Orange Polska will build a second campus network in Poland after its success with the Łódź Special Economic Zone, operating in the 3.6 GHz target 5G band.
The operator says the network will be deployed in Ksawerów near Łódź, on a 6,000 square metre site of Miele’s domestic appliances plant.
The contract will last two years and the network will digitialise and automate the quality control process for manufactured products, as well as facilitate large-scale employee training programmes using virtual reality (VR).
The Ksawerów plant has been operating since autumn 2019 and currently employs 300 people. In March 2020, the first units of new model washing machines rolled off its production line.
As manufacturing processes develop, it is possible that the 5G network will be expanded, placing the Ksawerów plant among the most advanced facilities of its type in Europe.
