CampusOS aims to support the development of an ecosystem for 5G campus networks based on open and modular radio technologies and interoperable network components. This is intended to enable vendor independence and more competition and innovation in order to strengthen the digital sovereignty of companies in Germany.

Funded by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK)

Duration: January 2022 - December 2024

With CampusOS, Germany aims to secure as well as further expand its global pioneering role in the operation of 5G campus networks. The ecosystem will be supported in the form of a technology construction kit, for which a building block catalog will be created and provided with proposals for different operator models.

Thanks to network virtualization, supplemented by artificial intelligence and machine learning, end devices and radio access network (RAN) and core network (CORE) functionalities can thus be combined dynamically and in line with demand to create a modular and secure 5G campus network. To test the new ecosystem, the Fraunhofer Institutes HHI and FOKUS are setting up reference test fields in Berlin.
