With its versatility, flexibility, adaptability and high performance, 5G is a pioneering communications standard for industry and society. In particular, the development of private networks, often referred to as campus networks, is playing an increasingly important role here, as individual applications and usage requirements can be covered by an autonomous communication network. In this work, a private 5G network deployment including the setup of a 5G core network and radio access network is presented. With the proposed methods, a 5G core can be installed in less than 30 minutes. The evaluation of the proposed 5G system shows that 5G campus networks are capable of the demands for the different use cases of 5G. Furthermore, software tools for easy monitoring the health and status of the network are developed within this work.
