JapanNetworkingTelecomTop Stories

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has announced that OPTAGE, a leading Japanese telecommunications provider, has selected HPE 5G Core Stack for its testbed Local 5G network – as part of Japan’s private 5G initiative.

OPTAGE is testing the viability of Local 5G networks to meet business customer demands for use cases such as manufacturing, logistics, healthcare and education.

Local 5G is a Japanese Government initiative that enables organizations, such as enterprises, local government and universities, to deploy private 5G networks in a limited area using a spectrum that is different from that used by mobile operators.

Local 5G testing is taking place across Japan as organizations seek guaranteed bandwidth, low latency and support for thousands of devices. With dedicated bandwidth and infrastructure, Local 5G networks are expected to be particularly well suited for the specific connectivity needs within manufacturing and industrial use cases.

Testing will help determine whether Local 5G can meet the needs of the business.

OPTAGE is testing a highly reliable and secure private 5G network to explore the possibility of offering Local 5G services for business customers. OPTAGE chose HPE 5G Core Stack for its private 5G testing because the pre-integrated, automated software stack can be quickly and easily deployed within hours.
