IS-Wireless, the selected provider for the CampusDynA consortium, which consists of prominent German industry leaders like Gestalt Robotics, T-Systems, OSRAM, Fraunhofer, and the Werner-von-Siemens Center for Industry and Science, will be implementing a 5G network based on the Open RAN model in Berlin later this year.
The primary focus of the consortium is to explore the potential of Open RAN private networks in industrial applications, particularly in areas such as autonomous mobile robotics and optimizing energy usage in production plants. IS-Wireless will play a vital role in supporting these initiatives by delivering a comprehensive Radio Access Network that includes O-RU (radio units), DU (distributed units), and CU (centralized units). Additionally, the company will provide a near-real-time RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) with xApps, ensuring optimal network performance for the demanding requirements of connected and autonomous mobile robots.
The successful deployment of the private 5G network by CampusDynA in Berlin holds significant importance for the consortium members as it will enable them to achieve their project goals, such as gaining insights into the potential of Open RAN for industrial use cases. This collaboration aims to leverage the capabilities of 5G technology to drive advancements in robotics and energy optimization within the industrial sector.
