This year, the 1.4 million square meter Deutsche Messe exhibition site in Hanover, Germany will become 5G-ready. Deutsche Messe, which organizes international capital goods trade shows, has obtained a frequency allocation in the 3.7-3.8 GHz range from the Bundesnetzagentur (Federal Network Agency) and will set up one of the largest 5G zones in Europe, spanning 30 halls and buildings as well as the entire open-air ground. Siemens is playing a very specific role in this achievement. As one of the key exhibitors at the HANNOVER MESSE, Siemens is setting up a private 5G campus network with a focus on industrial use in one of the exhibition halls in Hanover. The network can be used by exhibitors during trade shows and, outside of trade show times, can be used by companies for tests and field trials.
