AT&T and Ericsson, Tuesday showcased multi-gigabit per second bandwidth and 4K HD video streams on 5G using millimeter wave technology at the Texas Wireless Summit.

The demo system that leveraged eight carriers, uses large system bandwidth, analog beam forming with ultra-fast beam selection, feedback-based hybrid precoding, 4x4 Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) and dynamic beam tracking and beam acquisition.

According to AT&T, the 5G demonstration system will help them to develop proof of concept systems that will evolve to meet targeted 5G objectives. These include handling more data and more connected devices much faster, lowering latency and increasing battery life.

The Operator said that it has structured the demo and the 5G trials in such a way that it will be able to contribute to the international 5G standards development and pivot to compliant commercial deployments once standards are set by 3GPP. 

In addition to our 5G testing and trials in Austin, A&T also conducting system and software architecture lab work in Middletown, N.J., Atlanta and San Ramon, Calif.

Dave Wolter, assistant vice president, Radio Technology and RAN Architecture, AT&T
We’ve been working hard on this here at our lab in Austin. Now, we’re revealing our 5G progress to the public. Our 5G lab trials with Ericsson have shown great results. We reached speeds up to 14 gigabits per second in early tests. As we progress, we hope to continue to accelerate industry standards.
