Ericsson's 5G Radio Test Bed Tops 5 Gbps

An Ericsson 5G radio test bed has topped 5 Gbps throughput.  The company will demonstrate fundamental 5G technologies at next week's Mobile World Congress, including 5G-LTE Dual Connectivity and 5G Multipoint Connectivity. Ericsson's 5G radio test bed features 5G devices and 5G radio base stations operating at in the high frequency 15 GHz band.

  • 5G-LTE Dual Connectivity:  The 5G mobile device moves between LTE and 5G radio access coverage areas, establishing simultaneous connections with both networks before seamlessly handing over.  5G-LTE Dual Connectivity will enable 5G networks to provide multi-standard and multi-band support in both devices and radio access.
  • 5G Multipoint Connectivity:  The 5G mobile device connects to two 5G base stations simultaneously, improving bit rate performance through multiple downlink streams, as well as signal strength and resilience.  5G Multipoint Connectivity will be key to supporting multi-layer networks consisting of both macro and small cell coverage.

"The Ericsson 5G radio test bed is where innovation meets implementation.  It certainly is a reflection of our commitment to 5G technology leadership but it's also where we test and expand the limits of how mobility will transform society," says Arun Bansal, Senior Vice President, Head of Business Unit Radio, Ericsson.
