Development of the Russian base station for 5G

BTlabs participates in a working group that develops technical requirements for the prototype of 5G base station compatible with 3GPP Release 15.

The working group unites Russian telecom and R&D companies, including RPC Istok, BTlabs, NIITS, Radio Gigabit and Skolkovo, that form a cooperation to bring to life the first Russian base station for 5th generation (5G) mobile networks.

The deployment of 5G networks worldwide is scheduled in 2020 after the final release of the ITU technical requirements IMT-2020.
