Hannes Ametsreiter: Cologne has a very good mobile language and broadband supply - Vodafone reaches 99.9 percent of Cologne households. Of 374 mobile locations 45 are already equipped with 5G technology, eleven are even a gigabit capable. Ten 5g locations are already 5g + locations. By 2023, 75 5G extensions are planned.

5g, 5g +, these are a little nibulous concepts for the layman. What is behind it?

The first provider does not use Vodafone with 5G expansion exclusively on the extension of existing LTE networks, but builds a completely independent 5G infrastructure. Mobile experts talk about "5G standalone" or from the full 5G network. We give the most modern mobile technology available in Europe a simple name: and ie 5g +. That is, the previous 5G has taken advantage of the LTE network. This "support wheel" is stored with 5G +. 5g + is a real mobile phone core network. Our 5G + network we started only a month ago for everyone. Now we take the first 5G + mobile phone small cells with gigabit bandwidth. The special feature: You are installed in specially designed street lamps and add so inconspicuous to the Cologne cityscape. The first 5g + street lamps across Europe are located in the heart of the center of Cologne in the immediate vicinity of the busy places on the hay market and on the cathedral plate.

What does this look like in Cologne?

Vodafone has equipped the two road lamps with own mobile technology - including the antennas, the active technology and cable guides. The technique for Germany's most modern 5G network is housed in the lantern base of the nine meter high lanterns, the antennas are mounted six meters above the ground. Glass fiber lines are connected to the landline. The electricity for the street lamp supplies the Rhine energy. The antennas have a range of up to 400 meters and offer a speed of up to a gigabit in the 3.5 GHz band of the 5g + network.

The built-in antennas are small radio cells that complement the actual base stations of mobile networks. You can not replace a mobile location on a roof or mast, but ensure additional capacity in smaller areas within the mobile phone cell or increase the range. It is especially useful where many people are in confined space.

What do you need 5G +?

The full 5G is above all a "Gamechanger" for our industry. With 5G + data is transported in real time - as fast as the human nervous system can react and four times faster than with previous mobile technologies. But even for consumers, the real-time network plays a particularly important role: for networked mobility services, for mobile augmented reality applications or for the social networks of tomorrow.

Is there any other advantages of your so-called 5G + network next to real-time communication?

5g + networks ten times more people and machines: per square kilometer up to one million devices. It saves electricity: up to 20 percent consumption less than previous networks, because the mobile phone only dials in a network.
