MTS AND NOKIA REACH RECORD-BREAKING INTERNET SPEEDS IN RUSSIA USING 5G

Thursday, September 15, 2016

MTS and Nokia announce successful results that reached record-breaking Internet speeds of 4.5 GB/sec at 200 MHz during 5G trials in Russia.

During trials in MTS’s laboratory, in the presence of journalists, a video clip filmed in 8K Ultra HD (7680x4320) quality on Harley Days festival in Saint-Petersburg, was streamed live on big screen using Nokia equipment, while the guests enjoyed the experience enhanced by Virtual-Reality headsets.

The maximum downlink speed was 4.5 GB/sec, meaning that a 1GB file can be transferred in less than 2 seconds. That entails that a CD-album in Hi-Fi quality can be downloaded in less than 1.5 seconds and a full-HD 1-hour video film can be downloaded in 14 seconds.

The tests were carried out on Nokia’s AirFrame and AirScale equipment using 4.65-4.85 GHz spectrum through two aggregated 100 MHz transmitters in the same configuration as would be used in a commercial deployment in a high density environment. For the first time in Russia, a MIMO 8x8 technology was used with 8 antennas on each of the devices and with the support of multi-channel video streaming. This technology increased data transmission  speed by times when compared to current LTE-standards.
