Ericsson, Tele2, and Rostelecom deployed a pilot 5G network at a the Digital Industry of Industrial Russia (CIPR) conference on September 2020. This pilot 5G service allowed the health of the visitors of the conference to be remotely monitored. The network was able to do temperature checks, checks for usage of masks & other personal protective equipment, and checks on social distancing. This conference and demo was an important step for 5G network service in Russia and the future of 5G for the healthcare profession & hospitals.
“Ericsson is actively involved in the development of new technologies in Russia. At our 5G Innovation Center in Moscow, we, together with operators and device manufacturers, pilot and adapt advanced products and solutions, as well as study promising scenarios for using 5G technologies in the Russian market. Ericsson's global expertise and extensive experience in launching 5G networks in different countries will contribute to the most cost-effective and efficient deployment of fifth generation networks in Russia.” said Sebastian Tolstoy, President of Ericsson Russia.
