MTS took another step forward in bringing the future to life by hosting a two-way, long-distance holographic video call between the Company’s 5G pilot zones in Moscow and St. Petersburg.

The laser-based video conference, which took place during Russian Internet Week 2019, connected viewers at Moscow’s World Trade Center with visitors to a theater in Kronstadt, one of St. Petersburg’s most famous suburbs. Headline speakers on the call included top Russian thought leaders and tech bloggers, who engaged in a thought-provoking discussion around the potential for new 5G-based innovations to accelerate the transition to a more immersive, digital-enhanced reality. Huawei provided innovative connectivity and advanced IT solutions to enable this demonstration.

Today we are excited to witness firsthand the promising future of digital innovation and fifth-generation connectivity, which will not only radically transform our daily lives, but give rise to fundamentally new products, services, and business models. With significantly higher speeds and lower latency, 5G will provide the foundation for immersive interactive experiences that bring together the physical and digital worlds. If 4G gave us video streaming and smartphone apps, then 5G will bring to life virtual and augmented reality and the Internet of Things.
