Huawei achieves speed of 3Gbps in a 5G trial in Turin

Huawei has achieved download speed of 3 Gbps in a 5G trial conducted over 3.6-3.8 GHz frequencies, offered by Italian Economic Development Ministry (MISE) for the trial.

The trial started on November 8th 2017, after the TIM-Fastweb-Huawei consortium won the 5G trial in Bari and Matera called by the Ministry of Economic Development (MISE) on the 3.6-3.8 GHz spectrum frequencies.

The trial was conducted to test the speed of connection, latency and efficiency in the use of the 3.6-3.8 GHz spectrum. All the parameters were tested by the vendor on a Network chain end to end 5G including the terminal, the new Radio access and the Core Network.

Huawei announced that a net throughput of over 3Gbps has been achieved, considering only 100 MHz of bandwidth used: an important result, in line with the latest version of the 3GPP standard, approved last December. Reaching a spectral efficiency of (30 b/s)/Hz, about 7 times compared to the more advanced 4G technology, the cost per bit is thus drastically reduced.

The 5G trials were carried out in Turin laboratory. Each bit took an end-to-end crossing time of the network chain (latency) of only 2.6 milliseconds, about 10 times less than a bit is used to take in the most advanced LTE technology.

The successful lab trial has set the stage for further field trials in the coming weeks.
