Deutsche Telekom subsidiary T-Mobile Polska lays the foundation for commercial 5G expansion in Poland with the initial deployment of 5G base stations.
The project will start with four base stations based entirely on the future 5G standard 5G New Radio (5G NR). First, the center of the capital Warsaw will be covered, then T-Mobile will gradually expand the 5G network to other cities.
T-Mobile Polska has distributed the first devices that enable access to the 5G network to selected business customers and partners. This enables partners to test and further develop their own business solutions and products in the real 5G network today, so that they can later offer them on the mass market.
The 5G network in the center of Warsaw uses commercial 5G technology from Huawei and will be integrated into the live network infrastructure. This means it interacts with T-Mobile's existing 4G technology. This enables connections and field tests of future 5G services under real conditions. The antennas currently use the 3.5 GHz spectrum as part of a test license.
