Satellite Applications Catapult to Develop UK’s First Private Standalone 5G Network

The Satellite Applications Catapult will be delivering a ground-breaking communications network across central Milton Keynes as part of the new MK:5G Connected Communities project. The deployment will be the first private standalone 5G network in the UK and will utilise the capabilities of the Catapult’s 5G Step-Out Centre in Westcott as well as a 5G new radio (NR) infrastructure across Milton Keynes. Using the new, enhanced connectivity, the Catapult will demonstrate how 5G can be used for a range of health and social care applications.
