KPN launches 5G Field Lab at Helmond auto campus

Wednesday 14 November 2018 | 11:25 CET | News
The tests are being carried out on the A270 highway between Helmond and Eindhoven and on the nearby Automotive Campus. Latency on the mobile network has been greatly reduced thanks to advanced technologies. One of these technologies is Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC), where the processing of the data takes place at a location close to the tests. As a result, the response time of the network is many times faster, a characteristic that is crucial when vehicles communicate via a mobile network.
