5G prototyping

5G is the next generation of communication networks designed to serve a Smart Digital Society. By delivering extreme broadband, ultra-robust low latency connectivity and massive Internet of Things networking, 5G will transform our lives, our businesses and our society. Working intensively with customers and industry partners, Deutsche Telekom is at the forefront of the development of the 5G standard that will redefine connectivity.

5G is driven by customer use cases – and will encompass three main classes of networks: Extreme Mobile Broadband for consumer digital services such as Immersive Media, Massive Machine-Type Communication for Internet of Things applications and Mission-Critical Machine-Type Communications providing – for example – low latency and reliability for industrial robotics.

Deutsche Telekom’s early direct engagement with application developers and other innovators in activities such as hubraum 5G Prototyping will ensure that operators and innovators will ultimately bring the best possible experience to our common customers when 5G networks are rolled out starting in 2020.

hubraum 5G Prototyping is an initiative seeking pioneers interested in developing ideas and applications based on future 5G technology and infrastructure provided by Deutsche Telekom in Europe. It’s a great opportunity to jump on to the fast-track of Deutsche Telekom’s 5G network innovation.
