Deutsche Telekom Unveils Groundbreaking 5G mmWave Technology for Industrial Revolution

In an innovative leap forward, Deutsche Telekom has marked a significant milestone in the technological landscape, specifically within the industrial sector. The telecommunications giant has embarked on deploying the cutting-edge 5G mmWave (millimeter wave) frequencies, operating at 26 GHz. This strategic move is targeted towards enhancing services for industrial applications, signifying a major progression from traditional connectivity methods to more advanced, efficient solutions. This initiative is not just a step towards the future; it’s a leap into a new era of industrial connectivity.

The debut of this technology follows a successful series of trials, propelling Deutsche Telekom to the forefront of 5G deployment in industrial settings. This transition towards 5G mmWave technology underscores a significant commercial offering to industrial customers, heralding a new chapter in Deutsche Telekom’s service delivery.

In a collaborative venture, the pioneering deployment was put through its paces at the Ger4tech Mechatronik Center, located within the esteemed Werner-von-Siemens Centre for Industry and Science in Berlin. Here, the spotlight shone on the seamless networking of autonomous industrial machines and robots. These were linked via a sophisticated router capable of supporting 5G standalone at 3.7 GHz alongside the mmWave spectrum. The successful execution of this technology was made possible with the support from Telit Cinterion, a trailblazer in global IoT solutions, signifying a key partnership in this technological endeavour.

The essence of 5G mmWave lies in its capacity to handle extensive data volumes in real-time, a critical requirement for applications such as 5G campus networks, manufacturing processes, and the operation of autonomous vehicles. The technology boasts impressively low latency times, clocking in at three to four milliseconds round trip time (RTT), coupled with data rates surpassing 4 gigabits per second for downloads and 2 gigabits for uploads. Such performance metrics open a realm of possibilities for data-intensive applications within the manufacturing industry, promising a revolution in how industrial processes are managed and executed.

Deutsche Telekom emphasized the paramount importance of this technology for the industrial sector in today’s digital age. “In an era where artificial intelligence plays a crucial role, it’s imperative for our industrial clients to have the ability to upload and analytically process data from machinery in real-time,” the telecom leader stated. This capability not only enhances operational efficiency but also paves the way for advanced analytical interventions, further driving the industrial sector into the future.

The 5G standalone campus network at the Werner-von-Siemens Centre stands as a testament to technological independence, operating distinctly from Telekom’s public mobile network. This entire setup, encompassing everything from antennas and active system technology to the core network, is powered by Ericsson. This collaboration not only showcases the synergy between leading tech companies but also reinforces the commitment to driving innovation and advancing digital transformation in industrial settings.

This monumental deployment by Deutsche Telekom reflects a broader move towards embracing 5G technology in industrial applications. It not only underscores the potential of mmWave technology in transforming the industrial sector but also sets a benchmark for future deployments across the globe. As we stand on the brink of a new era in industrial innovation, the role of technologies like 5G mmWave becomes increasingly pivotal, promising a smarter, more efficient, and highly connected future for industries worldwide.
