Vodafone Spain testing 4G drones ahead of 5G rollout

Monday 26 November 2018 | 09:05 CET | News
Vodafone Spain has carried out a trial of 4G drones in Moia (Catalonia) to establish an aerial coverage model ahead of the launch of 5G networks. The pilot conducted at the BCN Drone Centre was designed to lay the foundations to guarantee the future connectivity of drones equipped with 5G SIMs, as well as their geolocation and remote control in real time using the Vodafone network, which would enable them to land in restricted areas such as airports or aerodromes, said the company.
