沃达丰(Vodafone)开发了一个私人5 t g网络estbed for marine applications and is opening it up for companies to test out new technologies.

The Smart Sound Connect Marine 5G Mobile Private Network is operated by Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) using equipment and technology from Vodafone and Nokia as well as a high-speed data mesh network from Steatite for offshore links.

The testbed will be free to use for local and international businesses to create and develop marine 5G use cases, starting with a digital twin set up by Lloyd’s Register and the National Physical Laboratory.

There are five 5G sites seamlessly integrated to provide an advanced communication capability from the quayside in Plymouth to more than 20 miles (32km) offshore with remote operations centres based in Oceansgate and PML, which is managing the service.

海洋向自治Testbed (MAAT) will see the creation of a fully synthetic and virtualised environment to test, prove and assure marine autonomy scenarios by using live data from Smart Sound Connect on a digital platform. This digital twin environment will form the basis for a marine autonomy certification and classification programme for autonomous vehicles and is led by Lloyds Register and the National Physical Laboratory (NPL).

The Requirements for Operational Assurance of Data Standards (ROADS) programme aims to develop specific digital standards and measurements for maritime applications, making use of MAAT.
