Pre-commercial trials of 5G technology using spectrum in the 3.6 GHz-3.8 GHz range - Area Milano
In March 2017, the Italian Ministry of Economic Development (MISE) started a procedure for the acquisition of project proposals related to the realization of pre-commercial trail programs in the frequency spectrum of 3.6 – 3.8 Ghz. Accordingly, many 5G trial programs have been launched in Italy involving several operators, private companies, research centers, and public institutions.
In this pre-commercial trial program, Vodafone Italia S.p.A. started the development of 5G in the Metropolitan area of Milan. Here, the Telematics Lab, member of CNIT, is involved in the research activities related to the Fixed Wireless Access use case.
