Deutsche Telekom has announced the launch of a new 5G campus network product for business customers based on 5G Standalone (5G SA) technology from Ericsson. The new offering is based on a local 5G infrastructure that is exclusively available for the customer’s digital applications, supplying fast data transmission rates, maximum network capacity and highly reliable connectivity with low latency. It operates completely separately from the public mobile network: all components of the infrastructure from the antennas to the standalone core network to the network server are located on the customer’s premises. The 5G SA network operates on frequencies in the 3.7GHz to 3.8GHz range that are specifically allocated to the enterprise.
Deutsche Telekom has been offering campus network solutions for enterprises since the beginning of 2019 and currently operates more than ten 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.
