As part of a collaboration with Ericsson, Deutsche Telekom has launched a new 5G campus network, expanding its portfolio. The German telecommunications company claims that the new offering, powered by Ericsson Private 5G portfolio, is based on a local 5G infrastructure and also allows the company to provide location-specific 5G mobile networks for companies based on 5G Standalone Technology (5G SA).
Speaking of the collaboration, Arun Bansal, Executive Vice President and Head of Market Area Europe & Latin America at Ericsson said: "Deutsche Telekom and Ericsson share a long-standing partnership in innovation, technology and services. Together, we offer secure, reliable and high-performance network solutions tailored to the specific business needs of our customers.”
Hagen Rickmann, Managing Director Business Customers at Telekom Deutschland, said: "Together with Ericsson, we help business customers in every industry to increase their productivity and exploit their full potential using 5G standalone technology."
5G Campus Network Private to be launched in Germany under the name “Campus-Netz Private”
Deutsche Telekom has already been offering campus network solutions for enterprises since the beginning of 2019 and by now operates more than ten of such local networks based on 5G non-standalone technology or LTE across Germany.
With the new fully private 5G SA Campus network solution, the company is expanding its business customer offering with the next development stage of 5G. The new product is being launched in Germany from now on under the name “Campus-Netz Private” – and is also offered to business customers in further European countries. For interested customers, mobile Campus 5G SA test systems are available to test their own use cases on-site.
