G5 Expansion in Langenfeld:
Vodafone doubled 5G sites
Langenfeld There are already three 5G transmission points in Langenfeld. Now the company is expanding its activities. LTE dead zones will also be closed in the entire Meatman area.
(Above) Telecom operator Vodafone is doubling its 5G activities in Langenfeld. Instead of the previous three locations, there will be six in the future. The expansion is part of the “5G infrastructure project for the Mittmann region”. In addition to Ratingen and Langenfeld, the new broadband technology will be installed at seven other Vodafone sites in the region by mid-2022: in Hahn-Wolfrath and Hilden.
The medium-term goal is to connect all residents in the area to a 5G network, if possible. In Langenfeld, among others, the 5G antenna is activated at the Mühlenweg 42 in Berghausen. Vodafone spokesperson Tobias Crozosa explains that the sites are mostly close together in order to cover entire regions with the technology. Existing infrastructure i.e. existing transmitter mast sites are used so that no new buildings need to be constructed. So cities don’t always get involved in expansion plans, says Tobias Krazaso.
According to Vodafone, a total of 151 mobile radio stations in the region will be gradually upgraded by installing additional 5G technology there – for example on masts, watchtowers, church towers and on the roofs of city halls, office buildings and apartment buildings. This should happen station by station over the next few years.
By mid-2022, Vodafone will also realize nine more LTE construction projects in the region and commission a new LTE station in Langenfeld to eliminate existing dead spots and connect residents in the coverage area to the LTE network for the first time.
In addition, additional LTE antennas will be installed at seven LTE stations located in Wülfrath, Ratingen (3x), Mettmann and Monheim.
