Telefónica has announced the initial deployment of 5G capabilities in the cities of Segovia and Talavera de la Reina, in partnership with Nokia and Ericsson.

Under its 5G Technological Cities project, Telefónica said it will convert the two cities into 5G living laboratories over the next three years (2018-2020).

The deployment of the new 5G network and the development of use cases will enable the citizens of Segovia and Talavera de la Reina to benefit from the improvements to the network, as it will be deployed throughout the urban centres.

Telefónica has a partnership with Nokia (in Segovia) and Ericsson (in Talavera de la Reina) as its technological partners for the 5G network deployment project. 

The project will also include the work performed jointly with SEAT and FICOSA on connected car applications. These applications connect vehicles to the road infrastructure and citizens, in order to improve safety and traffic management.

Tourist services with virtual and augmented reality, the automation and digitization of industrial processes, the massification of the Internet of Things, fixed radio access in rural environments, remote management of critical processes, telemedicine, mobile gaming and remote control of drones are some of the potential use cases enabled by the arrival of 5G, said Telefonica.

Luis Miguel Gilperez, CEO, Telefonica Espana
With the 5G Technological Cities project, Telefónica is turning the technology of the future into reality and providing a constant service for people. This is why we will perform the technological deployment and use cases in parallel, so that we will serve people with the new technologies, one of Telefónica’s clear objectives.
