Orange has been running what it described as the first industrial trial of an indoor 5G network in a French factory. In operation since March, the deployment is located at Le Vaudreuil, where Schneider Electric has built a facility to showcase industry 4.0 processes. The two partners, which unveiled their collaboration in April 2019, have been working on a private, virtualised network using 5G trial spectrum, consisting of five antennas covering close to 2,000 square meters of production space with download speeds beyond 1 Gbps.
