The Technical University of Munich (TUM) is now conducting research on concrete applications via a 5G campus network set up by O2 Telefónica.

The highly prestigious University has commenced researching the use of 5G technology for industrial application in areas of "materials handling, material flow, logistics”. This is the first scientifically used 5G campus network in Munich.

The 5G campus network at TUM provides a closed, secure research and development environment without connection to the public mobile network. It delivers high-performance network coverage in the chair's own research and development labs. The aim of the Chair of Materials Handling Material Flow Logistics is to use the latest technology to explore the various functions and possibilities of 5G in the field of technical logistics and to test them in feasibility studies. The focus is particularly on the autonomation of robotics solutions in intralogistics and the collaboration of robots.

In addition to setting up and operating the 5G campus network, O2 Telefónica will also support the university with intensive engineering consulting. This type of collaboration will enable the chair to familiarise itself with 5G technology in the shortest possible time and thus pursue its research projects quickly.
