Deutsche Telekom sets up 5G power grid test

Thursday 9 February 2017 | 10:05 CET | News
Deutsche Telekom, in conjunction with Ericsson and distribution network Stromnetz Berlin, have established the 5Grid project to test the application of 5G technology in the power grid. The project, run from Adlershof in Berlin, is seeking to demonstrate how 5G can benefit the energy sector, according to a statement from the Telekom. In one example, a solar energy plant and a chiller were integrated into Ericsson's IoT platform. Data from each element of the grid was then recorded and processed on site, rather than being routed back to a centralised database.
