Since the telecommunications sector provides the technologies necessary for digital transformation and is closely linked with every industry in Germany, it is an industry of particular importance regarding the challenges of tomorrow. One of these challenges is the extension of the fibre optic network, which is being driven forward by politics and the economy to promote 5G standards and enable faster, more effective communications. On the one hand, this requires high bandwidths. On the other hand, it is necessary to comprehensively connect rural areas using frequencies below one gigahertz. Other challenges comprise the transition from ISDN to VoIP solutions and the implementation of information and communication structures with high bandwidths and a short latency period to ensure a successful Internet of Things.
