Nokia and TPG Telecom hit 2Gbps 5G uplink speed


Finnish telecommunications vendor Nokia and TPG Telecom have hit a 5G uplink speed of 2Gbps by deploying TPG Telecom’s 5G mmWave spectrum during a live demonstration at the Nokia 5G Futures Lab in Sydney Australia.

Claiming to be the fastest Australian 5G uplink record, the speed will enable Nokia and its customers such as TPG Telecom to offer performing low-latency services for industrial and IoT applications which are reliant on connectivity.

The live demonstration saw Nokia AirScale 5G mmWave base station utilise TPG Telecom’s 26GHz spectrum to connect, over the air, to a 5G device powered by a Snapdragon X65 5G Modem-RF System featuring fourth-generation Qualcomm QTM545 mmWave antenna modules.

Additionally, Nokia deployed its Carrier Aggregation (CA) technology to leverage the available spectrum assets. The CA setup included four component carriers of 100MHz each in the 26 GHz band.

The solution is expected to be fully deployed next year as new devices supporting this capability will be available.

5G mmWave technology will create new service opportunities for both consumers and industries. For consumers, it will allow real-time multi-user 8K ultra-high-definition bi-directional video streaming, and augmented reality content for smartphones or wearable devices for immersive experiences, according to Nokia.

Industries will benefit from streaming of massive amounts of data directly from embedded IoT sensors and industrial robots over 5G, allowing the real-time control of industrial processes using 5G connected Edge Compute Nodes.

This concept of processor offload across 5G was also demonstrated at the event using “Spot”—the 5G connected Robot Dog—developed in collaboration with the University of Technology Sydney.

“Super-fast uplink speeds are critical to fully realise the huge benefits of 5G networks, particularly as we look to emerging technologies like augmented intelligence, machine learning, advanced sensors and robotics that are set to transform industries and economies with huge safety, productivity and efficiency outcomes as we move towards the metaverse era,” said Nokia Oceania chief technology officer Dr Robert Joyce.

“This demonstration is important as it shows the huge potential of 5G mobile technology and gives a glimpse of the high-speed services that will one day be available to customers and businesses right across Australia,” said TPG Telecom chief technology officer Giovanni Chiarelli.

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.
