"Explore 5G features and performance in a controlled, real environment."

5GTN is the world’s widest 5G Test Network with open access. The complete 5G test system – from infrastructure to applications and services – allows unique testing possibilities from prototype devices to complete solutions in a controlled environment.

The wide 5GTN network consists of several sites and is well-connected with national and worldwide test environments. The 5G Test Network features support the use of 5G devices, several frequency bands, orchestration functionalities, and system testing tools.

5GTN invites you to

  • utilise state-of-the-art equipment and data for your innovations,

  • test your applications, technology or concepts over the live network, and

  • bring your innovative ideas to the open development platform.

Furthermore, research projects can be established to develop specific key 5G technology components and services for your purposes.

With 5GTN services, you will get easy access to the 5GTN mobile network via SIM cards. Access is provided to all functions and interfaces. To facilitate your trials, you can loan state-of-the-art test devices. Latest technology prototypes are at your disposal along with in-depth analytics for a maximal trial experience and outcomes.

Planning and realisation of the trial sessions as well as the evaluation of the outcomes are supported by clear online instructions and dedicated personal service made available during the trial sessions.
