Korea Telecom (KT) and Yonsei University (YU) signed an MoU (memorandum of understanding) for deployment of a 5G testbed at YU to be used by the PriMO-5G project. The MoU signing ceremony was held on Friday 16th October 2018 at YU.

The ‘5G Open Platform’ will be based on KT’s 5G (3.5 GHz) commercial network solutions and will provide a platform for development and testing of 5G use cases, such as, autonomous driving and public safety. To that end, the ‘5G Open Platform’ will be used to verify the results of the ‘PriMO-5G’ project in an actual 5G commercial environment.

As part of the testbed initiative, YU and KT will  organize an event called 5G OPEN (Open Platform for Evolved Networks), on 6 December 2018 at YU around 5G multi-disciplinary research.
