Moscow city teams up with domestic and foreign suppliers to test 5G

28 October 2020

5G testing has already begun in Moscow. A dedicated demo center has just been launched in the Smart City pavilion at VDNH — a permanent exhibition center — for testing and supporting urban services based on this technology. These tests concern essentially the transport industry, medicine, urban safety and education.

The city authorities have partnered with MTS, a major mobile operator; Ericsson, which will supply telecommunication equipment; and tech conglomerate Rostec, which will also supply 5G equipment in the future.

Big technology companies, start-ups, research institutes and industry-specific universities will have access to 5G networks for testing solutions. Patent and technical integrity of solutions and equipment will be respected, the authorities say.
