MTS and Samsung Demonstrate Real-Life 5G Scenarios in St. Petersburg


MTS and Samsung Electronics used 5G network and devices to demonstrate a series of 5G scenarios including HD video calls, ultra-low latency video games and high-definition video streaming.

The demonstration zone was set up in the exhibition hall of the Popov Central Museum of Radio Communications, one of the oldest museums of science and technology in St. Petersburg. Guests and journalists were given the chance to make HD video calls and play a football simulation video game on Samsung's 5G prototype tablets. 5G provides an unprecedented mobile videogame user experience by dramatically reducing the response rate between devices. Demonstrations also included streaming of 4K ultra-high definition video.

This trials utilized Samsung's 5G end-to-end solutions including 5G routers (CPE, Customer Premise Equipment) and prototype tablets, 5G radio access unit, virtualized RAN and virtualized core network.

Pavel Korotin, Director of St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region, MTS, commented, "Our goal is to adapt new technologies to commercial use in cooperation with industry-leading vendors. Today's trial with Samsung Electronics demonstrates that 5G is not an academic theory, but presents a nearly ready set of practical network solutions that will allow customers to manage a broad range of everyday tasks and open new opportunities that are unachievable on 4G."

Samsung and MTS began their cooperation in 2014 with the launch of LTE networks in the Northwestern Federal District of Russia, including St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region. In the second half of 2017, Samsung and MTS signed an agreement to expand and upgrade MTS' network with LTE-Advanced Pro and IoT features. The companies will also continue their collaboration on 5G.
