With the 5G launch in Germany, a band was also reserved for campus networks, for use in industry. The political decision not to auction the 3.7–3.8 GHz frequency range to mobile network operators has already created a spirit of optimism in a number of companies.
It is to be expected that not only new radio networks will be set up in the companies, new applications will be developed, new services and business models will emerge. The protected frequency range for campus networks is not linked to a specific radio technology. Campus networks can also be implemented using existing and proven radio technologies, e.g. LTE Advanced – also known as 4.9G.
Anyone who wants to implement a high-performance radio network in their company today therefore does not have to wait until 5G components are available for use in industry. Even with LTE Advanced, high data rates and a high quality of service (QoS) can be achieved.
Wireless Congress 2020 at electronica
At the 17th Wireless Congress on 11 and 12 November 2020, campus networks will not only be an important topic. Other applications and radio technologies are also developing rapidly – from mobile telephony (5G) to Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2.
Real-time capable radio communication (Wireless Time-Sensitive Networking), tactile Internet, Software-defined Networking (SDN) and resilient radio networks are further areas of intensive research and development.
New systems, technologies and applications
Developers, researchers and professional users are invited to report on their current work and practical experiences with the new wireless technologies at the Wireless Congress 2020.
They can submit proposals for lectures and workshops until April 30, 2020.
