5G Network

The SWIFt testbed offers access on a commercial basis to a state-of-the art private 5G network internally and externally on a Non-Stand Alone (NSA) and Stand Alone (SA) basis.

NSA features:

  • 5G NR on Band 78
  • LTE anchor point on band 3
  • NB-IoT Service
  • Nokia NDAC 4G/5G core

SA Features:

  • 5G NR on Band 78 3.6-3.8GHz for indoor

  • ORAN architecture (CD and DU deployment)
  • Druid 5G Core

LoRaWAN IOT Network

The SWIFt testbed includes low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) capabilities together with other cutting edge connectivity technologies. More specifically, the network protocol that was provisioned by Digital Catapult is LoRaWAN, which is designed to connect wirelessly resource-constrained devices to the internet over very long
distances at very low power.
