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.
Orange Polska and Huawei launched a station supporting 5G technology in Gliwice. It is the first 5G tests in Poland carried out outside a laboratory on 3.4-3.6 GHz frequency.
Under Decision No. 2018-0177 from Arcep, Orange will be allowed to use the 3.5GHz spectrum for 5G trials for twelve months starting June 2018, in over 30 French cities including Lille and Douai. Orange had already started installing its equipment at 30 sites in Lille and 48 sites at Douai in the 3600-3700 MHz frequency […]
Orange and Ericsson will develop 5G use cases and service scenarios, including technical alignment and external demonstrations. The partnership will enable 5G technology building blocks, proof of concepts, and pilots across Europe from 2017 onwards, with use cases including: – wireless multi-gigabits internet access in suburban and rural environments (a first demo reaching 15 Gbps […]
Orange and Nokia have signed a 5G collaboration agreement. The two companies will work together to develop, trial and introduce solutions for 5G and the digital transformation of vertical industries. This work will also include the application of ultra-broadband leveraging new frequency bands; cloud RAN and massive MIMO; the Internet of Things (IoT); end-to-end network […]
Orange, Ericsson and PSA signed a partnership agreement to drive 5G technology for automotive applications, focused on “Vehicle-to-Vehicle” (V2V) and “Vehicle-to-Everything” (V2X) architecture. Initial tests will use an end-to-end architecture system based on LTE technology before evolving to LTE-Vehicle and 5G technologies.
Orange and Huawei have signed a partnership agreement to cooperate on 5G and cloudification technologies. The two companies will focus on the development of Massive MIMO, cloudification of the mobile network, network slicing, 4G and 5G power and channel sharing within spectrum bands.
Orange and Ericsson achieved tests of 5G technology in central Madrid, Spain. Trials reached speeds of up to 17Gbps and latency to under 1 millisecond. Companies used a 5G base station as well as Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) and beamforming technology. Tests have been performed using 800 MHz in the 28 GHz band, which also saw […]
Orange Romania and Huawei have conducted a live technology trial of a “Massive MIMO” solution in the capital city of Bucharest. The trial uses TD LTE Technology in the 3.5GHz band. Moreover, the trial showed a boost in customer quality of experience (x5 in upload and x2.5 in download) compared to existing 4G technologies at […]
Orange Spain announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona that it will be conducting trials of 5G technology in four unnamed Spanish cities in 2019. The operator said it will be using the 40MHz of spectrum in the 3.5GHz band it acquired in a 2016 auction for the 5G pilots.
