During the five-day event (April 9 – 13), the greatest interest of the media and the public was given to the official opening of the Fair and the promotion of 4G networks in Bosnia and Herzegovina, after the operators were issued the long-awaited licenses to introduce 4G mobile communications, just a day before the Fair’s opening.

Ericsson Nikola Tesla’s exhibition stand was prominent for its look and contents, thus attracting numerous visitors, media representatives, including national television broadcasters, as well as the official protocol delegation that was welcomed by Milan Živković, Director of Strategy and Business Development, who briefly presented the Company’s solutions.

An excellent attendance of the press conference at the stand of HT ERONET, where a symbolic launch of 4G network was held, was also important for the Company. On this occasion, Vilim Primorac, president of the Management Board of HT ERONET, stated: “I am very happy that our long-term partner, Ericsson Nikola Tesla, is accompanying us in all this, and assists us to be the leader in technology in the domestic telecom sector.

There are further serious investments and a lot of work ahead of us, and by today’s act, a serious digital transformation of society at large begins.”
At the end of the conference, Boris Jukić, Head of Media Solutions at Ericsson Nikola Tesla, presented one of the applications of 4G network, focused on the ultimate user experience of advanced services in virtual reality, such as Live 360 VR Streaming, through which the users, by using VR Headset, can experience watching, for example, a sports event or a concert, as if they were attending the event.
