The Chinese telecom giant and Russia’s mobile operator MTS has jointly launched a 5G pilot scheme in Moscow and Kronshtadt to deliver the super-fast network in the entire city.
The agreement between the two parties was signed during Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Russia in June when he met his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin and took part in the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, reported RT.
This network became operational at VDNKh (All-Russian Exhibition Center), one of the major attractions in the Russian capital, on Thursday. Also, it functions on the 28GHz and 4.9GHz frequency bands.
According to MTS, this new network is designed to improve security and urban services management, as well as helping to develop the transport system.
The new network is now available only around one pavilion of the historical complex, by 2020 the pilot zone is expected to expand and cover almost the whole VDNKH area.
