G Reigns™, HTC’s 5G innovation subsidiary, has launched a partnership with iconec to power its new 5G Lab in Nuremburg, Germany, to demonstrate the benefits of private 5G networks for enterprise.
iconec’s new 5G Lab is a showcase for REIGN Core – a highly portable, high-speed, high-capacity and low latency private 5G network – with two main demonstrations on launch day. iconec will demo streaming PC VR experiences to wireless VR headsets – VIVE Focus 3 – over 5G with high-fidelity image and low latency. iconec will also demonstrate G Reign’s AI camera offering, which can be tuned for many different needs, from security through to quality control in manufacturing.
“We’re excited to partner with iconec and demonstrate how powerful and flexible Reign Core is. Easy-to-deploy and portable private 5G networks are especially important in Germany, which has taken the lead on private 5G networks. Every industry can benefit from running their own private 5G network and iconec’s 5G Lab will be a great way for them to see real proof.” said Raymond Pao, SVP Business Solutions at HTC VIVE.
“Announcing the partnership between G Reigns and iconec is a major milestone for iconec’s private 5G solutions offering. With G Reigns we are able to deploy commercial grade, highly flexible, Open-RAN based private 5G radio access to serve for a multitude of usecases.” Said Markus Wabner, director of iconec campusnetze. “This can be seen especially in the context of working with HTC Vive for VR-based scenarios in training, design, demonstration and preparation for different verticals, like eHealth, automotive, health & safety, construction and many more. With our partners, iconec can offer optimised solutions for any customer need we see.”
Reign Core is a customisable and versatile private 5G network, and is highly portable – built into a bespoke case which is the same size as a suitcase. Reign Core can provide a 5G network in as little as 30 minutes from set-up to deployment, and for larger spaces, multiple units can be networked to cover the area. As it’s built to Open RAN specs, each of its critical components can be swapped out quickly and easily to find the best bespoke solution.
