5G & SMART TOURISM

5G is the next generation of mobile Telecommunication networks. Many believe it will bring a step-change in digital products and services - better supporting the Internet of Things (IoT), Augmented and Virtual Reality and high definition mobile video.  

Bristol Futures Global has been working with a consortium of leading technology and tourism businesses, academics and public bodies in the West of England cities of Bristol and Bath to research the potential of 5G in the tourism sector, We call this 5G Smart Tourism.  The research includes,

  • 5G small cell connectivity in a complex world heritage destination - the Roman Baths
  • Augmented and virtual reality content to enhance the on-site visitor experience and attract new audiences
  • New business models for delivering connectivity and services, for example, through a neutral hosting model
  • Understanding the drivers, benefits and barriers to 5G uptake in the tourism sector.
