The Croatian infrastructure operator Digital Signals and Networks (OiV) has provided insights into its 5G broadcast strategy.
In a statement, it says that its board’s decision to launch tests is a strategic project designed to gain new knowledge and experience. Working with broadcasting equipment manufacturers, mobile network operators, publishers and regulators, it plans to install equipment at OIV locations in Sljeme and Sveta Nedelja.
Furthermore, it has obtained the necessary approval for the use of UHF channels covering the city of Zagreb and Zagreb County from the regulator HAKOM.
Following the installation and commissioning of equipment, measurements of various indicators, variations of transmitter parameters and measurements of required reception levels for various types of reception on fixed, mobile or portable devices in urban and rural areas will be carried out.
OiV concludes by saying that it expects to soon see the appearance of mobile phones that have the ability to receive 5G broadcast services.
