Consulting for 5G Technologies

Boosting innovation and honing your competitive edge with 5G

Ultra-low latency, enormous transmission rates, global availability, scores of connected devices – 5G is certainly setting new standards. Applications can attain an unprecedented level of connectivity with 5G to connect objects and processes. This gives rise to new opportunities for enterprises across all industries to develop innovative products, systems and processes to secure their competitive edge.

What 5G can do for you and where it benefits you most


New applications and business models

Unprecedented applications and business models are surfacing in the wake of 5G. The great challenge is to identify new use cases and reimagine old ones, and then assess which 5G technologies can deliver real benefits for real-world applications.

Improved products and services

You can future-proof your offer by integrating 5G interfaces into your products and enriching your services with select 5G features. What matters, essentially, is finding the right approach and tackling the technological challenges of implementation and testing.

More flexible processes

There is vast potential to be tapped in 5G, especially for manufacturing processes. Remote-controlled applications and ultra-reliable wireless links to replace wireline connections open the door to more flexible processes in manufacturing and beyond.

One network for all

What will work best for you – the public network or a campus network with a dedicated 5G license? The challenge of having to choose the right 5G infrastructure is looming large for many organizations. We provide competent, independent support to help you make that decision.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to developing and executing a 5G strategy. This is why we piece together many small, proven steps to build a 5G rollout strategy tailored to your needs. Drawing on our experience in developing wireless communication systems and our knowledge of ongoing 5G standardization, we will map out this path with you. The concepts we draft for you turn the spotlight on the best technological options for the given application.

As an applied research institute, we are also at your side when it comes time to put that plan into practice. With the benefit of our 5G research and development activities, we have the tools to adapt and prototype technologies for specific solutions, and test them under real-world conditions in the target application.
