BAI to build a 5G network smart city for Sunderland, UK

Sunderland, United Kingdom, is set to have a 5G mobile infrastructure, putting it on track to become one of the UK’s most advanced smart cities.

Sunderland City Council has awarded a 20-year strategic partnership to BAI Communications to design, build and operate next-generation digital infrastructure including a private 5G small cell network. The project is the next step on Sunderland City Council’s journey to achieve its global smart city ambition, having been awarded the UK Smart City of the Year 2020 accolade and Connected Britain Digital Council of the Year 2021.

The first phase of the partnership will see a backbone of 5G connectivity, based on a neutral host model, established within the city by summer 2022. Greater high-speed 5G mobile connectivity, which offers much faster response times across the network, will be complemented by other networking technologies.
