TIM Brasil and Huawei have signed a collaboration agreement to develop a pilot 5G City – powered by 5G network — in the capital of Parana, Curitiba.
TIM and Huawei are working together to build the world’s largest Massive MIMO (M-MIMO) network. M-MIMO is a technology that extends the signal transmission range using a large number of antennas and helps deliver data with higher quality. For the 5G City project, the M-MIMO network can maximize the 5G transmission speed with ultra-low latency. This is one of the unique features of 5G networks.
“This project is one of the steps for TIM to expand 5G services and become one of the major operators in the world. TIM is working with Huawei to further develop 5G in Brazil to launch the 5G City project,” Leonardo Capdeville, CTIO of TIM Brasil, said in a news statement.
The 5G City project involves implementing wide 5G coverage for the city. In addition to monitoring the network, this project aims to improve user experience by developing devices and solutions to provide high-quality services but with lower energy consumption and cost.
“Our aim is to help TIM lead the industry in the development of 5G networks. Huawei and TIM are both pursuing innovation and success,” Cao Ming, Vice President of Huawei Wireless Product Line said in a news statement.
