7 Apr 2021

TIM Brasil has enlisted Ceragon Networks to participate in 5G testing it is carrying out alongside the Telecom Infra-Project (TIP) and the National Telecommunication Institute (Instituto Nacional de Telecomunicacoes, INATEL). The open field trial will take place on the INATEL campus, in Santa Rita do Sapucai (Minas Gerais), and will incorporate software and hardware vendors, operators, university members and members of the TIP working groups. The project is focused on the provision of 5G OpenRAN solutions.

For the purpose of the trial, TIM Brasil will deploy Ceragon’s IP-50E millimetre wave (mmWave) solution, which the vendor says is capable of delivering capacity of up to 20Gbps.
