The Belarusian national telecommunications company Beltelecom says it has successfully completed testing of the 5G network in Belarus.
The new technology was tested in two experimental zones: the Veliky Kamen Industrial Park and the Kopyl district, where Beltelecom tested the CIS’ first 5G network operating in the 700MHz frequency range. The technology is supposed to address digital inequality between urban areas and the countryside.
Beltelecom Director General Yuri Petruchenya expects the new technology to help develop the Internet of Things, unmanned transportation, the smart city concept, and to also interest members of the general public, who will actively use 5G capabilities.
5G technology is already being used in the Veliky Kamen Industrial Park to test unmanned transportation solutions and a smart intersection. The system can recognise pedestrians and control traffic lights thanks to a video analytics module and video camera.
