According to the press release, the Department of Information Technology has successfully tested the performance of the devices used by ambulance teams and the city’s operational staff on the LTE-450 network during the Russia-Brazil match that took place on March 23 in Moscow's Luzhniki stadium.
"Devices supporting LTE-450 allow for the exchange of video data, which sufficiently facilitates communication with the city's office of emergency operations during works in crowded public areas. That is why we are testing a brand new communication system that operates within a modern hi-tech standard," the statement said, quoting deputy director of the department, Alexander Gorbatko.
