Exhibitors and visitors at ISPO Munich and other shows organized by Messe München may be able to work on the internet faster in the future.Messe München has announced that it will join forces with the mobile communication operators Telekom, Vodafone and Telefónica Deutschland/O2 to launch one of the world’s most advanced public 5G networks for the premiere of IAA Mobility, the new urban mobility show scheduled for Sept. 7-12. The collaboration is designed to provide exhibitors with the necessary bandwidth both in the halls at the Munich exhibition center and in the open spaces and Blue Lane in the city of Munich. By the start of the show, a high double-digit number of new 5G sites will be set up in the city, as well as additional macro sites to ensure basic coverage in the outdoor area of Messe München. The 5G spectrum used by the three network operators ranges from 800-megahertz frequencies, which are particularly suitable for 5G in buildings, to 3.7-gigahertz frequencies, which offer maximum bandwidth. Hagen Rickmann, managing director of business customers at Telekom Deutschland, said, “Together with Messe München and our customized 5G campus solutions, we are laying the foundation for the trade show of the future at IAA Mobility 2021.” The statement suggests that the new mobile communications infrastructure will also remain in operation in Munich after the IAA.
