Network slicing allows multiple types of usage to coexist in 5G network

The capabilities of 5G mobile demonstrated the latest field tests on the 5G-ConnectedMobility test track on the A9, demonstrating the streaming of FullHD video material to vehicles at high speeds and with multiple devices simultaneously. Since, in addition to data-intensive streaming, on-board vehicle communication must also be virtually fail-safe, the Ericsson experts used “network slicing” technology, i.e. the division of a physical network into several virtual slices with different network characteristics. The interaction of the two applications was tested with two tablet computers that were used for video streaming. In this way, the data load in the respective mobile phone cell was significantly increased.

5G-ConnectedMobility creates a dedicated network infrastructure and a real application environment on the “Digital Test Field Highway”, in particular to carry out tests in the areas of vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-infrastructure and digitalization of the railway infrastructure with 5G technology. The test track comprises a 30-kilometer section of the A9 motorway and the high-speed railway line between the Nuremberg-Feucht and Greding junctions in Bavaria. Members of the 5G ConnectedMobility project are Ericsson, the BMW Group, Deutsche Bahn, mobile phone providers Deutsche Telekom, Telefónica Deutschland and Vodafone, the 5G Lab Germany at the Technical University of Dresden, the Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt) and the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA). The Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) and the Bavarian Road Construction Administration (Autobahndirektion Nordbayern) support the project.
