Improving 5G Campus Networks with Artificial Intelligence
It is expected that in the future the capacities of WLAN will no longer be sufficient to allow sensors and robots to communicate in smart factories. 5G campus networks can be used as an alternative.
The KICK project aimed to simplify and improve those networks using methods of artificial intelligence. More specifically, AI was utilized to enable robust and ongoing configuration, optimization, and error handling in 5G networks, mainly focused on Industry 4.0 environments with high requirements regarding reliability, latency, and security. To meet those demands, hybrid approaches were developed. These approaches were based on and tested with real communication and production data from an existing factory.
The core goals of the project were the following:
- Development of a holistic model for 5G campus networks with an AI-supported network management system
- Development of an AI-solution for network management including selection and optimization of AI-algorithms for automated change management, monitoring, optimization and knowledge transfer to new situations
- Evaluation and demonstration of the solution in an existing production environment
