5G Private networks for industry 4.0

Airspan and siticom deliver 5G Stand Alone Industry 4.0 Private Networks in Germany.


Airspan Networks and siticom GmbH have teamed up to provide 5G wireless connectivity for diverse Industry 4.0 verticals in Germany, including manufacturing, automotive, healthcare, and agriculture. The collaboration focuses on delivering a future-proof Industry 4.0 solution incorporating Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC), and Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLCC).


The surge in demand for 5G technology in the enterprise market follows the awarding of dedicated 5G spectrum licenses by the German Federal Regulator Bundesnetzagentur (BNetzA). These licenses enable the establishment of locally managed, reliable, secure, and highly scalable private networks.


5G Non-Public Networks (NPN) are anticipated to bring increased high performance, coverage, and precise distributed timing and synchronization for industrial applications, as well as real-time proximity positioning and tracking.


Airspan's 5G OpenRANGE solutions offer a complete end-to-end virtualized RAN solution for the NPN market, adhering to O-RAN alliance guidelines and supporting the latest 3GPP releases. This positions Airspan as a leading vendor in the O-RAN ecosystem, providing a full 5G Standalone vRAN portfolio. The solution's small and smart form factor radios, coupled with cloud-native software based on containers, cater perfectly to the versatility of NPN use cases. Features like network slicing, 5G QoS, and positioning can be rapidly adopted, showcasing the agility of scaling up/down resources.


siticom chose Airspan's open RAN solution for its robustness, flexibility, and high performance, providing a complete 5G SA RAN solution. The solution is virtualized, automated, and has a small footprint, making it ideal for meeting campus network requirements. With Airspan's OpenRANGE software solution, siticom can address specific campus network needs, utilizing COTS edge computing hardware, Kubernetes, and VMWare to accommodate various approaches. The portfolio is complemented by a range of 5G radios designed for indoor and outdoor use, specifically tailored for campus networks.
