Why Dresden

Actually, it isn’t surprising that namely Dresden will become a platform for Vodafone studies and developments. There are over 2000 microelectronics companies of different types and sizes located in Dresden and near the city. So, this fact explains rather clearly why this place is called Silicon Saxony.

Already in 1994, Vodafone started cooperation with the University of Technology in Dresden and now the telecommunication company is ready to expand its ties with this German city.

Functions of a new research center in Dresden

The new center will conduct studies in several spheres. First of all, experts will work on the development of the mobile network of the 6th generation – 6G.

Secondly, a lot of attention will be paid to the research of various use cases for 5G that Vodafone brought to Germany in 2019. Among the possible applications of the technology, we can already mention smart mobility, smart chemistry, farming and others. These fields have been defined as they are considered to be strategically important for Germany and a wider region.

Another important sphere of research will be the concept of Open RAN (Open Radio Access Network) that will ensure more flexibility and efficiency in using mobile network elements produced by different manufacturers.

Plans of Vodafone

Speaking about the creation of their new research center, the CEO of Vodafone Germany, Hannes Ametsreiter, explained: “We want to develop 6G in Dresden from Germany for the world. Our signal for this country: The future of digitization is being devised in Germany”.

It is expected that the developments presented by the experts of the newly created center will greatly contribute to the world’s innovation progress in the sphere of mobile technologies, including the launch of 6G.
