Ericsson and MUGLER enter private networks partnership

A broad range of industries in Germany are set to benefit from a new 5G private network partnership between Ericsson and European telco network provider and system integrator MUGLER, building upon a successful collaboration in private campus networks. The new private networks will be powered by Ericsson Private 5G, providing secure and agile connectivity to support the adoption, use and scaling of new and emerging data-driven technologies to further empower Germany’s digital transformation.

Ericsson Private 5G enables advanced operations through automation, flexibility and intelligent connectivity. Using a single-server 5G dedicated network based on a dual mode core facilitates both LTE and 5G Standalone (SA) simultaneously. Tailored to Industry 4.0 and supporting a full range of 4G and 5G devices, Ericsson Private 5G can optimise and simplify operations through cloud-based network management, with zero downtime upgrades, high performance and installation within hours.

“Private 5G can be easily integrated into existing company networks, with sensitive data able to be transmitted confidently and securely within the company centrally or between different locations,” said Burkhard Zimmermann, Account Director for KAM Service Providers, Ericsson. “This meets important industry requirements for the integration of business-critical applications into private campus networks, such as privacy, high data rates, low latencies, maximum reliability and availability as well as flexible expandability.

“These network capabilities have the potential to digitally transform society by radically overhauling numerous sectors, including industry, health care, retail, smart cities, railways, transportation, ports and energy sectors,” Zimmermann said. Potential use cases include the use of digital twins to optimise manufacturing operations, such as tracking assets and real-time automation to improve productivity; more efficient quality inspections via augmented reality; and smart surveillance drones to increase worker safety, particularly in potentially hazardous environments such as ports and mines.

“This important partnership with Ericsson will expand the ecosystem for the entire life cycle of private campus networks,” said Dr Markus Dod, MUGLER’s Director of Local Networks Department. “This solution perfectly complements business needs, making it possible to provide end customers with a broad portfolio of product solutions and services as an end-to-end complete package. The partner approach with Ericsson allows solutions to be offered quickly and extremely flexibly: as a self-administered campus network or as a managed service.”
