Colt, Icade, ADVA, Airspan Networks, Athonet, Accedian and Tibco Join Forces on French Private 5G Pilot
Colt Technology Services, Icade, ADVA, Airspan Networks, Athonet, Accedian and Tibco announced the launch of a private 5G enterprise connectivity pilot. The incubation project is one of the first to test end-to-end private 5G in real estate using disaggregated architecture.
The consortium will provide private 5G networks to the PB5 La Défense building in Paris, enabling the exploration of varied use cases for the co-working space environment managed by Imagin’Office, an Icade subsidiary. This field lab ecosystem will test 5G use cases, including creating immersive experiences for the future workplace for a variety of industries.
Coordinated by Colt, the pilot represents an important step for enterprise connectivity, understanding and unlocking the benefits of 5G for business verticals such as real estate, construction, retail and healthcare.
Airspan, as the exclusive Open Radio Access Network (RAN) provider, will provide the radio
units (RUs), 5G modems and software, key parts of its end-to-end Open RAN solutions portfolio.
Athonet will provide its Griffone 5G-SA mobile core.
ADVA will provide the underlying infrastructure components, including hosting of virtual functions.
Accedian will provide performance monitoring and analytics solutions to assure the digital experience of the 5G service. To deliver the performance 5G promises requires synchronicity and cooperation across the end-to-end service, which all the members take seriously.
