20 Gbps downlink throughputs demonstrated by Vodafone UK using the E band (70-80 GHz) with Huawei equipment in an outdoor scenario. This throughput leverages a single user MIMO solution using multipath to augment throughputs. Another test with a Multi User MIMO solution provided 10 Gbps on a longer range
BT (EE) signed a collaboration agreement on 5G technologies with Nokia. They agreed to work together on potential customer use cases for 5G technologies, the creation of 5G trials and the development of the emerging technology. These trials will focus on mmWave radio and convergence, as well as potential commercial services including ultrafast mobile broadband […]
Tele2 Lithuania demonstrated pre-5G technology in Vilnius with equipment vendor Nokia, during which speeds of up to 4.3 Gbps were achieved.
Elisa tested 5G network in Helsinki using Nokia 5G technology, achieving 5 Gbps in the trial.
Tele2 and Nokia have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to accelerate development of 5G mobile networks. The companies will focus on LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), 5G radio access technologies as well as new Internet of Things (IoT) services.
Vodafone has started trialling vehicle-to-vehicle communications (LTE-V2X) in the UK and is planning further trials in Germany. LTE-V2X enables cars to chat with each other to improve road safety and efficiency.
Proximus successfully tested 5G technology with the provider Huawei. During the tests, speeds of up to 70 Gbps were reached over millimetre wave at 73GHz.
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.
