Orange Spain and ZTE successfully carried out a voice and data call over 5G network using New Radio (NR) standalone (SA) architecture. The test took place in Valencia and achieved speeds up to 876 Mbps for a single terminal, and 3.2Gbps with 12 simultaneous terminals. Orange Spain announced the extention of 5G trials accross many […]
During the MWC 2019, Huawei and Vodafone demonstrated their capability of providing a superior 5G experience based on a live network and 5G devices. Using Huawei’s E2E products and solutions, Vodafone deployed high performance 5G networks in multiple sites across Barcelona City Center (Plaza Catalunya, Paseo de Gracia, Balmes and Universitat) were users could experiment […]
Telefónica , Nokia , TELDAT and Avanza , with the collaboration of the City of Segovia , launched a 5G demonstrator of 4K UHD TV in a moving bus in Spain. The vehicule was equiped with three 4K TV screens installed by Telefónica and Avanza, connected to a 4K TV decoder designed by Nokia that […]
Orange Spain announced 5G pilot tests in seven cities lasting until the end of 2019. The selection includes Barcelona, Seville, Santiago de Compostela, Vigo, Malaga, Valencia and Bilbao for the testing of 35 use scenarios of 5G networks applied to connected cars, industrial automation and virtual classrooms.
Vodafone with Huawei have installed 5G network nodes at La Nave in Madrid. The deployment supported demonstrations related to the potential impact of 5G. The network is on the 3.7 GHz band, enabling download speeds of up to 2.2 Gbps.
The launch of 5G trials was announced in the cities of Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Bilbao, Malaga and Seville by Vodafone. The announcement follows the recent acquisition of 90 megahertz of spectrum in the the 3.6-3.8 GHz band by the operator for €198 million.
First ever Proof of Concept for the applicability of SDN to wireless Transport Networks through open protocols. This progammable capabilities permit to adapt transport resources to the dynamic nature of 5G services. Multi-layer capabilities were tested, involving IP and MW.
Telefonica and Huawei achieved 5G tests, using ‘user centric and no cell (UCNC) RAN architecture’. Results showed latency decreasing by 95% compared with ‘state-of the-art’ LTE. Meanwhile, Huawei and Telefonica also achieved the demonstration of mmWave Multi-User MIMO technology based on 5G New Radio (NR) and Massive MIMO TDD technology.
Telefonica and ZTE completed ‘Pre-5G’ Massive Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output (MIMO) live testing in Madrid. All tests were based on existing 4G terminals.
Telefonica tested Nokia’s XGS-PON fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) technology in its labs as a potential mobile backhaul technology for 5G and for aggregated remote access node traffic. The company said that XGS-PON delivered symmetrical speeds of up to 10 Gb/s, which is faster than current GPON technology that Telefonica has deployed.
