AT&T has launched the first business customer trial of 5G technology for Intel at Intel’s Austin, Texas, facility. Ericsson is also part of the joint testing.

As part of the collaboration, Intel and Ericsson are providing 5G infrastructure and connectivity technology for the millimeter wave (mmWave) end-user device and gateway powering this next-generation wireless network experience.

According to AT&T, the trial is the first of its kind. AT&T has worked with Ericsson to conduct its first public 5G demo featuring streaming 4K HD video and real-time camera feeds - reaching speeds of nearly 14Gbps.

The companies taking this 5G technology out of the lab to explore what benefits it can provide in a real-world business setting.

Future 5G networks will provide the communications backbone for data-rich services and sophisticated cloud apps, delivered faster and more efficiently than ever. The gigabit bandwidth will let the three companies jointly test multiple enterprise proof-of-concept use cases, said Intel. This includes internet access, VPN, unified communications applications and 4K video streams. The trial will showcase the potential of 5G voice-over-IP over the 15GHz and 28GHz spectrum bands.
