The required frequencies were requested from the Federal Network Agency and subsequently assigned to RWTH Aachen University. University management then transferred the frequency administration to the IT Center, making it the de facto internal 5G regulatory body at RWTH Aachen University.
Future plans include the requisition of further frequencies by the IT Center for additional areas as the need arises. These will then be used for specific buildings or for green areas.
The current 5G network infrastructure on Campus Melaten includes indoor mobile networks (for e.g. machine facilities, logistics centers, demo factories), as well as outdoor mobile networks (e.g. for mobile applications, robotics and production chains across multiple locations).
