Major European 5G Trials and Pilots

This page lists 5G trials that have been publicly announced in EU28, Norway, Russia, Switzerland and Turkey 

Of course it is always possible that we have not got all announcements, or you may have a better link to any of the mentioned trials. If so please send the information to info@5gobservatory.eu and this list will be updated.

There is a variety of 5G tests and experimentations with divergent results. For example, In Switzerland, Sunrise and Huawei demonstrated use cases on a 5G end-to-end network. Download throughputs of 3.28 Gbit/s were achieved, using spectrum in the 3.5Ghz band. 5G was tested with Virtual reality, 360° live video and 4K video streams.

In Germany, Deutsche Telekom, Intel and Huawei have collaborated to achieve 5G interoperability and development testing based on the 3GPP R15 Standard with a commercial base station. This test was based on Huawei’s 5G commercial base station and Intel’s third generation 5G NR Mobile Trial Platform (MTP), while it also incorporates Massive MIMO multi-antenna and beamforming technology enabled by the standard framework.

Orange and Bouygues Telecom managed to reach respectively 15 and 25 Gbit/s, and the tests by Samsung did not exceed 1.7 Gbit/s. Most experts agree that the 5G will achieve an average rate of 1 Gbit/s. Recent tests (Feb 2018) in real conditions carried out in Finland by the mobile operator Elisa, in partnership with Huawei, have achieved the 1Gbit/s rate.  The partnership also tested virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and gaming applications on the 5G testbed, achieving speeds of 1.4 Gbit/s between the base station and the device. The 5G network has managed to provide a constant connection of at least 700 Mb/s, against 50 Mb/s for the 4G LTE, so we would have a speed at least 14 times faster.

Both partners also completed a test in Milan, on a full end-to-end (E2E) network, of a technique to enhance the range of high frequency bands (3.7 GHz bands made available by Italy’s Ministry of Economic Development), possibly used for 5G networks. Instead of using a single frequency band to communicate between a smartphone and the network, companies used different frequency bands for DL and UL transmissions. Vodafone demonstrated up to a 10 decibel coverage range improvement in the uplink when also utilising the low band, meaning that customers would get a stronger signal even in areas where 5G coverage is limited.

The solution proved the feasibility of 5G fronthaul upper-layer and lower-layer transport over wireless.
The successful trial was a key part of a larger two-month trial integrating technology innovations from six partners in the H2020 5G-Crosshaul consortium, InterDigital, Ericsson, Nokia, UC3M, NEC and CND. The trial started in November 2017 and was conducted in Madrid (Spain) at 5TONIC, an open research and innovation lab focusing on 5G technologies. The 5G-Crosshaul consortium, over the three years 2015-2017, has developed a novel 5G integrated fronthaul/backhaul transport solution, named 5G-Crosshaul, that enables flexible transport reconfiguration via Software Defined Networking (SDN) in a multi-tenant, multi-domain environment, while meeting 5G’s stringent service requirements.
