5G-IANA will utilize 2 different 5G SA test networks. One in City of Ulm (Germany) operated by NOKIA where all UCs will be demonstrated and one in Ljubljana (Slovenia) operated by TS where UC7-SACBT will be demonstrated.
NOKIA operates an LTE/5G test network in Ulm, Germany. The on-air testbed consists of 5 sites – with 3 radio cells each – which covers an area of more the 100 km², including a motorway (A8), a highway (B10), a high-speed train line (S21) and major parts of the city of Ulm.
TELEKOM SLOVENIJE will provide a dedicated 5G infrastructure located at its premises in Ljubljana for the purpose of the 5G-IANA project’s demonstrations and will serve also as a future 5G environment for TS. The infrastructure consists of a cloud and virtualisation environment, network connectivity, 4G – LTE radio access network (CA, Nb-IoT, VoLTE,) as well as 5G radio access network and 5G ready core network based on EPC extensions.
