Telia Norway partners Ericsson on tests of high-band 5G

16 May 2022

Telia Norway and Swedish vendor Ericsson have joined forces to conduct 5G tests in the millimetre wave (mmWave) spectrum, claiming to have already achieved download speeds of close to 4Gbps. In a press release regarding the development, Ericsson said that the 26GHz mmWave tests are being conducted in Oslo, Trondheim and Lillestrom, and seek to explore coverage and capacity indoors, outdoors and in densely populated areas. According to the Swedish vendor, the tests – which seek to see how consumers, businesses, and industries might utilise the speed, capacity, and latency of mmWave spectrum – will use Ericsson’s full radio solution (Radio AIR5322 and Baseband 6630), with contribution to the overall solution design, configuration.

Speaking on the matter, Georg Svendsen, Head of Infrastructure, Telia Norway, said: ‘Our tests in the millimetre band show impressive download speeds with massive capacity and low latency. This makes the technology perfect for everything from Enterprise Mobile Networks and advanced gaming to fan experiences at sport stadiums and of course for private and commercial use in general.’
