The CampusDynA consortium, comprising of German industry leaders such as Gestalt Robotics, T-Systems, OSRAM, Fraunhofer, and Werner-von-Siemens Center for Industry and Science, has chosen IS-Wireless as the provider of the 5G network based on the Open RAN model. It will be deployed in Berlin later this year.
The consortium focuses on exploring the potential of Open RAN private networks in industrial applications, including autonomous mobile robotics and optimisation of energy use in production plants. IS-Wireless will support these activities by delivering a complete Radio Access Network including O-RU (radio units), DU (distributed units) and CU (centralised units). The company will also provide near-RT RIC (RAN Intelligent Controller) with xApps ensuring the necessary network performance needed in the demanding use case of connected and autonomous mobile robots. Successful CampusDynA private 5G deployment in Berlin is of prime importance for the consortium members to reach the project goals: gaining insights on the potential of Open RAN technology for industrial applications.
