First European 5G NR video call using millimeter wave spectrum in Europe
In Rome, the first European 5G NR video call has been completed on the TIM network in the millimiter wave (mmWave) frequency band, in collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies and Ericsson.

The TIM 5G Innovation Hub in Rome is an area that aims to attract a whole ecosystem of companies, startups, R&D centers and other stakeholders interested in the digital evolution – positioning itself as a benchmark of excellence in Italy for the development and the trial of innovative services and systems based on the 5G technology.

The opening event involved other leading partners such as Nokia demonstrated a variety of innovative services, while device manufacturers such as Samsung, LG, Sony, Xiaomi and ZTE presented their 5G smartphone prototypes and systems for 5G Fixed Wireless Access services.

Mario Di Mauro, Chief Strategy, Innovation & Customer Experience Officer at TIM said: "When we started to define the strategy and the development plans for 5G, we immediately realized that such a massive challenge could not be faced without the support of a wide range of partners committed to the same goal. We therefore proposed Qualcomm Technologies set up a place where work on the new 5G services and every business idea could find a quick realization thanks to the support of leading international technology players, innovative partners and start-ups from the local and national ecosystem".
