Our Goal

Welcome to the website of the research group 5G at the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences.

It is the goal of the research group ROADMAP-5G to investigate the requirements and opportunities that arise due to the introduction of the new generation of mobile networks – 5G. This implies the fields of industry, municipality and commerce. We focus on an optimal deployment of the 5G technology, on the individual opportunities of the Mobile Edge Cloud and on the identification of Network Slicing Parameters. The research group is an independent link between the “Verticals” (the users) and the commercial 5G network operators.

The R&D activities can be split up into the areas software and networking. The expertise and close cooperation between these areas inside the research group enable the execution of complex technical projects.

The following pages contain further information on our team and our research focus.


If you look at the communication needs of the “verticals”, i.e. companies from the transport and logistics, hospital, automotive, industrial production, energy production/energy networks, as well as municipal facilities etc. sectors, they have completely different requirements for a communication system than private users who want to use the web quickly and cheaply with their smartphones (and occasionally still make phone calls). In the 5G world, a number of so-called “network slices” are defined, each with different benefits.


The team of the research group is very focused. Experts in the fields of radio network planning, network management and software development/computer science form the core group, supported by scientific employees who have knowledge of (data) traffic theory on the one hand and of measurement techniques in communication technology on the other.
