Vodafone demonstrated a holographic call using 5G. The demonstrated speed of 5G would enable other applications such as remote robotic surgery and 4K gaming on the move.
Ericsson and Swisscom conducted a multivendor 5G Non-Standalone data call on the 3.5 GHz band in Burgdorf, Switzerland. The data call was conducted using Ericsson’s commercial HW/SW (NSA-compliant) Ericsson Radio System with AIR 6488, Baseband 6630, R6000 Transport and virtual EPC for 5G. Data transmissions were carried out using Intel’s Mobile Trial Platform (MTP) device […]
Deutsche Telekom and Germany’s Senate Department for Economic, Technology and Research are cooperating on the development of a 5G test bed in Berlin. The network will enable enterprises, start-ups and organisations to trial a range of 5G innovations, applications and communications devices in real time through to 2020.
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.
MTS and Nokia achieved 5G tests. The operator’s tests using Nokia equipment resulted in mobile data rates of up to 4.5Gbps using 200MHz of aggregated frequency bandwidth. By 2018 the partners are planning to operate a 5G system on a segment of MTS’ commercial network to coincide with football’s World Cup in Russia that year.
Vodafone Germany and Huawei performed 5G tests combining low band and high band to test mobility in dense urban city scenarios. Using the C band, 1.5km cell coverage was demonstrated as well as a 5Gbps throughput for a single user.
