At this year’s IEEE++ 5G Summit trade fair and conference on May 12, 2022 in Dresden, albis-elcon system Germany GmbH, CampusGenius GmbH and Smart Systems Hub GmbH together with the Saxony Trade and Invest Corporation (Wirtschaftsförderung Sachsen GmbH – WFS) will present Germany’s first open IoT-LAB 5G campus network. This 5G network serves companies to test and implement new technologies and applications for 5G wireless networks. albis-elcon is a subsidiary of UET Group AG.

At the joint booth of the 5G Summit, the companies involved will show how 5G projects can be advanced by successfully pooling cross-sectoral knowledge.

The aim is to test innovations in order to deliver application-oriented solutions, thereby strengthening the European ecosystem for private networks in 5G telecommunications. Among others, the 5G OPERA project is also supported. 5G OPERA is developing a Franco-German ecosystem in the field of private 5G networks (“campus networks”) based on an open architecture.


Mobile 5G Campus Networks

The private 5G network in the Internet of Things (IoT) laboratory of the Smart Systems Hub, which was realised in cooperation with UET subsidiary albis-elcon and CampusGenius, will be presented at the joint booth. As a testbed – i.e. real environment – for the development of new integration solutions, it is an integral part of the infrastructure of the IoT Lab. It offers partner companies the opportunity to test and implement new technologies using a 5G wireless network.

The Smart Systems Hub is based on this awareness. It actively develops and promotes cooperation between companies. Cooperation and co-innovation are essential key components for complex challenges in Industry 4.0 in order to successfully create complete solutions.

5G campus networks are characterised by better radio quality paired with greater network security, improved data control, larger bandwidth, low latency and high flexibility in terms of service quality. In this way, customers make decisive advances in automation and networking in their companies. In addition to the actual infrastructure, albis-elcon offers its customers tailor-made integration of existing devices and systems into the 5G campus solution. The company will thus become a full solution provider for 5G campus networks. “We see a significant growth market in 5G campus networks with end-to-end integration of the existing device landscape. The great interest in our approach as an ecosystem with partners and integration expertise confirms that we are on the right track,” says Werner Neubauer, CEO of the UET Group and Managing Director of albis-elcon.
