NEW DELHI: Vodafone Idea has achieved a maximum download speed of 5.92 Gbps in collaboration with the Swedish telecommunications equipment manufacturer Ericsson during the ongoing 5G trials in Pune, Maharashtra.

We achieved this speed on a single-test device using a combination of medium and high band (millimeter-wave or mmWave) 5G sample spectrum using Ericsson equipment such as Massive MIMO radios Ericsson cloud-native dual-mode 5G core for standalone (SA) architecture and NR-DC (New Radio-Dual Connectivity) software, according to an official statement Friday.

With 5G Standalone NR-DC software, we can deliver latency-sensitive and high-performance applications such as AR / VR and 8K video streaming as well as innovative new use cases for consumers and businesses once it implements 5G on its commercial network, it added. .

Earlier during its 5G trials and exhibition of use cases in Pune, We had demonstrated speeds of over 4Gbps.

“Given the growing consumer demand for immersive media and video streaming services, the 5G speeds we’ve demonstrated will help us prepare for customers ‘mobile broadband speeds and greater network capacity requirements when we’re ready for’ 5G for a Better Tomorrow. ‘in India,’ said Jagbir Singh, Chief Technology Officer, Vodafone Idea.

On Thursday, Nokia said it will implement its Dense wavelength division multiplexing (Access DWDM) solution to upgrade Vodafone Idea’s 5G transport network.

“The new compact and scalable DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) solution will allow us to optimize fiber resources while ensuring 100G capacity with future upgrading capacity of the network to 200G and above, in the access network,” Nokia said in a press release.

“Achieving this technological milestone of 5.92 Gbps download speed by leveraging Ericsson’s 5G Standalone NR-DC software and cloud-native dual-mode 5G Core represents a milestone in India’s development of 5G Standalone with mmWave,” said Amarjeet Singh, Vice President and Head of Customer Unit We at Ericsson. 5G is expected to account for 39% of all mobile subscriptions in India by 2027, according to the Ericsson Mobility Report, November 2021 edition.

5G is set to become the dominant mobile access technology for subscriptions globally in 2027. At this point, 5G is expected to account for around 50 percent of all mobile subscriptions worldwide – covering 75% of the world’s population and carrying 62% of global smartphone traffic according to the report.
