MTS, Huawei launch 5G zone at VDNKh exhibition centre in Moscow

Thursday 12 September 2019 | 17:12 CET | News

Russian mobile operator MTS has launched a 5G zone at the VDNKh exhibition centre in Moscow. Equipped by Huawei and functioning on the 28 GHz and 4.9 GHz frequency bands, the network will test Smart City technology, designed to improve security and urban services management, and help develop Moscow’s transport system. The agreement between MTS and Huawei was signed in June during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

5G is speeding up the development of self-driving vehicles in Moscow together with other future technologies, Eduard Lysenko, the head of the city’s Department of Information Technology, said. Moscow is looking into the implementation of tele-medicine and IoT technologies in city services which require a secure and fast connection. 

While the super-fast network is currently available at only one of the pavilions in the VDNKh complex, the pilot zone is expected to expand and cover almost the all of the VDNKh area by 2020.

Moscow’s first 5G zone was launched earlier this month and covers Tverskaya Street in the downtown city. Ericsson provided equipment for the network, which is run by mobile operator Tele2 Russia. By the end of this year, Moscow is expected to have four pilot zones, each operated by one of Russia’s four major telecom providers.
