The minister without a portfolio in charge of technological development in the Government of Serbia, Nenad Popovic, visited the Swedish company Ericsson and talked to its experts about the 5G technology, which should be launched in Serbia by the end of the year.
It was said at the meeting that the 5G technology would be a turning point that will change the world, the industry and people’s lives, says a press release by Popovic’s cabinet.
– The fourth generation of mobile networks brought significant changes to telecommunications, and the 5G technology will transform the entire global society. The fifth generation will have a much larger capacity and allow for the transfer of a much larger amount of data in much less time than the existing networks – Popovic said.
He said that, with the 5G wireless technology, smart cities, driverless cars, the use of robots and many other innovations became a part of everyday life in the world.
Let us remind that the Government of Serbia adopted the Strategy of Development of New-Generation Networks in April. This strategy promotes the use of cloud computing and the Internet of Things, as well as the development of fifth-generation (5G) mobile systems.
