Huawei after collaborating with Italian telecoms like Fastweb and TIM have conducted 5G technology tests in Turin, Italy. The Chinese mobile giant has used an experimental setup bandwidth of 100MHz and achieved connectivity speeds up to 3Gbps along with the spectral efficiency of 30 bits/second/Hz. This means Huawei’s latest tests show the result using seven times less bandwidth and speed is super-fast the company has said in a conference.
According to Huawei, “The connection speed, efficiency, and latency in use of spectrum were the major indicators of the test for the first data connection, which was tested on a network chain end-to-end 5G including the terminal, the new radio access, and the core network. The first data connection has a positive outcome it also sets the ground for the first site to be shifted to it in the coming weeks.”
The ministry of Economic Department Italy has granted the frequencies 3.6 to 3.8 GHz to the local companies TIM, Fastweb, and Huawei in order to test for 5G connectivity in cities Matera and Bari.
The companies are expected to continue these tests until they get perfection in this technology as Huawei plans to unveil first 5G site by June this year. Moreover, Italian cities Matera and Bari are expected to receive 100 percent 5G coverage and Vodafone Italy is standing behind and watching for 5G network commercialization.
Previously, Huawei conducted 5G tests in Vancouver Canada while collaborating with local Telus. The company was able to achieve 2Gbps of download speeds in that test. Along with that Huawei also conducted 5G tests in Korea; the recent tests in Italy however, have added more speeds reaching up to 3Gbps which is another success for the company.
Huawei has also announced previously that the company is investing $790 million in R&D of 5G technology. In later months, Huawei would be able to achieve what 5G technology is meant to achieve; it seems only the matter of a couple of years now.
