Port of Hamburg Is Ready For 5G - Deutsche Telekom

Deutsche Telekom successfully tested 5G applications in a real environment together with the Hamburg Port Authority and Nokia. The focus of the project in the Port of Hamburg was on the new technology concept "Network Slicing". Under 5G, there will no longer be "one size fits all network" but multiple virtual networks running simultaneously on the same common infrastructure. The advantage: These networks, so-called slices, can have different characteristics tailored to meet the specific requirements of a particular application or user group. One example is a rapidly instantiated priority circuit for emergency services in the port area during a storm surge. The experience gained from the implementation of 5G Network Slicing in real-world test environments helps to validate and improve the existing concepts. They are incorporated into the ongoing architectural development work for the 5G standard.
Three use-cases with different network requirements were tested in the port: On the one hand, the partners installed sensors on three ships from the HPA subsidiary Flotte Hamburg GmbH & Co. KG. These sensors enable the real-time monitoring and analysis of motion and environmental data from large parts of the port area. Second example: The Port Road Management Center of the HPA remotely controls the traffic flows in the port of Hamburg via a traffic light connected to the mobile network. This should help, for example, to guide trucks faster and safer through the port area. The third example tests high bandwidth availability: With the help of the new standard, 3D information is transmitted to an augmented reality application. The 3D glasses allow maintenance teams on site - for example on a construction site - to call up additional information such as building data or receive remote interactive support from an expert.

The 5G test in the Port of Hamburg is part of the two-year research project "5G-MoNArch" (5G Mobile Network Architecture for diverse services, use cases, and applications in 5G and beyond). The goal of 5G-MoNArch is to implement concepts for 5G mobile communications architecture in practice. While the test field in Hamburg focuses on the integration of 5G into traffic and infrastructure control, a second test field of the project in Turin deals with multimedia applications. The European Union's Horizon 2020 research framework program is funding 5G-MoNArch as a Phase II project of the 5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership.
