Mobile TeleSystems (MTS) has announced the launch of Russia’s first large-scale 5G pilot user network, utilising the 4.9GHz frequency band, in 14 popular locations in Moscow, where MTS subscribers using compatible smartphones will be able to connect to unlimited 5G internet at speeds up to 1.5Gbps with minimal network latency.
Russia’s Mobile TeleSystems (MTS) has launched pilot 5G mmWave network zones at the Tomsk State University of Control Systems & Radioelectronics (TUSUR) and at the nearby production plant of Russian telecoms equipment manufacturer Mikran.
Mobile TeleSystems (MTS), partnered Ericsson to test dynamic redistribution of frequencies between 4G LTE and 5G NR networks, demonstrating methods for low-cost deployment of wide 5G coverage utilising existing LTE infrastructure. The tests carried out at MTS’ offices in Ufa used a commercial 5G non-standalone (NSA) 1800MHz/2100MHz base station with Ericsson Radio System equipment utilising the Instant Ericsson Spectrum […]
MTS, which launched its Moscow 5G mmWave pilot zone soon after Tele2, announced hitting speeds of 2.1Gbps in partnership with Nokia, using a pre-production Samsung S10 5G smartphone featuring Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 platform and X50 modem. MTS is also partnering Huawei in its 5G piloting programme.
Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., announced on August 24 its work with the Department for Information Technologies of Moscow, Russian mobile operators, equipment and software vendors.
