Huawei, Vodafone test 5G mobile connectivity using high and low frequency bands

17 Oct 2016

Huawei has announced that it has successfully tested 5G mobile connectivity using high and low frequency bands for dense urban city scenarios in partnership with Vodafone Group. The companies demonstrated 1.5km cell coverage in the lower C-Band and 5Gbps peak throughput for a single user in the high band. ‘The results of these tests are an important development and help further our understanding of how 5G mobile connectivity performs in high and low frequency bands,’ commented Luke Ibbetson, Head of Vodafone Group Research and Development, adding: ‘We look forward to continuing our collaboration with Huawei to test and evaluate emerging 5G technologies.’

Huawei and Vodafone signed a 5G strategic memorandum of understanding (MoU) in 2015 and a 5G Technologies Acceleration MoU followed in 2016.
