Vodafone New Zealand has conducted a 5G trial in partnership with Nokia. The two companies showcased 5G use cases and implementations in Auckland earlier this week.
Vodafone and Nokia trialled a 5G connection at Vodafone’s Innov8 Auckland headquarters across the millimeter wave spectrum band. CEO Russell Stanners also said that they will next experiment with 5G across 3.5GHz.
“As a leading global mobile player, Vodafone has been actively involved in leading and shaping the 5G evolution from the beginning, with trials and partnerships under way across the world,” Stanners said.
Nokia is providing its AirScale and Airframe platforms for the 5G trial, with the system connected to a device using third-party chipsets.
“Vodafone will continue to be at the forefront of the development of 5G, and with our Kiwi ingenuity we will be working hard to bring our customers the latest developments in 5G as soon as they become available,” he added.
