The 5th generation of wireless technology is predicted to hit the market by 2020, bringing a major change in how we communicate and live. In anticipation, Orange opened its own 5G Lab, an open innovation facility at the heart of the Orange Gardens corporate campus in Chatillon, France. The Orange 5G Lab is the ideal place to innovate with partners eager to explore how 5G can benefit their products or services.
The purpose of the Orange 5G Lab is to foster the 5G ecosystem and to stimulate the development of products and services through early adoption of 5G technology.
To do so, we plan to work in-house and with outside partners to identify the most promising use cases and create new mass-market consumer services. These services may be marketed and delivered by Orange directly, or by third parties using Orange 5G assets and enablers.
We provide a fully functional 5G infrastructure resulting from our partnership with Huawei, including the following features:
5G capabilities will bring faster throughputs, lower latency or ultra-dense connectivity. 5G aims at addressing usage requirements in three markets:
- enhanced mobile broadband,
- fixed wireless access
- specialized services such as critical or massive IoT.
Below are 3 of many key use cases where these 5G enablers make all the difference.
