AWTG as delivery partner to the Scotland 5G Centre’s first rural 5G connectivity hub

AWTG is delighted to be the delivery partner providing the Scotland 5G Centre (S5GC) first rural 5G connectivity hub at The Crichton in Dumfries, announced here.

This is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate a wide range of pioneering use cases over 5G. Further, AWTG is delighted to be working with the S5GC, building on its depth of past 5G successes and its profile of 5G activities in Scotland in particular—such as in Dundee and Glasgow.

Aside from designing, deploying and operating the 5G network that will be used to deliver the use cases, a key aspect of this work is extensive consultancy on aspects of 5G use cases development, business modelling and market analysis, and the actual programming of applications for the 5G use cases among other topics. This project is therefore pioneering in terms of its range and scope, and its end-to-end nature of delivery.


We at AWTG are excited to play our part in S5GConnect hubs. 5G connectivity hub will take advantage of the unique nature of 5G to address a wide range of use cases and create fresh opportunities that benefit local businesses and communities.

With the first rural 5G connectivity hub in Scotland, The Crichton will host several advanced use cases and applications exploring the potential of 5G in transforming communities and improving socio-economic benefits in Scotland. The planned use cases and applications will range from agritech to remote healthtech and assisted living initiatives.
