Experimental activities with King’s College will include the set-up of a 5G Tactile Internet Lab with test bed capabilities, enabling the creation, testing and real-time adaptation of radio technology in software. This will occur both in devices and remotely as part of Cloud RAN experimentation. An Ericsson King’s College London 5G Tactile Internet showroom will showcase developed prototypes and connect to real-time live test beds in London and globally.

“Currently we can see and hear through the Internet, but we cannot touch,” said Professor Mischa Dohler, Head of King’s College London’s Centre for Telecommunications Research in the Department of Informatics. “We have a vision to create the Tactile Internet, where we would be able to touch through the medium of the Internet.”
