6WIND selected for 5G Campus project by French & German Governments
Paris, France and Santa Clara, CA, February 10, 2022 – 6WIND, a leading High Performance and Secure Virtualized Networking Software company is delighted to announce that they are part of a novel Franco-German project, aimed at developing 5G private networks and applications.
Germany and France have pledged €17.7 million in support of four carefully selected cross-border cooperative projects. The objective is to prove the value of state-of-the-art 5G wireless ultra-broadband technology in specific private-network use cases; in industry, commercial areas, campuses and hospitals.
This initiative will enrich Europe’s technology and telecommunications ecosystem, help transform the economies of the EU through thoughtful application and further development of state-of-the-art technologies, and contribute towards European digital sovereignty.
6WIND participates in the 5G for Business Parks (5G4BP) project – also referred to as “5G Campus”. This project will establish an open-architecture 5G network solution for business parks and under-served communities which have not been covered by fifth-generation broadband public mobile communications networks.
6WIND contributes to the 5G4BP consortium by leveraging its tried and tested, high-performance, high-efficiency and highly secure Virtual Service Router (VSR) solution suite. 6WIND will provide end-to-end routing and security capabilities that align with the Open RAN requirements and empower the 5G private network solution.
6WIND VSR solutions can be deployed on ubiquitous COTS servers, in private and public clouds. It caters for vPE, vCSR, vSecGW, vCG-NAT and other essential networking functions that are the backbone of any modern telecommunication network – fixed or mobile.
6WIND’s partners in the 5G4BP consortium are: Highstreet Technologies (GER), Xelera Technologies (GER), Alsatis (FR), AW2S (FR) and Spectronite (FR).
Julien Dahan, CEO, 6WIND commented: “We are very proud to be selected for this project by the French and German governments, based on our expertise in the market. We have a proven set of VSR solutions, embracing openness and the cloud-native architecture that will be critical in delivering this 5G Campus project in collaboration with the other selected partners. This further proves the lead 6WIND has within the virtualized networking software space and we are confident this 5G Campus project will be a huge success!”
