Telekom to build 5G campus network

Deutsche Telekom has announced plans to build a 5G campus network at the Future Factory Hub in Berlin.

The German telecoms giant is working with Osram Licht to wirelessly connect machines in a real production environment at the research campus being built in the Werner-von-Siemens Centre in Berlin. Campus networks are exclusive mobile networks covering a defined local campus offering a closed wireless network and stronger data security than public networks.

Telekom has announced it will build its 5G campus network in the 5G thematic area of the Future Factory Hub where applications for autonomous production logistics are being researched and tested. As part of a project funded by the Berlin Senate, researchers hope to discover autonomous production solutions based on 5G and edge computing which can be quickly transferred into the production technology practice of companies.

The 5G campus network will cover the Future Factory Hub building and its outdoor areas and will initially enable the operation of autonomously driving logistical transport vehicles.

Lutz Scneider, who is responsible for autonomous logistics solutions at Telekom’s customer division T-Systems, said: "We are pleased to be able to support research and development of innovative industrial solutions based on ultra-fast mobile communications and edge computing.
