MK:5G Connecting Communities

The MK:5G project is a new initiative which focuses on the deployment of a 5G infrastructure designed exclusively to support research and development in the context of the smart city agenda in Milton Keynes. The envisaged 5G network will cover Central MK, as well as key sites such as the Stadium, Bletchley & CMK rail stations, MK Hospital, the local universities, key junctions on the M1 and a number of rural communities. Building on the work carried out in the MK:Smart project, the project will also deploy a dedicated data exchange facility, which will support trial applications across three sectors: Mobility, Health & Wellbeing, and Energy.

The project is led by Milton Keynes Council and is funded by the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP). The MK:5G Consortium also includes The Open University, BT, Huawei, CityFibre, TechMahindra, the Satellite Applications Catapult and the Connected Places Catapult. The main role of The Open University is to enhance the Data Hub infrastructure developed in MK:Smart to support the novel test cases associated with this initiative.
