MOTIVATION AND OBJECTIVES
The 5G Industry Campus Europe will be the first site in Europe to have a comprehensive 5G network to explore and test new applications for 5G in production environments under real-world conditions. With an outdoor network of around 1 km² and a shop floor of 7000 m², the 5G network will cover the area of the RWTH Aachen Campus Melaten and the entire machine hall of the Fraunhofer IPT.
To ensure that the results are transferrable to industry, the 5G network will be set up to operate within a frequency band of 3.7 to 3.8 GHz and will additionally have access to a 4G network.
The research project „5G-Industry Campus Europe“ is funded
for three years by the BMVI (funding code: VB5GICEIPT).
