Node-H and our hardware partners offer turnkey solutions for 5G SA private networks. Enterprise cells based on Node-H 4G technology have been in used in 4G private networks in lthe Netherlands for several years. Private networks use lightly-licensed spectrum to allow Enterprises to deploy networks using their own equipement, with the option to interwork with the operator networks. The light licensing approach was pioneered in the Netherlands, and this was followed in a different form in the USA using CBRS.
European countries countries such as Germany and the UK are now adopting the same concept using mid-band spectrum for Private 5G networks. Other countries in Europe are following the same approach. They are making lightly licensed spectrum available in order to deploy 5G SA Private networks which can operate independently of the incumbent operators. This is going to be repeated worldwide.
Node-H is part of the BMWK's CampusOS project which brings together respresentatives from operators, large and small enterprises, system integrators, universities and research institutions to perfect the 5G SA Campus Network. Node-H is the key RAN development specialist within CampusOS. Within the CampusOS core project, Node-H is interacting with specialists in Test, Core and Management Systems, to ensure the highest degree of interoperability. With then core team, and in wider Satellite projects, Node-H RAN is being used to deploy a robust RAN in 5G Campus Networks to prove and test the benefits of 5G in a variety of enterprise and industrial use cases.
5G SA Enterprise small cells for use in the mid-band ranges of in bands band n78, n48 or n77 are available from our hardware partners now. These are low-cost cells based on the latest SoC technology from small cells specialists like Qualcomm. Contact Node-H for more details, and look for further announcements.
