      5G Know How

      5G Spotlight FAQ

      The core elements of the 5G mobile communications standard are the further development of the radio interface, also known as NR or New Radio, and the highly flexible core network. The basic core features of a 5G network are high data rate, low latency, possibility of virtualization, and high security and reliability. 5G campus networks are therefore the perfect solution for mobile communications wherever the requirements for performance, range, availability, mobility and security exceed the capabilities of existing (WLAN) networks.

      Open-RAN stands for Open Radio Access Networks, which improves the interoperability of mobile networks. By defining standards for open interfaces and separating hardware & software via a software-defined approach (SDR), networks independent of propretary technology can be created. This enables the overlapping use of white-box hardware and software solutions from different vendors. The new Open RAN standards aim to open the boundaries of the mobile market and minimize the restrictions for all users.

      Software Defined Radio/Network (SDR/SDN) refers to concepts for radio frequency transmitters and receivers based on programmable hardware and controlling software. It enables centrally controlled programming of network behavior via software applications and open APIs, and networks independent of proprietary technology emerge. When SDN and SDR and Open-RAN interact, network components can be controlled flexibly, hardware-independently and "future proof".

      Edge computing collects data directly where it is generated, rather than in a central data warehouse for data processing. Edge computing is thus particularly relevant for moving critical enterprise applications closer to data sources such as IoT devices or local edge servers to minimize latency.
      This enables powerful analytics because the data does not need to be transferred over a network to a cloud or data centers.

      We are an alternative provider for Open-RAN based 5G stand alone campus networks for the frequency band 3.7 -3.8 GHz provided by BNetzA and offer a stand alone 5G network for individual use with own sim cards. We are in phase 3GPP Release 16 to take full advantage of latency, positioning and URLLC. COCUS takes over full code ownership including bugfixing & features as well as German speaking support from our region.

      A 5G license involves specially allocated frequencies, each of which is issued for one property or building. These can be, for example, company premises, industrial parks, trade fair grounds or forestry areas. The 3.7 - 3.8 GHz frequency range is intended for private campus networks. The full 100 MHz bandwidth or parts thereof in 10 MHz increments can be requested. Once the frequency has been allocated, use must commence within 12 months. COCUS also provides support in applying for licenses and beyond.

      Network slicing means that the networks can be divided into many areas (slices) depending on the application. Each slice is optimized to provide the resources and network topology required for the particular service and traffic. Features such as speed, capacity, connectivity and network coverage are tailored to the requirements of individual use cases, but functional components can also be shared across different network slices.

      Private 5G campus networks allow industry to define their own security implementations. In addition, the high level of data security means that confidential data remains in-house and protected from third parties. In addition, the company's own private network can ensure wireless, seamless and ubiquitous connectivity, which is essential, especially for time-critical applications.
