MOTIVATION AND OBJECTIVES
The 5G-Industry Campus Europe is the first site in Europe with 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 8000 m², the 5G network covers 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 the industry, the 5G network operates within a frequency band of 3.7 to 3.8 GHz and additionally has access to a 4G network.
START WITH 5G FUTURE
- Data rates up to 10 Gbit/s
- Latency times below 1ms
- Operate numerous devices simultaneously in tightly defined radio cells
Testbed of the 5G-ACIA
The 5G-Industry Campus Europe is one of the four 5G testbeds of the 5G Alliance for Connected Industries and Automation (5G-ACIA) since April 2021. The testbed is part of the 5GSMART project, a collaborative EU project that aims to show how 5G can boost manufacturing.
