The measure is designed to reduce the cost and time it takes to deploy 5G networks, the Nikkei reports. Mobile operators are expected to start testing 5G equipment on traffic signals in various cities by 31 March 2021, with a goal of completing the nationwide deployment of 5G base stations on traffic signals by 2023.
