On 31st of March Norway-based global telco Telenor Group, serving around 214 million mobile subscribers in 13 markets worldwide, and Huawei has jointly announced what they claim is the first 5G-based E-band multi-user MIMO demonstration to be conducted in Norway.
Telenor and Huawei with collaboration conducted a successful 5G test achieving 70Gbps speed in a controlled environment.
According to Huawei, it was their first 5G based E-band multi-user MIMO demo with any cellular operator.
During the demonstration, the partners achieved a maximum data rate of 70 Gbit/s and demonstrated that E-band (the 71-76/81-86 GHz frequency band) multi-user MIMO can provide delivery 20 Gbit/s speeds for a single user.
The test was conducted in Norway, where Telenor is hoping to deploy its first 5G network when it is commercially available.
Telenor said that successful tests would provide insights and learnings to identify necessary steps to undertake from 4G to 5G technology. They will be operated through the Telenor and Huawei Joint Innovation Center. Check Out Telenor 3G/4G Packages.
