CTHINGS.CO, an innovator in edge IoT solutions, recently partnered up with Deutsche Telekom for a live demonstration of 5G Network Slicing and quality on-demand open APIs during the launch of the hubraum 5G Testing Lab in Kraków, Poland.
The demonstration featured Valmont’s Smart Lamp Pole, a cutting-edge urban infrastructure solution developed with CTHINGS.CO to enhance safety and security within smart cities. Leveraging the power of the standalone 5G Network in Deutsche Telekom’s hubraum incubator lab, CTHINGS.CO successfully illustrated the dynamic capabilities of network slicing to ensure the high-quality and latency of surveillance video streaming in real-time.
In a live demonstration, CTHINGS.CO utilised 5G Network Slicing and open APIs to request quality on demand for mission-critical surveillance video streaming in a congested environment. This innovative approach allows for precise adjustments in network parameters, ensuring optimal performance tailored to the use case’s requirements. The solution’s ability to adapt to the specific needs of surveillance applications demonstrates its potential to revolutionise safety and security measures within urban environments.
“The importance of 5G Network Slicing and open APIs in our portfolio of solutions cannot be overstated,” emphasised Arnold Wierzejski, CEO at CTHINGS.CO. “These technologies enable us to dynamically allocate network resources, ensuring critical applications receive the necessary quality and performance they demand.”
Video streaming is only one of many use cases for Quality on Demand APIs and 5G Network Slicing. The same principle is applied to applications that require ultra-low latency or extreme bandwidths, like autonomous vehicles, remote operations, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.
Valmont’s Smart Lamp Pole is one of many turnkey applications built upon Orchestra, the CTHINGS.CO’s flagship solution for edge computing and hybrid cloud orchestration. Orchestra offers agnostic Networking as a Service (NaaS) through multiple connectivity standards, including 5G. This powerful platform plays a pivotal role in enabling seamless integration and efficient management of edge computing and hybrid cloud solutions, facilitating enhanced performance and agility across a wide spectrum of applications within Smart Cities and Industry 4.0.
CTHINGS.CO is also making waves on the global stage as the only Polish startup participating in the CAMARA project led by the Linux Foundation. The CAMARA project aims to standardise telco APIs on a global scale, fostering interoperability and seamless integration of services in the telecommunications industry.
“The participation in the CAMARA project aligns with our commitment to driving industry standards and fostering collaboration in the telco space,” added Wierzejski. “Standardising APIs is a critical step towards realising the full potential of 5G, ensuring that innovative solutions can seamlessly integrate and deliver enhanced experiences to users.”
Deutsche Telekom’s 5G Testing Lab, part of the hubraum incubator program, offers an invaluable platform for companies like CTHINGS.CO to test and refine their solutions in a real-world, fully standalone 5G network environment.
“We open the doors to all companies and developers who want to base their advantage on the IT infrastructure provided by us. Collaborating with hubraum, young companies can get in touch with specific departments within Deutsche Telekom, which speeds up implementations, allows for product customisation to real market needs, and opens the door to new business opportunities,” adds Jerzy Grzesiak, the head of the hubraum team in Poland.
Previously involved in hubraum’s 5G Early Access program in Berlin, Germany, CTHINGS.CO is now bringing experience and expertise to the activities in Kraków. This collaboration paves the way for continued innovation and the creation of future-ready solutions for enterprises and municipalities.
