Home to the very latest 5G technology

Date posted: September 27, 2020

Coventry University has made great strides in bringing new technology to our region, with a new 5G partnership with Vodafone, and £50,000 funding received for ‘immersive technology’ – which refers to its capacity to recreate physical spaces and environments in digital simulations.

Coventry and Warwickshire Creative Futures (CWCF) – a partnership between Coventry University (lead) and the University of Warwick – will accelerate research, development, and innovation activity related to the immersive technology sector in the region.

And the 5G network is the next phase in 5G technology, installed on the university’s Coventry city-center campus. It will support the trial of state-of-the-art virtual reality learning technologies to train student nurses and allied health professionals in the university’s school of Health and Life Sciences.
