Italy’s Ministry of Economic Development (MISE) has approved the use of 5G frequencies in network trials to be conducted in the city of Cagliari after reaching an agreement with Fastweb. The experimentation is linked to the Joint Innovation Centre (JIC) project developed by Huawei, the Sardinian regional government and local advanced studies institute CRS4 to develop ICT solutions and services in the areas of health, transport, waste management, logistics, security and Industry 4.0 with the involvement of the Municipality of Cagliari, local institutions, universities and SMEs. Tests will be held in three locations in the city of Cagliari and one in the Is Molas resort on the outskirts of the Sardinian capital. 

The launch of the trial means Cagliari joins several other Italian cities currently testing 5G network technology, although the ministry told Mondo Mobile Web that it would be incorrect to define Cagliari as an official site for pre-commercial trials of 5G networks, which are now underway via the 3.7 and 3.8 GHz bands in Milan, Prato, L’Aquila, Bari and Matera.
