5G: mobile networks of the next generation

The fifth-generation mobile network assumes a key position in the communica­tion landscape of the future. Autonomous driving, Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things, and the tactile Internet for wireless object control in real time require a quantum leap in efficiency, the scope of performance and the availability of mobile communication networks. The new 5G wireless communi­cation technology will be the basis for the digital infrastructure of the future. The in­dustry plans to deploy the first 5G-capable networks starting in 2020. In a consortium with manufacturers, network operators, users and research institutions – especially TU Berlin and Fraunhofer FOKUS – Fraunho­fer HHI will realize prototypes of the com­munication technology infrastructure for 5G early on, allowing it to be experienced in the 5G testbed of Berlin.

IC4F – Industrial Communication for Factories

IC4F addresses the required confluence of information and communications technology as well as automation for upcoming use cases in the scope of Industry 4.0, i.e., the Industrial Internet. In particular, IC4F aims to build a reference architecture for communication technologies and a modular technology toolkit for a reliable industry communication and computing infrastructure.
