STOCKHOLM, November 24. /TASS/. Russia is quickly progressing to 5G mobile communication technologies, Vice President of Sweden’s Ericsson Ulf Pehrsson told TASS on Thursday.
"First 5G commercial systems will appear in 2020 but certain elements of this standard will go live much earlier. Developments in Russia reflect what is taking place in the world. The country is quickly moving to 5G," he said.
"Our clients prioritize what is called "the Internet of Things." We are interacting with major communication operators and individual clients to find solutions on this topic," Pehrsson added.
Ericsson is cooperating with Russia’s MTS. Testing of 5G technology in 5 GHz range was initiated this year. The parties planned to set up a 5G testing zone in 15 GHz range in the next year.
