Ericsson 5G RAN

Ericsson has announced the successful completion of a connection overcoming the 2 Gbps speed barrier on a 5G live commercial network alongside TIM and Qualcomm. The connection was completed on a 26 Gigahertz (GHz) millimeter-wave (mmWave) frequency that was acquired by TIM as part of the Italian government’s 5G bid.

The performance will improve significantly throughout 2020 as the network will be able to use up to 800 MHz and afterward up to 1000 MHz, moving the world closer to new Industry 4.0 scenarios with exceptionally fast services, extremely low latency and high levels of security and reliability.   

Telecom Italia (TIM), Qualcomm and Ericsson had successfully completed the live video call earlier using 5G millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum.
