Ericsson provided 5G network equipment for a pilot network that was launched by Dannish carrier TDC in the city of Helsingør, Denmark. The pilot network went live during a joint Ericsson-TDC in event in Helsingør that featured multiple 5G demonstrations, including an immersive gaming experience.
TDC, in partnership with Huawei, tested 5G technology using 100MHz in the 3.5GHz band awarded by the Danish Energy Agency (or Energistyrelsen). The operator achieved transmission speeds of 1.9Gbps in the trial. TDC now aims to deploy its first 5G antennas during 2019.
