A brand-new record for the fastest 5G download speed on an industrial network has actually been set– 5Gbps for a single user.
That’s according to a statement today from Telstra in cooperation with Ericsson and Qualcomm, after a 5G NR information call was carried out at the 5G Development Centre on the Gold Coast in Australia.
” We’re delighted to have actually yet once again increased our existing network peak speed record as we release 5G and prepared ourselves for this year’s upcoming mmWave spectrum auction,” states Telstra executive for networks and IT Nikos Katinakis.
” In a period of increased need for perfect connection, it provides us fantastic enjoyment to offer our clients with improved network abilities such as using mmWave and our other spectrum possessions.”
Telstra, Ericsson and Qualcomm set the record utilizing the industrial production network and an undefined ‘smart device type aspect mobile test gadget’. It follows a previous record embeded in September in 2015, where a 4.2 Gbps optimal download speed on an industrial 5G network was accomplished.
Ericsson head of Australia and New Zealand Emilio Romeo states the turning point was a huge enhancement by itself record set 3 years earlier.
” Given that accomplishing a world-first turning point with the 2Gbps LTE innovation back in 2018, we have actually worked relentlessly with Telstra and Qualcomm Technologies to regularly innovate and offer Australians with the very best 5G innovation,” states Romeo.
” This statement today is a testimony to that devotion, and we eagerly anticipate seeing Australians profit as we move into 2021.”
The brand-new optimum speed was reached in the live network with the Ericsson Radio System total base station for millimetre wave (mmWave), the Streetmacro 6701.
The throughput was accomplished by means of NR provider aggregation (CA) of 8 100MHz n257 mmWave providers integrated with LTE CA of 2 20MHz Band 7 providers– in overall 840MHz spectrum was utilized for a single user, which is a substantial turning point for cordless interaction. The smart device was powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X60 5G Modem-RF System with 3rd generation Qualcomm QTM535 mmWave antenna modules.
” We are happy to have actually belonged of this considerable mmWave turning point of reaching download speeds of 5 Gbps,” states Qualcomm senior vice president and basic supervisor for 4G/5G Durga Malladi.
” 5G mmWave will make it possible for lots of brand-new usage cases for customers and organizations in addition to make it possible for a number of today’s mobile phones to make the most of its improved network capability, multi-gigabit speeds and low latency.
” We eagerly anticipate our close, continuous cooperation with Telstra and Ericsson in driving industrial 5G mmWave in Australia in 2021.”
