Representatives of Hrvatski Telekom and FER have signed a Letter of Intent for launching the Campus Network project , which will offer the possibility of working on the latest communication technologies to students, startups, and the whole industry . Given that the technology sector is one of the fastest-growing in the world, academia will be allowed to work on industrial development projects based on Industry 4.0, Smart Factory, Industrial Internet of Things (iIoT), and 5G . HT plans to invest around HRK 2 million in the development of the project.
The Campus Network is a private mobile network that will cover the faculty lab with a dedicated 4G and 5G network. The lab will be at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, and FER is open for collaboration with other interested faculties . The next step is to include other cities such as Rijeka, Split, and Osijek. The solutions that will be developed will also be applicable in the public 4G and 5G network of Hrvatski Telekom.
