The Welsh Government has announced that a £4million research and development centre will be based at Bangor University.

The project, which will be backed by EU funding, will focus on digital signal processing (DSP) and how existing fibre networks can adapt to 5G technology, which will provide high-speed wireless internet connectivity.

Counsel General & Brexit Minister, Jeremy Miles (Lab, Neath) said: “The DSP Centre of Excellence puts Wales at the very heart of innovation in this key economic sector, and positions Bangor University at the top of the ICT research industry. Collaboration between top academics from Wales and world-wide institutions, high profile international companies and Welsh and UK SMEs, will lead to ground-breaking, world-class research, resulting in cutting-edge solutions to advance the global 5G economy.”
