AIS, ZTE showcase Thailand’s first 5G mmWave standalone network

AIS, Thailand’s leading mobile operator, partnered with ZTE and Qualcomm to complete a successful trial of mmWave 5G standalone (SA) technology at the AZ Centre in Bangkok.

The achievement not only positions Thailand as a leader in the ASEAN region in mmWave pilots but is also a big step toward commercialising mmWave in the country to meet the diverse needs of consumers and businesses, ZTE said.

During the trial, ZTE said the 5G mmWave SA technology showed “unparalleled” downlink speeds of 7.04 Gbps, “impressive” uplink speeds of 2.12 Gbps and end-to-end latency of less than 4 milliseconds. The results were achieved using a single customer premises equipment prototype powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon system along with ZTE’s latest mmWave network infrastructure equipment. This technology allowed users to experience immediate responses during critical applications such as online gaming and autonomous vehicles.

The mmWave SA used four 200 MHz carriers in the downlink and two in the uplink, all operating at 26 GHz.
