5G playground – 5G portable node
To extend a network capacity to a specific location, one of the most attractive use cases is to make the network portable or mobile, enabling private local communication as well as efficient backhauling to a central location or to edge nodes. This was the target of a field trial in Frankfurt/Oder IHP, on November 30, 2021. The event was an attempt from 5GENESIS project (Berlin Platform) to prove that a portable network can be installed and configured at the specific use case location in a matter of minutes and remain in use for a specific duration of time of the use case (such as for fairs or for construction sites). Some related posts in social media (LinkedIn1, LinkedIn2) and a video on YouTube are available as well.
