Set a record speed of data transmission in 5G networks from a moving vehicle of 7.5 Gbps
Ericsson has announced an important achievement that few bring the era of ultra high-speed mobile networks fifth generation (5G). Developing technology and equipment for 5G networks the company demonstrated a high-speed connection in a moving vehicle.
In the experiment, the peak data transfer rate reached 7.5 GB/s. high throughput, low latency and high reliability of connection is particularly important for such applications 5G how self-driving cars and buses.
To demonstrate the used equipment of the Ericsson 5G Radio Prototype, now being tested in several countries. A demonstration inspired by the streets of Stockholm, adjacent to the headquarters of Ericsson.
Modern LTE networks can theoretically provide bandwidth up to 326,4 Mbit/s. 5G Services are expected to provide an opportunity to transfer data at speeds up to 10 or even 20 GB/s. moreover, the new technology will provide reduced delays, improved safety, reduced energy consumption, lower total cost of ownership.
In June of this year, Ericsson and MTS agreed on the development of 5G technology. On cooperation was announced by the representatives of the cellular operator. The Russian company and the Swedish telecommunications equipment manufacturer signed a supply agreement for the modernization of networks MTS until 2019.
Note that another major operator, MegaFon, is prepared to start testing 5G networks.
