umlaut launches Open RAN private network to accelerate development of connectivity solutions for clients

DataDigital TransformationGermanyTop Stories

umlaut, part of Accenture, has opened a private 5G standalone, Open RAN network in Aachen, Germany. The ‘5G Campus Lab’ enables companies across industries to design, test and implement ultra-high-speed and low-latency connectivity solutions faster without having to invest in building their own network.

Powerful wireless connectivity is becoming increasingly important as companies are heading towards a total enterprise reinvention, which will transform every part of their business through technology, data and Artificial Intelligence. Some examples of this transformation include connected vehicles and bringing robotics and cloud-based automation solutions to factories, which will generate massive amounts of data and put enormous pressure on data networks.

The 5G Campus Lab offers the following capabilities and services:

  • Companies can validate their existing 5G use cases to identify and resolve issues upfront, such as ensuring that different end-devices and sensors work smoothly together. They can go hands-on without having to set up their own private 5G networks, which are costly to build and usually require obtaining a license from network authorities.
  • Companies can experiment with umlaut’s use cases. These include but aren’t limited to the following areas: smart manufacturing, including process automation and predictive maintenance; telemedicine with a digitized rescue chain; software-defined vehicles; and real-time Augmented Reality for digital twins.
  • With its holistic engineering and industry expertise, umlaut helps companies develop and deploy new individual 5G use cases, which leverage best-of-breed technologies, apply security-by-design and support energy efficiency.
