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.

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
