Abstract (Day 1 and 2)

5G Testbeds in Germany

The number of 5G testbeds is constantly growing. However, a comprehensive overview and structured information about these platforms are currently not available. In this talk, we present an activity of the project Information Platform for 5G (IP45G). This accompanying research project for the BMBF technology programs 5G Industrial Internet and 5G Tactile Internet has the task of monitoring and providing consolidated information about important technological, economic, and regulative 5G developments. As a current activity IP45G is not only identify existing 5G testbeds, it is collaboratively collecting structured information about the testbeds. These information include metadata about the ownership, the topical focus and application area, available technologies and equipment, as well as access options and general business model of the testbed. By documenting the 5G landscape in Germany, the IP45G projects intends to help the different stakeholders finding the right test platform for their purpose.
