Private 5G Networks on the Rise in Germany Recently it has been publicly announced that in Germany there are currently 70 licenses given out for home and business entities allowing 5G networks implementation. This isn’t an interesting fact on its own, however when you take into account that only 33 licenses were given out only 5 months ago, things are put into perspective. Germany is on the way towards 5G revolution and a lot of industrial sectors are looking into getting involved. A variety of industries are involved in this, including the agricultural and foresting industries to name a few of the odd bunch. As expected, high technology companies are also involved, such as car makers Audi, BMW, Volkswagen and Mercedes, telecommunication companies such as NTT DATA, Corning Servicers etc. By implementing private 5G networks into a business environment, benefits are achieved that surpass Wi-Fi in its functional principle. The main benefit is somewhat obvious, with 5G speed, coverage, bandwidth and lower latency come improved by default. Because of this, 5G implemented in a high technology manufacturing plants such as those of Volkswagen or Lufthansa would introduce significant improvements in data transfer speeds but also security and reliability. This means that these companies increase their potential production capacity, higher product quality and shorter dispatch periods. Source: Telecoms.com Editor’s note: Hey there reader!
