Telefónica-owned operator Movistar and Ericsson showcased a record speed of 20Gbps in the first 5G trial in Argentina using Ericsson’s mmWave 28GHz 5G Test Bed solution.
The trial, which took place in Buenos Aires, was conducted during launch of the first 5G lab and test bed in Argentina. The 5G test bed allows telecom operators and ecosystem partners such as academic institutions and industry representatives, to test 5G capabilities in a live network.
The 5G test bed and device prototypes were used to show advanced 5G technologies, including Massive MIMO, massive beamforming, Distributed MIMO, Multi-user MIMO, and beam tracking. These technologies together offer multi-gigabit data rates and ultra-low latency that are key requirements for future consumer mobile broadband and industrial use cases.
