South Korean mobile operator SK Telecom has announced it will establish a 5G network on a military campus to enable smart training for cadets. SK Telecom will establish a 5G network in the Korea Military Academy’s campus in northern Seoul within the first half of this year to support technology-based military training, Yonhap news agency reports. VR shooting training and AR war games will be available for cadets, the company said.
According to SK Telecom, while the current system only allows a small number of people train at a time, the cyber training programs would enable training by about 200 cadets at the same time. When the infrastructure is ready, SK Telecom said cadets will wear connected devices that would check their health conditions in real time and provide customized information based on big data technology.
