All about the project region and partners

Project region

The project RettungsNetz-5G is located in the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region. Named after the rivers Rhine and Neckar, which flow together near Mannheim, the metropolitan region is located in the border triangle of Baden-Württemberg, Rheinland-Pfalz and Hessen. The major cities of Heidelberg, Mannheim and Ludwigshafen am Rhein are located in this region.

The project partners who must be involved in the practical implementation on site are also located in the project region. These primarily include the University Hospital Mannheim, the Integrated Control Center Mannheim, and the German Red Cross Mannheim District Association. The exact project area covers the catchment area of the University Hospital Mannheim. Here, the potential of 5G technology can be tested by ensuring 5G coverage.
