A consortium of eight companies led by Cellnex Telecom and Grupo MASMOVIL will roll out a 5G pilot (‘Piloto 5G Catalunya’) in the Barcelona metropolitan area to test and develop innovative solutions for the education, industry, commerce, tourism, transport, safety and emergency management sectors. The project will launch in September and run until December 2022.
IESE and telecom infrastructure operator Cellnex have announced the setup of a 5G mobile network at the school’s Barcelona campus to test 5G wireless prototypes. Together, they are using it to explore how the technology can help enhance educational experiences. The prototypes incorporate 5G, edge computing and augmented reality technologies.
