New NYP-StarHub Centre powers 5G solutions for companies
Published on 07 Jan 2020

Dear Media Friends,

We are hours away to 2020 – the year when Singapore will see 5G. Are companies ready for the digital disruption and opportunities 5G will bring? Some firms have told Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) and StarHub about their need for expertise to help them leverage the potential of 5G into their specific environments and industries.

In response, the NYP-StarHub Application & Experience Centre for 5G (APEX 5G) will be launched. Here, companies will find technical expertise and use cases they can adopt.

For instance, in healthcare, emergency-department teams can exchange life-saving vital information at super-fast speeds. In advanced manufacturing, devices can talk seamlessly to each other without lag, which will transform and simplify production lines in the future. These and other examples from retail and urban transport will be showcased at the launch of the Centre on January 07 2020. Singapore General Hospital (SGH), Microsoft, ST-Microelectronics, George Fischer, Avetics and Yitu are among partners implementing these use cases when the network is ready. 

Ms Jeanne Liew, Principal & CEO, Nanyang Polytechnic and Mr Peter Kaliaropoulos, Chief Executive, StarHub
 will be present to officiate the launch. We would like to invite you and your photographer/camera crew to join us at the launch of the Centre. You will be able to get hands-on with these use cases, and speak to representatives of the various companies. (Please let us know your interview or other requests in advance, if possible, so that we can arrange a seamless experience for you too.)
