Private French innovation centre b<>com is showcasing a private 5G network product called Dome and highlighting how it can be applied in the broadcast industry.
Ludovic Noblet, Director Of Technology, Standards, IP and Licensing at b<>com, noted that the product can be deployed to create a “5G connectivity bubble”, with potential for deployment in a number of vertical sectors.
Dome is expected to become commercially available at the end of 2022.
“We think this is a gamechanger,” Noblet added, noting that it opens new markets for verticals such as broadcast, industry 4.0, security, e-health, entertainment and more.
Nicolas Dallery, Sales and Marketing Director at b<>com, said France is the first target market, followed by countries such as Germany and the UK.
However, as Dallery pointed out, the key to deployment will be the ability of providers to obtain private 5G licences. “It’s the only missing piece,” he observed.
France has already opened up frequencies in certain spectrum bands for industrial use cases, including the 3.8GHz-4.0GHz, 2.6GHz and 26GHz bands. Germany also offers local licences in the 3.7GHz/3.8GHz and 26GHz bands for vertical use cases.
