New Telekom campus network goes live in Leipzig with Ericsson as vendor
Feb 28, 2020
With Ericsson as network supplier, Deutsche Telekom has deployed its innovative campus network solution – a combination of private and public networks – in a new campus network site in Leipzig, the fourth one the German service provider has set up in Europe.
The live solution, implemented in the BMW factory, is a unique combination of private and public networks called a “dual-slice” solution, and consists of a private mobile communications network for plant operations and staff, combined with the public network transmitting the same signal strength for devices that are not allowed to transmit in the private network.
In addition to the private campus network, the public network will transmit the same signal strength. This ensures a perfect connection even for terminal devices that are not allowed to transmit in the private network. For example, smartphones of customers or suppliers.
Ericsson and Deutsche Telekom are also further developing the functionalities of campus solutions based on 5G Standalone (SA) technology. The 5G SA architecture supports applications that require an ultra-short response time, also known as Ultra-Reliable and Low-Latency Communication (URLLC). Joint customer tests are already planned for this year.
