TransPacket has developed the FUSION networking technology for Ethernet enabling Time Sensitive Networking for 5G, preserving synchronization, guaranteed network service in combination with best effort packet transport for access networks. 

Through this cooperation, SimulaMet will get access to 100 Gbit/s and 10Gbit versions of FUSION networking IP implemented using state of the art Xilinx Zynq FPGAs for use in the fronthaul network in the 5G lab. 

“I am pleased to announce that we are now working with a startup like TransPacket and get access to innovative 5G network technologies in our new laboratory at SimulaMet. Working with creative startup companies is part of our strategy to combine research and industrial development.” says Dr. Kyrre Lekve, chairman of SimulaMet.

“We are happy to demonstrate the TransPacket FUSION technology in the SimulMet Interoperability Lab, ensuring fixed latency in Ethernet networks and enabling Cloud RAN functionality for 5G with performance guarantees”, says Nina Bøyum, CEO of TransPacket. 

SMIL will provide an experimental environment for our researchers and collaborators to explore new innovations and perform high-impact research for industry, mobile operators and service providers. SimulaMet is also contributing to the OsloMet curriculum in advanced communication topics and plans to engage OsloMet student resources in experimental work related to emerging 5G services.
