IS-Wireless to provide private 5G at Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institut – Mobile Europe

The deployment will be part of an initiative to foster the ecosystem for open 5G campus networks and Germany in Europe, CampusOS

The Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institut (HHI – pictured), which researches and develops mobile and optical communication networks and systems, has chosen IS-Wireless to deploy a private 5G network. Fraunhofer HHI co-coordinates the CampusOS flagship project, which supports the development of an ecosystem for 5G campus networks in Germany and Europe.

The project’s consortium includes Bosch, Siemens, Rohde & Schwarz and Deutsche Telekom. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK).

The IS-Wireless installation is intended to contribute to designing high-demand, 5G-based campus networks that will be later be deployed commercially in the German market. The networks will support applications such as Industry 4.0, including the coordination of automated guided vehicle fleets (AGVs) and 3D mapping of storage areas to improve in-house transport processes.

Other potential use cases include connected construction sites and construction logistics. According to IS-Wireless the “near real-time coordination of distributed and partially mobile work processes is essential, based on digital twins of construction sites”. How did we ever build those pyramids?

It continues, “[In] such applications, the optimal placement of the data processing infrastructure, as well as mechanisms ensuring that unwanted interferences do not lead to a disruption of the existing sensors, are essential. IS-Wireless, with its Private 5G, addresses these issues.”

IS-Wirless will deliver its Open RAN Distributed Unit and Centralized Unit, and and near real-time RAN Intelligent Controller for indoor and outdoor installations at a Fraunhofer HHI site at Berlin’s Lanolinfabrik.

“In considering industrial applications, handling very large data volumes and ensuring very low latencies for communication and data processing are mandatory. We also focus on interference, either by preventing them from occurring or by using them to our advantage, thanks to the scheduler we’ve designed,” says Artur Chmielewski, Head of Sales at IS-Wireless.

Last summer IS-Wireless announced it was involved in a consortium to build a private 5G network at Werner-von-Siemens Center for Industry and Science in Berlin for the control of connected and autonomous mobile robots.
