dc.description.abstract5G is being deployed widely in commercial and private networks because it promises higher throughput and less delays compared to the other mobile and Wi-Fi networks’ performance. This thesis is a case study for comparison of the 5G and Wi-Fi networks performance in the testbed underground mining network of Sandvik mine. The motivation for this research is to determine actual delays and packet losses in the underground mining network in a 5G standalone (SA) network deployment, and as well as Wi-fi4 deployment. Furthermore, the research seeks to benchmark and compare the network performance of both technologies and draw conclusions regarding whether 5G meets the anticipated performance standards and has any advantage for underground mining operations. The case study is about benchmarking the TCP and UDP data throughput, and latency in the mobility scenario in the underground mining testbed. The different TCP, UDP throughput and latency results in the case study indicates that Wi-fi has more variability in the bit rate over time and the data rate seems to be less consistent for TCP and with higher packet losses for UDP. Though 5G had a higher Avg RTT compared to Wi-fi but 5G seems to have more consistent network performance with lower standard deviation (Sdev) value and stable packet delivery with zero packet loss in the latency test results. Therefore, TCP, UDP data throughput and latency in mobility tests confirm that 5G in underground Sandvik mine is likely to be a reliable network with better performance.en
