26.11.2020 Fiber-optic connection of the first 5G mobile transmission towers on the Campus Melaten

FiberNetworkSolutions implements the connection to the RWTH Aachen University fiber optic network

Together with Elektro Ohligschläger GbR, FiberNetworkSolutions (owner Stefan Sutter) has installed the fiber optic connections to several locations of the first 5G mobile transmission towers in Aachen in recent weeks. This infrastructure, which is part of the 5G-Industry Campus Europe research project, will be used to validate the usability of the 5G mobile communications standard for production environments in real-life settings at Aachen's Campus Melaten over the next few years. To this end, several transmission masts will span an area of 1 km².

In order to achieve the targeted data rates of up to 10 Gbit/s with a latency of less than 1 ms over this 5G network, a corresponding wired infrastructure is required up to the antenna. Fiber optic cables are of course the first choice here. Where no corresponding fiber optic infrastructure was yet available, the project was supported, among other things, with the final installation (installation, splicing work and acceptance measurements OTDR/FiberInspection) of the corresponding FTTA (Fiber-to-the-Antenna) connections.
