New 5G speed world record
In partnership with SK Telecom and BMW Korea, Ericsson used advanced 5G technology to track a connected car travelling up to 170 km/hour to demonstrate data transmission speeds on a 5G network.
Using advanced beamforming and beam tracking, the high-performance network connection supported point-to-point data transmission from a connected car travelling up to 170 kilometers per hour with downlink speeds of 3.6 Gbps. The test network comprised four radio transmission points operating in the 28GHz band and showed sustained high throughput throughout testing. Throughput above 1.5 Gbps was maintained while data transmission was switched from one transmission point to another.
Based on advanced 5G technology from Ericsson, precise beam tracking was enabled even at very high speeds – opening the door to new 5G services and delivering another concrete example of seamless mobility.
