Aquaculture is one of three industry verticals in the 5GHEART project. The use case for the aquaculture vertical will comprise of two pilot sites, showcasing the applicability
of the solution developed in different locations. The first site in Greece (GR) will utilize the 5G-EVE node and the second pilot in Norway (NO) will use the Norwegian node of
5G-VINNI to access the network.
The scenarios to be developed for the two pilot sites:
5G-HEART investigates aquaculture use cases based on the real needs of the sector.
