Infrastructure and available equipment

29 oct. 2021

The Orange 5G Labs from Bucharest and Iasi include 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 Labs 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 from the Bucharest Orange 5G Lab
  • 5G Standalone Virtualized User Plane Function – local component from the Iasi Orange 5G Lab that processes the traffic from the 5G infrastructure users and enables the connection to the core network from the Bucharest Orange 5G Lab
  • 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
