The GSMA 5G Industry Challenge is calling for case study submissions of 5G best practices
The Challenge is designed to recognise the best 5G solutions for key early adopter markets by encouraging industry leaders to participate in an open global communications campaign. The challenge will run throughout 2022, feature in key industry events and communications and culminate in a challenge showcase at MWC Barcelona in February 2023. The objective is to encourage the sharing of 5G solution best practice, the demonstrable value of 5G and the growth in 5G global adoption. The case studies will be evaluated by how successfully they demonstrate the value of the solution through real life measurements such as saving resources, generating additional revenue, providing social benefits.
The six Challenge categories are:
- GSMA 5G Smart Production Challenge
- GSMA 5G Energy Challenge
- GSMA 5G Living Challenge
- GSMA 5G Entertainment Challenge
- GSMA 5G Productivity Challenge
- GSMA 5G Innovation Challenge
By entering, companies gain access to high level of publicity and relevant industry exposure on various channels including opportunity to be published on the GSMA 5G Transformation Hub. Each new case study concept provided will be considered for the 5G Transformation Hub pipeline. Chance to be showcased at MWC Barcelona as every winner will be promoted at the GSMA pavilion and top select case studies will receive placement in the centre of MWC Barcelona to showcase their solutions at the world’s leading technology show. GSMA will offer speaker opportunity in the Industry City at MWC.
Case studies will have a chance to become the category winner: each 6 categories will be announced as a winner and receive a physical & digital challenge trophy at MWC Barcelona.
