Huawei and Sunrise Showcase Fastest 5G Connection in Switzerland
December 20, 2017
Huawei and Sunrise have jointly showcased the large scope of 5G use cases on a 5G E2E Network. Using cloud-based end-to-end applications, 5G performance capability was demonstrated with virtual reality, 360-degree panoramic live video, and twelve parallel 4K video streams on 65-inch UHD TVs. The download data throughput was 3.28Gbit/s, the highest ever measured for a mobile Internet link with 3.5GHz.
The fifth generation of mobile network technology facilitates many new key functions. As shown by the 5G demo staged by Sunrise and Huawei, one 5G mobile wireless connection could easily replace the wired Internet access in a multi-unit dwelling with twelve households. Even with twelve parallel data-intensive 4K TV streams, which consume about 750Mbit/s, there is still a lot of spare capacity in this early 5G phase. This would allow each household to use a number of additional Internet connections at the same time.
