ROME ��Telecom Italia has launched the �operational phase� that the company says will lead to nationwide 5G coverage in the microstate of San Marino, the 24-square-mile microstate totally surrounded by Italy, reports rcrwireless.com.

The company plans to start by deploying 4�4 MIMO, multi-channel carrier aggregation, advanced modulation and a cloud-based architecture, to be complemented by a fiber-fed small cell deployment across the tiny country.

Using this infrastructure, the entire country will be used as a testbed for the emerging 5G New Radio (NR) specification, according to the same article. The �San Marino 5G� project encompasses consumer and enterprise connectivity and is working to increase network capacity ten times, as compared to what�s available with LTE.��
