How graduates and young engineers are learning the latest 5G tech firsthand image

How do you inspire the next generation of technical experts?

Give them inspiring projects, let them innovate with hands-on learning, throw in free data, sport, and make it fun! In May, Telstra’s young engineers and graduates had an incredible opportunity to immerse themselves in everything 5G around a 5G Supercell on the Gold Coast in Australia and play in the inaugural 5G Soccer Cup! The grads and engineers met with Telstra’s design experts, and were able to experience the power of millimetre-wave technology and advanced 5G beamforming. Over a dedicated standalone 5G network slice, they not only live streamed a soccer game with an ‘on field 360 HD camera’, but also conducted live EME testing of the site. The event showcased the immense potential for local sport applications.

Working alongside our team at the 5G Innovation Centre to build a slice on the new Telstra 5G standalone network, the team was able to use that slice to reserve a small portion of the network. This then provided an uninterrupted live stream of the graduate soccer game to spectators and viewers around the country.
