The GSMA has called on vertical industries government organisations and mobile network operators to submit 5G use cases to the Industry Challenge it launched to demonstrate the transformative power of connectivity.

The challenge will run throughout 2022 and will be promoted at key mobile industry events, including MWC Las Vegas 2022 and MWC Africa 2022; culminating in a showcase at MWC Barcelona 2023.

Participants will stand a chance to win industry awards and a showcase at MWC Barcelona 2023. Such awards are in six categories, as well as a GLOMO Award and demonstration space at MWC Barcelona 2023. The categories for the awards include Smart Production; Energy; Living; Entertainment; Productivity; and Innovation.

“We want to demonstrate that 5G is about more than speed and is already transforming service delivery for consumers and driving real, sustainable growth and innovation for vertical industries,” said Richard Cockle, Head of GSMA Foundry.

He argued that the challenge will bolster knowledge-sharing on our 5G Transformation Hub, which already offers a range of innovative and industry-applicable case studies using low band through to 5G mmWave technology.

Successful submissions to the Challenge will be hosted on the GSMA’s 5G Transformation Hub having been evaluated across a range of factors including their ability to generate revenue, increase productivity, provide social benefits and manage resources efficiently.
