IS-Wireless to support new research at the University of York

IS-Wireless, a leading provider of 5G solutions, announces the deployment of its Private 5G network at the University of York to support University research into new telecommunications technologies. This is another rollout in the UK by the Polish company.

IS-Wireless was selected by the University of York through a competitive process. The installation includes essential components of the 5G network including the Near-Real Time RIC, O-CU, and O-DU, along with strong support services. This network will be used by the University and its partners for two research projects.

The YO-RAN and REACH projects, led by the University, are investigating ways to make mobile networks more effective and more accessible to new providers, using Open RAN technology. The University will use the new 5G network to create and test its own xApps, which improve energy efficiency and control of the network and its components.

These two projects are an important part of telecommunications research and development. The Private 5G network provided by IS-Wireless will enable us to develop and test new solutions that will enhance Open RAN-based mobile communications worldwide.

said professor David Grace from the School of Physics, Engineering and Technology at the University of York.

We are excited to work with one of the world’s top universities and a member of the prestigious Russell Group. The IS-Wireless Private 5G network will be a great tool for research, supported by our experience from many European Union-level R&D projects

said Artur Chmielewski, Head of Sales at IS-Wireless.
