Telenor, Huawei Conduct Successful 5G Tests with 70 Gbps Speeds

Huawei has said that it jointly conducted successful 5G tests with Telenor while achieving 70 Gbps speeds in a controlled lab environment.

Huawei said that this was its first 5G based E-band multi-user MIMO demo with any operator.

Just in case you don’t know, the E-band multi-user MIMO can provide over a 20 Gbps speed rate for a single user.

The test was conducted in Norway, where Telenor is hoping to deploy its first 5G network when it is commercially available.

Telenor said that successful tests will provide insights and learnings to identify necessary steps to undertake from 4G to 5G technology. They will be operated through the Telenor and Huawei Joint Innovation Center.

Telenor Group CEO, Sigve Brekke, and President of Telenor Key Account, Zhang Chao celebrate after watching the demo
