Press release: Government to boost 5G and simplify planning to support mobile deployment

first_imgPrevious investment in the 5G testbeds and trials programme has driven work in the healthcare, tourism, transport and broadcasting sectors. The latest investment will support similar work in the logistics and manufacturing sectors.Projects will trial ways which can help these sectors increase their productivity and output, boosting the UK economy. The trials could cover different manufacturing processes as well as across road, air, and sea based freight logistics.The funding was announced by Digital Secretary Jeremy Wright at the 5G World Conference as part of London Tech Week. The latest round of investment is through the £200 million project to test 5G technology that’s up to ten times faster than 4G and able to support more than a million devices per square kilometre.Digital Secretary Jeremy Wright said: As part of our modern Industrial Strategy, we’re making sure that Britain has a telecoms infrastructure that is fit for the future. 5G is about more than mobile phone consumers having a fast and reliable connection anywhere in the country. It’s a vital piece of technology that can be used to improve the productivity and growth of our industrial sectors. That’s why we’re excited to develop new trials in areas such as manufacturing and logistics that can really benefit from 5G. We expect a public competition to launch later this year for bids to be made for the next testbed and trials in 5G. The competition will be open for bids from across the whole of the UK. The recent release by the Ministry of Defence of 168 megahertz in the 8 gigahertz band, puts the total spectrum released under PSSRP at 552 MegaHertz. The Government has undertaken a thorough, evidence-based and hard-headed review of the 5G supply chain to ensure the secure and resilient roll-out of 5G. Throughout the review, we have consulted extensively with industry and have been clear from the start on their need to comply with the government’s final decision which will be published in due course. In addition to the new funding, the Government has confirmed that it will consult on proposals to simplify planning processes in England to both support the further roll-out of 4G and aid the faster introduction of 5G.Hamish MacLeod, Director at Mobile UK, said: Getting the planning system right for future 5G and today’s 4G networks is critical to ensure the UK continues to lead the world in digital connectivity. It is right that the Government has announced it is to look at simplifying planning processes and we stand ready to work in partnership to ensure this can happen as quickly as possible to aid the continued rollout of mobile networks. This is part of the Government’s long-term strategy for meeting its digital connectivity targets, outlined in the Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review.The plans involve tackling barriers to deployment and creating the right conditions for investment to deliver better network coverage that supports the way we live and work today.A key part of this is making new spectrum available to increase capacity for mobile connectivity. The Ministry of Defence, in partnership with DCMS, has committed to making 168MHz of new spectrum available to facilitate the deployment of fixed and mobile networks.This means the Government has already exceeded its target to make 500MHz of public sector spectrum available for commercial use by 2020, and will continue to work with departments to explore opportunities for more spectrum to be made available.Notes to editors:last_img read more

Dodgers place Joc Pederson on DL with concussion

first_imgHyun-Jin Ryu’s next step remains to be determined, but Roberts said the left-hander could remain with the Dodgers either as a starter or a “temporary” long reliever.“We’re still trying to work through his role,” Roberts said. “I had a conversation with him. He’s eager to pitch, feels he’s physically able to pitch. It’s a delicate situation because we don’t have a particular day we can start him.”The Dodgers’ five-man rotation is set through Sunday, and Roberts said he’ll try to keep everyone in turn at least once more through the order. Ryu hasn’t pitched since May 18.Sending Ryu to Triple-A seems unlikely since his contract allows him to block any assignment to the minor leagues. Pitching in relief isn’t much more realistic for a 30-year-old who’s made 10 relief appearances and 252 starts in a professional career that began in 2006 in Korea.“We’re trying to be very sensitive to his routine,” Roberts said. “His routine is very important. When you’re talking about a different role you’ve got to appreciate that.”Ryu is 2-5 with a 4.75 earned-run average in seven starts this season. His six-year, $36 million contract, which expires after next season, doesn’t limit the Dodgers from trading Ryu to any team.AlsoIn a swap of left-handed relievers, Luis Avilan was placed on the 10-day disabled list with left triceps soreness and Adam Liberatore was activated from the DL. Avilan has a 3.00 ERA in 15 innings over 23 appearances this season. Liberatore had made two appearances for the Dodgers, allowing one run in 1⅓ innings, when he was placed on the 10-day DL with a left groin strain May 9. …Justin Turner took ground balls at third base briefly before the game and has been cleared to throw from up to 90 feet. He hasn’t been cleared to run, but said his strained hamstring feels “way better than I thought I would feel at this point.” …Rachel Robinson, Jackie Robinson’s widow, was chosen as the 2017 recipient of the John Jordan “Buck” O’Neil Lifetime Achievement Award by the National Baseball Hall of Fame. “Not be on my phone much, no TV, no video games, and basically just stare at a wall in a dark room,” he said. “You get so anxious and you want to go do something, and you can’t. It kind of (stinks), but it’s part of the game.”Pederson has a .200 batting average, a .309 on-base percentage, and a .314 slugging percentage in 35 games this season. His slash line fell further this month (.182/.297/.291), and Pederson hadn’t hit leadoff since May 15.Chris Taylor played center field and led off Thursday against the St. Louis Cardinals. It was the fifth time Taylor has led off this season, and only the second time he’s played center field.“It’s an opportunity,” Manager Dave Roberts said. “We talked about having Chris play some center field, and how he and Kiké (Hernandez) have similar skill sets. This is an opportunity to give him a runway with Joc down to get a little bit more comfortable in center field.”No role for Ryu LOS ANGELES >> The Dodgers placed center fielder Joc Pederson on the 7-day concussion DL retroactive to Wednesday.Pederson, 25, said he’d never been diagnosed with a concussion before colliding with the outfield wall, and teammate Yasiel Puig, attempting to catch a fly ball Tuesday night.Any initial optimism that Pederson could return quickly was dashed when he continued to feel “a little off.” Thursday, two days after the collision; he wasn’t even certain that seven days would be enough time to recover.For now, Pederson has been instructed to limit certain activities that stimulate the brain.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
