Highspeed communication for the first edition of IAA Mobility: With their 5G solutions, Messe München and mobile telephone operators Telekom, Vodafone and Telefónica Deutschland / O2 will be providing the necessary bandwidths for exhibitors both in the exhibition hall and in the Open Space areas and the Blue Lane.

A large double-digit number of new 5G locations will be implemented in Munich's city centre by the starting date of IAA Mobility on September 7. These include additional macro sites to ensure basic coverage in the outdoor areas of exhibition grounds. The 5G spectrum used by the three network operators ranges from 800 megahertz frequencies, which are particularly suited to 5G in buildings, up to 3.7 gigahertz frequencies, which offer maximum bandwidth.
„The 5G network opens up new future potential.“

"For us as a trade fair company, the 5G network also opens up new future potential, including in the area of smart fairs. The advances in automation and sensors, coupled with 5G technology, can take on a leading role in future, and enable us as a trade fair company to make exhibition operations even more effective and cost-efficient", say Klaus Dittrich, chairman and CEO of Messe München.
