Singtel to deploy 5G millimetre wave solutions

Singtel has been appointed by semiconductor giant Micron Technology to deploy its 5G millimetre wave (mmWave) solutions with localised edge core at the semiconductor manufacturer’s largest 3D NAND flash memory fabrication plant in Singapore, in a first for Singapore and the semiconductor manufacturing sector.

This commercial deployment is the first time Micron is exploring 5G for Industry 4.0 semiconductor manufacturing – making it the first company in Singapore to deploy mmWave campus solution plus edge core on-premises and operationalise 5G at scale.

Micron will also be leveraging Singtel’s Paragon, the industry’s first all-in-one platform for 5G network, edge computing and services orchestration, to conduct real time performance monitoring and feedback.

Singtel’s 5G mmWave solutions will be used at Micron’s cleanroom to support the development of a variety of digitally enabled and enhanced applications from automated visual inspections of individual chips to augmented reality (AR) for operations and maintenance.

The rollout follows successful trials using Singtel’s GENIE – the world’s first portable 5G-in-a-box platform, which helped validate the mmWave solution, verify its performance and demonstrate the operational benefits of Singtel’s 5G solutions in Micron’s next generation cleanroom.
