Phoenix Contact, Quectel and Ericsson jointly develop the first industrial 5G router for private networks
SHANGHAI, June 28, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

Phoenix Contact, Quectel and Ericsson have worked together to develop and 
deploy the first industrial 5G router for local industrial applications in a 
private 5G network. 

With the help of the newly developed 5G Router, industrial applications, such 
as machines, controls and other equipment, can now be connected to a private 5G 
network and thus be orchestrated in their resource usage, priority and 
behavior. They therefore offer a decisive advantage compared to previous mobile 
radio solutions, which can only use all - mostly license-free - radio bands 
with a best effort principle and which have to accept performance losses in 
equal measure when the radio spectrum is heavily occupied. 

To achieve this, all three companies brought their strengths together: Phoenix 
Contact as the first choice supplier of WLAN, Bluetooth and mobile radio 
routers for industrial applications, Quectel as the leading global supplier of 
cellular and GNSS modules and Ericsson supporting the product development as a 
network supplier and a leading force of the 5G technology development. By 
starting to interact at an early stage, the three companies have been able to 
rapidly develop a solution that provides industrial-grade performance over 
private 5G networks. The collaboration between Quectel, Phoenix Contact and 
Ericsson has seen extensive interoperability testing at the Ericsson lab to 
ensure the reliable commercial performance of the 5G router. The experience 
made is highly important for Ericsson following the strategic approach offering 
5G solutions jointly with mobile network operators towards the industry. In 
addition, all three companies cooperated closely to enable Industry 4.0 
applications with this 5G standalone private network.
