Wednesday 3 February 2021 | 14:37 CET | News
Telefonica has joined forces with Cisco to carry out a trial of 5G network slicing technology at the University of Vigo in Galicia. The partners will set up a lab using the university's facilities with three separate 'slices' offering differentiated services: low latency, high bandwidth and emergencies. The aim is to demonstrate the flexibility of 5G networks when it comes to dedicating specific capacities to different services and clients, such as customers enjoying ultra-high definition content while guaranteeing the mobile network's resources in the event of an emergency in the area.
