Infrastructure and available equipment

29 oct. 2021

The Orange 5G Lab includes technologies that will be available in the commercial network in the future, but in the present can only be tested in a lab environment.

We are constantly developing the equipment, platforms and devices that you can access in the 5G Lab so that you will always be working on the newest technology.

Network infrastructure

  • 5G Standalone Private Mobile Radio - the core component of the 5G infrastructure
  • 5G New Radio - the radio component of the 5G infrastructure
  • Open RAN and Open CORE components based on the separation of the software from the hardware, allowing the virtualization of the radio or core network and offer the capability to run the system on CoTS (Commercial-of-the-Shelf) equipment and on open interfaces
  • Edge Computing plays a key role as a technology that allows to reduce the distance between users (applications) and services (data) and facilitates guaranteed latency and transmission throughput, as they are solicited by services and applications
