In-house mobile coverage of the new Merck research centre

Mobile coverage of Merck's new research centre

With the increasing degree of digitalisation, the requirements for mobile radio coverage in industry are also growing rapidly. To meet this demand, another industrial giant, Merck KGaA, recently turned to the FMBE to equip two of its new buildings at the Darmstadt site with a network operator-independent, modern in-house mobile network. These are part of the new research centre in which the science and technology company will work on innovations for the display and semiconductor industries.

In the period from June 2019 to April 2020, FMBE planned and implemented the provision of GSM, UMTS and LTE in SISO technology here, while complying with the client's high security requirements.
