The 5G tested on the territory

Paris La Défense has received permission to experiment with the 5G for a period of three years on its territory. Welcome to the future !

It's official. Following the call for candidatures launched by the ARCEP (Regulatory Authority Electronic Communications and Posts), Paris La Defense has the authorization of the use of the frequency bands 26Ghz for a period of 3 years maximum, and to experiment with new uses made possible by the 5G. An approach that is part of the partnership between Paris La Défense and Efficacity.

The 5G to "live life large" !

Described as a quantum leap in technology, the fifth generation of mobile communications is proving to be a major strategic issue for Paris La Defense. Marie-Célie Guillaume, General Director of Paris La Defense, explains its utility : "It will allow to experiment uses previously unpublished, and to invite the actors of the innovation, startups as major groups, to take advantage of this opportunity to make the slab a real field of experimentation."

This experiment is also an opportunity for Paris La Defense to control the conditions of deployment of this new technology on the territory. In effect, the institution wishes to test the feasibility of a new model is not underpinned by the deployment of antennas by telephone operators, but by an operator-neutral marketing of the access key in hand to the latter.

See you in 2020 for the first tests !
