Whether disaster relief, sports event or festival: 5g can be used to set up a temporary network to connect many devices and provide a high bandwidth for multimedia services. In order to test such a setup, researchers from Fraunhofer FOKUS conducted a field trial as part of the EU project 5GENESIS with partners from IHP, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Karlstad University, NetApp and Simula Research Laboratory at Festival of Lights 2019 in Berlin. The components of a portable 5G network and their interaction are explained in the following video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBSs96DgWf0
5GENESIS partner COSMOTE has successfully tested its Pilot 5G NSA network, consisting of 5G Nokia Airscale BTS attached to Athonet vEPC Core. COSMOTE R&D Airscale System initial configuration uses 2×2 MIMO radio units and 100MHz bandwidth.
The first commercial 5G mobile phones (Samsung A90 5G with Snapdragon 855) have arrived and successfully tested with 5GENESIS Athens 5G platform at NCSR_Demokritos.
