The MAVERIC project develops a comprehensive system for pop-up mobile campus networks for 5G and beyond, focusing on autonomy, robustness and support for in-network computing.

A reliable, comprehensive and powerful network is the basis for digitization. 5G, the fifth generation of the global mobile communications standard, now enables new possibilities for production sites and facilities, logistics systems and other relevant economic areas by wireless, high-capacity and secure networking. In order to support the utilization of the innovative communication technology, the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Action (BMWK) pushes the joint development and testing of application-related solutions for private 5G networks by a funding program for participants from business and research.

The flagship project “Campus OS” started in the beginning of 2022 and is supplemented by six satellite projects focusing on industry-specific solutions for 5G campus networks in different fields of application. In this context, Xantaro Deutschland, the NVL Group and the two universities of applied sciences of Augsburg and Emden/Leer form the consortium of project “MAVERIC” for the development of a middleware solution for the automated utilization of edge resources in campus networks. The official project start was April 1st, 2022; the joint kick-off meeting took place on April 7th in Hamburg.
