T-Mobile continues to expand its 5G networks in the Czech Republic. He launched another 270 transmitters
Over the past month, T-Mobile more than doubled the coverage of the Czech Republic with the 5G network signal, increasing the number of transmitters with 5G support by 270 to the current more than 600. Fast internet via the 5G network is now available to 10.4% of the Czech population. By the end of this year, T-Mobile's coverage will more than double to more than 25% of the population. The current map of the coverage of the Czech Republic with the 5G signal in the T-Mobile network is available on the website www.t-mobile.cz/mapapokryti.

5G mobile networks provide transmission speeds of up to 1 Gb / s, excel with a minimum latency of 1 ms and availability in the order of 99.999%. In addition to extremely low latency, the capacity of 5G networks, which allows the connection of up to 1 million devices over an area of 1 km2, is especially important for industrial digitization and automation applications. T-Mobile operates 5G public networks on the frequencies 1,800 and 2,100 MHz and, as the first of the Czech operators, also on the frequency 700 MHz, obtained in the last auction of frequency bands. In its 5G infrastructure, T-Mobile combines Ericsson and Huawei technologies, and in further development it will focus primarily on campus networks of university workplaces and state-of-the-art network solutions for Industry 4.0.
"The benefits of 5G networks are currently of particular interest to companies that have embarked on Industry 4.0, as well as to research and development on campus. That's why, when deploying 5G mobile technologies, we focus on campus private mobile networks that enable scientists, students and companies to develop the concepts of smart factories of the future and digitized manufacturing. Of course, we do not forget our other customers, who are mainly interested in the possibility of unlimited data transfers in the mobile network. We have prepared new tariffs for them since September, for which they will never reach the limit of transferred data, "says Tomáš Verner, ICT Solutions Development Manager at T-Mobile Czech Republic.
Campus networks, built by T-Mobile, are private mobile networks built on the standards of digital communication technology supporting LTE, 5G and the Internet of Things for business, production and operational purposes. This year alone, TMobile is investing tens of millions of crowns in campus networks for universities and industry. It cooperates with leading universities (VŠB-TU Ostrava, CIIRC CTU Prague, VUT Brno or CULS Prague), whose scientists, students and cooperating companies it enables to develop innovative solutions for smart production.
T-Mobile has built one of the most advanced campus network solutions at CIIRC CTU, which uses the fastest and most modern digital technologies supporting LTE, 5G and IoT for comprehensive testing of applications, communications, devices, machines and robots. The laboratory premises are covered here, including the Testbed for Industry 4.0 with a total area of 1,000 m2. At the same time, T-Mobile, together with CIIRC CTU, established an experimental laboratory here, in which it will continue to develop innovative solutions for the digitization of companies. Everything here runs on T-Mobile's first 5G Stand Alone (SA) network, which is based on Ericsson technologies.

T-Mobile is also a partner of the nationwide academic-industrial platform National Center of Industry 4.0 and enables testing of 5G networks and their benefits for companies also within the framework of partner testbeds. In addition to the Prague CIIRC CTU, it is a testbed at CEITEC at the Brno University of Technology, at the University of Mining – Technical University of Ostrava, as well as testbeds of the German institutes DFKI and ZeMA in Saarbrücken. In addition to students and industrial companies, a number of start-ups working to digitize production also use testbeds for development and testing.
The deployment of 5G networks in Industry 4.0 solutions supports the maximum level of digitization by enabling the transfer of the required computing capacity from production machines and robots, where specific industrial computers are used, to data rooms, where it is possible to work with a standard hardware environment. 5G networks also connect smart machines, storage and logistics systems and other technological devices into one unit, while enabling significant improvements in business processes – from design and production through logistics chain management to customer support and implementation of innovative activities.
