Our 5G testbed

Our two-year participation in Europe’s 5G-MoNArch project was both challenging and an exciting opportunity to examine 5G concepts – in particular, network slicing – into practise. Until you visit a port, it’s difficult to appreciate the scale of operations and challenges that need to be overcome to deliver robust connectivity.This short video from the Port of Hamburg gives a taste of the environment in which we worked.

Expert and independent advice for port authorities

In 2019, Real Wireless was instrumental in delivering the results of the two-year European Commission funded project, 5G-MoNArch, tasked with looking at how best to transform the connected infrastructure of the Port of Hamburg in Germany.

Seaports are playing catch-up with the large transport & logistics players in exploring the benefits of smart connectivity.

Wireless can offer connectivity for complex infrastructure as efficiently and effectively as fibre but potentially at much lower cost. Pulling cable across large buildings and port environments can be time consuming, disruptive and expensive. Tethering autonomous cranes will reduce flexibility in the port. Wireless is an obvious choice for enhanced port connectivity. But it also makes new demands, 

These demands necessitate new network architectures enabling delivery of ultra-low latency and improved coverage and a cloud solution using technology optimised for edge computing.

Real Wireless has extensive experience in conducting wide-ranging technical assessments of a wide-range of industrial use cases, as well as determining the financial implications and business case arguments for the deployment of wireless infrastructure. With a suite of tools and processes to assess and validate all elements of an installation, Real Wireless is the world’s leading independent wireless advisory firm.

With experience spanning major stadia, connected shopping malls and transport systems, as well as providing techno-economic support to regulators, vendors and operators, Real Wireless is recognised as trusted and independent advisor with a peerless international track record.

C-RAN – all still up in the air?

C-RAN seems to have been a long time coming. I first started exploring the potential of C-RAN back in 2007. Since then there’s been a great deal of industry talk and thousands of pages of standards describing dozens of C-RAN architectures. And I’m still waiting. Cloud...

Can Satcoms at sea improve operations on land?

We write a lot about the needs of industry and how LTE, Wi-Fi, DAS and 5G, incorporated into a private network, could improve logistics and security and underpin just-in-time operations for airports, sea-ports, factories, stadiums, malls or local government. But what...
