Mobile operator bets on 5G tech

15 October 2019

By the end of next year MTS, one of Russia’s leading mobile operators, has plans to invest an estimated $1.6m in start-ups that develop 5G tech based solutions. A business incubator is being set up in Moscow to pursue the goal.

The mobile operator is interested in a range of cloud based services in remote gaming, new video streaming formats, Internet of Things solutions, data storage, and some others.

The best projects in the incubator may expect to first receive grant funding for advanced R&D and then investments from MTS. The operator may elect to purchase technology it likes, or hire a start-up team to accomplish tasks.
