Telekom Slovenije, the Slovenian provider of the most advanced ICT solutions, and Iskratel, the leading European solution provider for the digital transformation of industries, have launched a cooperation in the development of 5G networking solutions. The aim is to deploy 4G/5G hybrid public-private networks that are of particular interest to the smart industry. In order to best serve the needs of their customers, the partners will first undertake an analysis of market needs, perform equipment interoperability testing and investigate the spectrum planning aspects.
Telekom Slovenije’s Member of the Management Board, responsible for technology, Matjaž Beričič, commented: “5G is an evolution of the 4G network, ushering new capabilities and becoming a key factor in the digitalisation of economies for this decade. 5G will deliver significantly faster, more reliable and more stable mobile data transfer, with significantly higher speeds, delivered at lower latency. These shorter delays will be very important especially for the digitalisation of the whole economy, for healthcare, industry, etc. 5G brings new opportunities for the development of innovative high value-added ICT solutions and as such it will support advanced multimedia services, secure development of the Internet of Things, digitalisation of business verticals and much more. At Telekom Slovenije, we are designing our smart 5G infrastructure in such a way that we can provide, on top of communication services, numerous virtual dedicated networks for individual business verticals, and one such project is the development with Iskratel.”
Primož Kučič, the Director of B2B at Telekom Slovenije added: “Telekom Slovenije is also developing other verticals and we are open for cooperation with select partners like Iskratel, who bring the ideas, solutions and demands that can be solved by modern technology.”
