The National Museum of Singapore and the Children’s Museum Singapore will receive 5G Standalone (SA) connectivity and edge computing solutions from M1 Limited (M1), AsiaPac Technology Pte Ltd (AsiaPac), a wholly owned subsidiary of M1, and Keppel Data Centres Holding Pte Ltd (Keppel DC), it was announced today (CMSG). The National Heritage Board (NHB) has a larger program in place to gradually roll out 5G technology to all of its national museums and heritage sites around Singapore.

Due to M1’s ultra-high bandwidth, low latency, and hyperconnectivity, museums and curators have new opportunities to engage and draw in new audiences in creative ways, including by enhancing the visitor experience with new layers of interactivity and immersion.

Every touchpoint would also be an immediate source of data for museums to better curate and tailor displays thanks to the Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) infrastructure deployed from Keppel DC’s world-class data center colocation. The introduction of augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), 3D holographic displays, 4K ultra high resolution remote video tours, and other technologies will enable museums to provide more engaging, hyper-personalized experiences.
