The procurement will cover the following activities:
• survey, design, construction, installation and testing of the private 5G network
• solutions for the identified use cases
• integration of the use case technology with the 5G private network
• supplying the necessary hardware, software and devices to support the network and the use cases
• ongoing maintenance & support
• network capacity for growth in data consumption to enable delivery of further use cases through expansion of the scope over time
• support the five venues to implement the use cases
