Vodafone Business and Porsche Engineering create Europe’s first 5G hybrid mobile private network

To provide customers with better infrastructure to build and test intelligent and autonomous vehicles, Vodafone Business has teamed up with Porsche to create Europe’s first hybrid 5G mobile private network.

For the development of intelligent and connected vehicles, Porsche Engineering and Vodafone Business have developed Europe’s first 5G hybrid mobile private network (MPN) at Nardò Technical Centre (NTC) in southern Italy. The Porsche-owned and -operated proving ground now provides its clients with a real-time communication network that promises shorter delays, high bandwidth, enhanced security and dependability, and faster deployment times. It is claimed to enable globally networked collaboration and effective data-driven engineering.
