In Aachen, Germany, Accenture-company umlaut has opened a private 5G standalone Open RAN network for organizations. Companies from all sectors may create, test, and deploy ultra-high-speed and low-latency connectivity solutions more quickly thanks to this ‘5G Campus Lab’ without having to spend money constructing their own 5G network.

“Our 5G Campus Lab is the ideal testing ground for companies wanting to capitalize on latest wireless connectivity technologies, cloud-based Open RAN virtualized infrastructure, and massive Multi-Input, Multi-Output (MIMO) antennas,” said Hakan Ekmen, CEO Telecommunication at umlaut.

As businesses move toward a total enterprise reinvention that will use technology, data, and artificial intelligence (AI) to revolutionize every aspect of their business, strong wireless connectivity is becoming more and more crucial, stated umlaut. Introducing robotics and cloud-based automation solutions to factories are just two examples of this change, which would produce large volumes of data and place tremendous strain on data networks.

5G is a key enabler of smart connected products and manufacturing,” said Hakan Ekmen, CEO Telecommunication at umlaut. “Our 5G Campus Lab is the ideal testing ground for companies wanting to capitalize on latest wireless connectivity technologies, cloud-based Open RAN virtualized infrastructure, and massive Multi-Input, Multi-Output (MIMO) antennas.”

Both Indoor and Outdoor Spaces

The 100 MHz of C-Band spectrum provided by umlaut’s 5G Campus Lab spans both indoor and outdoor spaces. It doesn’t require LTE technology for signaling or information transfer because it is a 5G standalone network. It is enabled by Open RAN, a new technology that makes use of open interfaces to enable communication between hardware and software components from many suppliers, enabling creative wireless solutions at affordable prices.

To sum up, the 5G Campus Lab offers the following capabilities and services:

  • Businesses may evaluate their current 5G use cases – to find and fix problems up front, such making sure various end devices and sensors function well with one another. They don’t need to establish their own private 5G networks, which are expensive to build and typically entail obtaining a license from network authorities, so they can collaborate without needing to do so.
  • Companies can experiment with umlaut’s use cases – These encompass, but are not limited to: software-defined vehicles; telemedicine with a digitalized rescue chain; smart manufacturing, including process automation and predictive maintenance; and real-time augmented reality for digital twins.
  • umlaut shares its holistic engineering and industry expertise – umlaut assists businesses in creating and deploying new, unique 5G use cases that make use of best-in-class technologies, implement security-by-design, and enhance energy efficiency.
  • umlaut supports clients looking to build their own private network – With its in-depth knowledge of the difficulties involved in the integration and compatibility of network devices and technologies like Open RAN, umlaut enables clients wishing to create their own private network.
