    Barcelona-based Cellnex Telecom has launched a partnership with the automotive branch of SEGULA Technologies, a global engineering group that specialises in service solutions for industrial sectors.

    Deployed through Cellnex’s business unit EDZCOM, its edge business unit, the collaboration opens the door into the automotive sector for the tower and infrastructure company.

    Cellnex will deploy a private 5G Network at the SEGULA’s’s German test centre located in Rodgau-Dudenhofen, using dedicated spectrum for low latency, security and data confidentiality.

    The German telecom regulator, BNetzA, allocated spectrum for industries’ use as an adjunct to the 5G spectrum auction process for operators.

    “Cellnex’s private 5G network established onsite [at] our proving ground in Rodgau-Dudenhofen is the ideal option that provides the opportunity to develop autonomous driving and V2X functionality in a real environment that is secure and reliable.

    “Adding future connectivity capabilities is essential in an industry that is becoming fully digital”, said Dr Holger Jené, CEO of SEGULA Technologies in Germany.

    Oscar Pallarols, Global Commercial Director at Cellnex Telecom, said, “Vehicles are becoming the new smartphones and in response, car manufacturers will require new skill sets to stay competitive.

    “Working…with SEGULA Technologies is a win for both companies as SEGULA Technologies operates globally and is an expert in vehicle engineering and testing, while Cellnex Telecom is a specialist in 5G, providing high-performance connectivity layers.”

    Mikko Uusitalo, Global Director of Mission Critical & Private Networks at Cellnex Telecom, added, “As this collaboration revolves around Automotive Industry, we can deploy successful innovations many times over. This is scalable and key to our business, which in the end benefits the whole ecosystem – Cellnex, SEGULA Technologies and customers.”
