沃达丰的想法,不kia partner to trial 5G services using E-band

“Together with Vi, we achieved 9.85 Gbps of backhaul capacity using E-band Microwave in 80GHz spectrum, unlocking the true potential of 5G,” Nokia said.

NEW DELHI:NokiaWednesday said it has partnered withVodafone Ideato trial5Gservices in areas where fiber is challenging to deploy.

“Together with Vodafone, we achieved 9.85 Gbps of backhaul capacity using E-band Microwave in 80GHz spectrum at the trial site in Gandhi Nagar, Gujarat. This is a significant development in our ongoing 5G trials, as operators need to scale up the backhaul capacity to manage the huge jump in traffic once 5G is introduced while the fiber network is still being built in India,” said a Nokia spokesperson.

In such a scenario, the spokesperson said scalable backhaul solutions would play a critical role due to faster deployment with fiber-like performance and cost-efficiency.

For the trial, Nokia and Vodafone Idea used Nokia Wavence backhaul solution along with Cross Polarization Interference Cancellation (XPIC) technology.

Vodafone Idea is currently conducting 5G trials in the cities of Pune (Maharashtra) and Gandhinagar (Gujarat), along with its technology vendors such asEricssonand Nokia.

在9月之前,沃达丰(Vodafone)声称to achieve a peak speed of 3.7Gbps using mmWave spectrum in Pune. It also claimed to have achieved 1.5Gbps download speed in the mid-band spectrum in Gandhinagar and Pune.

Jio also claims to have logged a peak speed of 1Gbps in June and Airtel is also said to have recorded 1Gbps speed with 10ms latency during a cloud gaming session using trial 5G spectrum in Manesar, Gurgaon.

The Department of Telecommunications has allocated trial spectrum in the 700MHz band, 3.3GHz-3.6GHz band, and mmWave band (24.25GHz-28.5GHz) as well as, spectrum in E&V bands to operators.

Vodafone Idea, Ericsson partner to trial 5G healthcare use cases in rural locations

“Based on the high data speed, low latency, and reliability of 5G, a doctor located in an urban center can actually carry out an ultrasound scan on a patient who is in a remote rural location,” Vodafone Idea and Ericsson in a joint statement said.


This comes close on the heels of telecom operators’ letter to the government seeking an extension till November 2022 to wrap up 5G trials.

Alongside, the telecom department has reportedly formed a committee to chalk out a strategy for the commercialization and monetization of 5G and locally developed 5Gi, and to devise the ways in which the fifth-generation wireless network can proliferate across the country.

The 5Gi standard claims to extend the 5G coverage in rural areas through a ‘Low Mobility Large Cell’ (LMLC) feature which significantly increases the signal transmission range of the base station.

Telecom operators were also encouraged to conduct trials using the 5Gi standard, a move that has been staunchly opposed.

On November 3, operators wrote a letter to the government urging it to maintain a technology-neutral stance on 5G and to harmonize 5Gi by making it a part of 3G Partnership Project or 3GPP.

Otherwise, Jio, Airtel, and Vodafone Idea along with vendors and chipmakers have cautioned that the adoption of 5Gi would hurt the business case for the fifth-generation technology in India.
