5G Wireless Moves Closer to Reality

21 April 2017

Just announced: a collaboration between Hewlett Packard Enterprise and the 5G Lab Germany, a consortium of researchers focused on delivering key technologies to enable 5G wireless networks.

5G wireless network technology is intended to adapt to consumer behavior in real time, with latency improvements enabling a level of automation and control not possible with today's 4G wireless networks. The bandwidth improvements of 5G technology also are expected to dramatically increase the amount of network processing required in order to deliver new and existing applications.

The HPE/5G Lab collaboration will allow research on the impacts of 5G wireless networks on the telecommunications and mobile industries.

“We are collaborating with the 5G Lab to develop high performance compute systems at the edge, which can consume and analyze data instantaneously to address the needs for the next generation of automation and mobile applications, particularly smart city and autonomous vehicle use cases," says Dr. Tom Bradicich, vice president and general manager, servers, converged edge and IoT systems for Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

“Without addressing 5G network needs, the advances in automation for mobile applications would not be possible for the telecommunications industry,” adds Dr. Gerhardt Fettweis, Vodafone Chair Professor, Technische Universiät of Dresden. “HPE and 5G Lab Germany are working to deliver the necessary network upgrades for the next-generation of mobility, enabling the pathway towards the Tactile Internet.”
