With just a few days left before the start of the Mobile World Congress, Deutsche Telekom in partnership with Huawei conducted a pre-MWC 5G live demo, showcasing an impressive 70Gbps multi-user connection speeds on millimeter wave (mmWave) band of 73GHz using the mmWave Multi-user MIMO technology.
The live demo gives good insights on how the advanced multi-beam forming technology uses meta-material antennas to enable an ultra-high broadband experience for customers in indoor scenarios as well as in extremely crowded areas, said Huawei.
According to Huawei, the meta-material based focal array (MMFA) technology is used to create steerable pencil pointing beams between the antenna array and users’ devices. They transmit at the same time and at the same frequency, separated by their different beam signatures. This enables the mmWave Multi-user MIMO technology to provide more than 20Gbps high connectivity speed to every individual user.
