Hutchison Drei Austria has partnered with ZTE to develop and deploy Austria’s first operational 5G network, available to selected business clients in Linz.
The companies have activated a total of 20 5G sites in Linz, creating the first ever continuous 5G coverage throughout an Austrian city. Hutchinson Drei Austria is aiming for full 5G coverage of the city and other regions throughout Austria.
As part of 5G launch, selected business clients of Hutchison Drei Austria have received ZTE E2E 5G solutions, in order to exclusively test-drive the ultra-fast internet.
Due to its stability, high performance and extremely low latency 5G is particularly interesting for large-scale business applications. The technology can further enable whole new fields of businesses and services from virtual reality and self-driving cars to robotic surgery, says ZTE. Moreover, 5G positively impacts the associated network eco-system such as cloud-services.
