road, Oldbury.

The next generation of mobile technology has arrived in the UK following the launch of 5G services from leading mobile network operators.

WM5G’s mission is to accelerate the deployment of 5G networks and test, prove and scale new 5G services across the West Midlands. The company is part of the DCMS 5G Test Beds and Trials Programme.

Johnathan Dudley, managing partner of Crowe in the Midlands and South West and national head of manufacturing, said: “The 5G network will be widely available in the UK in the next three years and is expected to have a profound impact on the global economy and the way people lives their lives.

“Ninder will discuss the next generation of mobile technology and how the deployment of necessary infrastructure will shape the future of the West Midlands.”

Ninder Johal said: “WM5G is working closely with manufacturers, SMEs, universities, and hospitals across the region on new 5G applications that will help drive economic growth and make a real and positive difference to the people and businesses of the West Midlands.”

He will be discussing how 5G can assist in improving machine health, quality assurance, supply chain automation, health and safety, logistics, product life management and how it will drive the introduction of new business models.
