Senior Manager/Manager for 5G Programme Office (5G-PO)

The fifth generation of cellular network (5G) will be a key component and enabler of Singapore’s on-going efforts in building our Digital Economy and accelerating cluster-level transformations. Earlier in Jun 2019, IMDA announced Singapore’s 5G vision and that we will focus on driving 5G innovation and research in strategic clusters namely Maritime, Smart Estates, Urban Mobility, Industry 4.0, Government and Consumer applications. IMDA has since been working closely with various lead agencies, mobile network operators (MNOs), industry and academia to support feasible 5G use-cases and identify meaningful research collaborations in 5G capabilities. IMDA is in the midst of establishing a 5G Agency Workgroup (5G-WG) to orchestrate Whole-of-Government (WOG) 5G efforts, optimise investments and scale developmental efforts in 5G through a coherent approach. The 5G-WG will identify demand, research needs and garner synergies across all efforts, chart out cluster-level 5G initiatives, and ultimately contribute to the larger Smart Nation and Digital Economy outcomes. To drive the 5G-WG agenda, 5GPO will be set up within IMDA to coordinate and support these cross-agencies efforts. The 5GPO will also facilitate the development of 5G ecosystem and 5G thought leadership.

In this role, you will be working with partners and stakeholders from other agencies, industry, regulators as well as infrastructure/communications players on the next-generation wireless technology - both locally and internationally.  The 5GPO will be key in aligning Singapore’s 5G efforts across agencies that oversee different industries developments, mapping out strategic cluster-level 5G strategies and capturing useful case studies from various implementation efforts of 5G in Singapore.
