Friday 21 September 2018 | 15:12 CET | News
Vodafone Spain has announced plans to install one of the country's first 5G nodes at the La Nave innovation space in the south of Madrid. In a statement, the operator said it's collaborating with Huawei to set up the network, which will allow companies to test 5G prototypes in a real world environment. Vodafone also launched a hackathon at the third edition of the #Barbac0d1ng event in La Nave, inviting coders to develop software applications for the operator's book-sized Open CrowdCell unit. The winners of the hackathon will be announced at an event in La Nave in February 2019.
