The nexGworx 5G Laboratory Service provides the ability for customers to explore potential 5G enabled solutions in a dedicated environment at Malvern Hills Science Park. The service provides access to our market leading mobile data private network testbed with internet breakout using either 5G or 4G standards and both indoor and outdoor coverage. Customers can use a combination of their own or nexGworx provided equipment including multi-access edge compute, modems and IoT devices. The laboratory can accommodate up to six customer representatives and in addition to the mobile data private network, is equipped with collaboration tools including interactive whiteboards, flip chart stands, display screens plus racking to temporarily mount customer equipment. Exclusive testbed access or collaboration with other testbed customers can also be arranged.
The benefits of the service are the exploration of use cases dependent on low latency, highly reliable and secure by design connectivity that can provide both market opportunity for private network enabled solutions and process/productivity improvement for a customer’s existing business.
The service provides an entry point for customers of all sizes who wish to undertake initial use case concept testing through to release candidate solutions (including subsequent release) that cannot otherwise be completed at their own facilities. Customers of this service will typically progress to deploy a private testbed at their own facility or even progress directly to commercial private network solutions.
Our team of experienced mobile network solution consultants will provide support in the specification of use cases, development of use case testing plans, data analytics, interpretation of results and business case development. We can also advise on the availability of public funds for the support of research and development. These aspects of the service can be provided remotely before customers attend the laboratory.
The standard service is priced per customer representative per day plus a professional services charge with options for nexGworx provided equipment and the level of professional support.
