Deutsche Telekom to build 5G network in three German ports

The operator has been selected by Eurogate Terminals to build the networks.

Deutsche Telekom will install 5G networks at Eurogate ports in Hamburg, Bremerhaven and Wilhelmshaven. The operator says these networks will help improve mobile coverage at the sites.

Telekom’s campus networks will cover a total area of 5.6 million square meters at the three container terminals. It will both expand existing on-site mobile communications systems and install new 5G radio sites.

The sites will include a private network for critical communications, as well as a public network for inter-terminal logistics and non-critical functions. For the private networks, Deutsche Telekom will be using Eurogate’s existing campus network spectrum rights in the 3.7-3.8 GHz band. The public portion will use the operator’s existing infrastructure and spectrum holdings.

The project is funded in part by the German government. The German Federal Ministry of Digital Affairs and Transport (BMDV) is providing €3.7 million as part of its ‘Digital Test Fields in Ports’ directive, and a further €2.9 million will be provided by industrial test provider TÜV Rheinland.
