Telecom Italia (TIM) this week showcased the first millimetere wave (mmWave) 5G mobile test device and live demonstration of 5G services in San Marino, ahead of the launch of the service in the country.

Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem, the new device is expected to be commercially available on the market in 2019. 

The live demos of the first 5G services showcased in San Marino using the 3.5 GHz and 26 GHz frequencies, include;

 - Smart City services, with Smart Parking and Gas & Water Metering applications, built by Olivetti.

 - Public Security services - a system of cameras constantly connected to police stations, will guarantee video surveillance during public events;

 - Services for Industry 4.0

 - Digital tourism services  - using Virtual Reality solutions, allow to explore remotely local sites of artistic and cultural interest.

At the same time, TIM is working to upgrade its mobile network in collaboration with Nokia, and the launch of the first next generation services.

Cesare Pisani, CEO, TIM San Marino
By the end of the summer the first mobile sites will be adapted to the new 5G radio interface, coinciding with the progressive introduction of small cells, small and low power antennas which, connected by fibre optic cable and located in various areas of the country, will provide performance levels unattainable with current technologies, and with minimum environmental impact.

Stefano Siragusa, Chief Wholesales, Infrastrcuture, Network and Systems Officer, TIM
By enabling new generation services in San Marino, we are looking forward to the future, paying particular attention to the development of innovative services related to public safety, transport, tourism and Industry 4.0 which enable the Smart City model.
