Entel Chile runs first remote ultrasound pilot on 5G network

Wednesday 19 June 2019 | 11:26 CET | News
Chilean telecommunications regulator Subtel announced that Entel conducted one of the first telemedicine pilots on a 5G network in the country after the government finally granted permission for trials earlier this year. Entel secured a 6-month permit to tests 5G on the 28GHz band, which it used to remotely control an ultrasound machine in a trial held at the Esteban Gumucio health centre in the La Granja district, the first test of its kind in Chile.
