MTN South Africa demos 1.6Gbps in 100MHz TDD with 5ms latency

MTN South Africa, in partnership with Ericsson, demonstrated a 5G to a moving vehicle at the Gerotek testing facility in Pretoria.

The test used 100MHz of spectrum in the 28GHz band to achieve more than 1.6Gbps and less than 5ms latency on the connection.

The vehicle had a full obscured windscreen, requiring the driver to navigate the track using the live feed from a 4K video camera to his VR headset.

The solution demonstrated, consisted of 4 radio units, baseband equipment, a 5G user equipment (UE) prototype with an external antenna, a vehicle with the UE installed, a 4K video camera and a VR Headset, demonstrating the performance of a low-latency network.


“5G presents an opportunity for operators to improve their existing consumer businesses and address previously untapped value chains in the digitalization of industries. The collaboration between MTN South Africa and Ericsson has led to an exploration of a variety of use cases and applications for digital transformation of industries. These include the automotive, mining, transportation, agriculture, manufacturing and utilities sectors. We are proud to be demonstrating this use case with MTN” says Rafiah Ibrahim, Head of Ericsson Middle East and Africa.”

“At MTN Business, we are very excited to have demonstrated our IoT (Internet of Things) capabilities, enabled by 5G technology, to our top tier customers today. Using pilots like this, we are not only assessing and preparing our network to roll out 5G in the future, but we are also future-proofing our infrastructure to enrich customer experience and take industries to the next level,” says Wanda Matandela, Chief Business Enterprise Officer, MTN SA.

3 Hong Kong Tests FDD+TDD and 4.5G with Huawei

Hutchison Telecommunications's 3 Hong Kong division has demonstrated an FDD+TDD and 4.5G(TDD+) network in conjunction with Huawei at last week's Global Mobile Broadband (MBB) Forum 2015 in Hong Kong.

The 4.5G(TDD+) solution includes features such as four component carrier (4CC) carrier aggregation (CA), large-scale 4X4 Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) multi-antenna technology and 256 quadrature amplitude modulation (256 QAM) to significantly boost network capacity and peak download rates.

For the demo, 3 Hong Kong paired FDD spectrum in the 1800 MHz and 2600 MHz band with TDD 2300 MHz spectrum via CA technology, and achieved record download speeds of 1Gbps by utilising 60MHz of spectrum to maximise bandwidth efficiency.

3 Hong Kong and Huawei will continue to innovate and bring new mobile technologies to Hong Kong. We plan to re-farm our 900 MHz and 2100 MHz spectrums for LTE network deployment in order to develop a 5CC LTE-A network, further boosting the peak download rate to around 1.3 Gbps. By combining the strengths of mobile, fixed and Wi-Fi networks, we work tirelessly to provide customers with an all-round mobile communication experience with smooth and stable LTE service, plus high-quality content and customer service,” stated Peter Wong, CEO and Group Managing Director of HTHKH.

3 Hong Kong also showcased a commercial smartphone compatible with FDD+TDD 3CC CA technology at a 4.5G(TDD+) demonstration took place in Causeway Bay, one of the world’s most complex wireless environments.
