5G Barcelona

Description / Objectives

The city is to be southern Europe’s 5G hub.

The Government of Catalonia, Barcelona City Council, Mobile World Capital Barcelona, the i2CAT Foundation, CTTC, Atos and the UPC have implemented the 5G Barcelona initiative to turn Catalonia into a European 5G digital hub. This pioneering project will create an experimental, open environment that promises to turn the city into a metropolitan laboratory of 5G technology.

5G Barcelona will also implement a 5G European digital hub based on an experimental infrastructure open to the metropolitan area, which will act as an urban, citizen and technology laboratory to validate 5G technologies and services.

This environment of open innovation will be based on collaboration between various stakeholders, both public and private, and a stimulus for the existing innovation ecosystem in Barcelona, helping to capture foreign investment, boost technology start-ups and develop an industry around 5G.

Various pilot projects have taken place in health, automotive industry, security, industry and entertainment.
