Australian telco TPG Telecom and Nokia achieved the fastest uplink speed in the country i.e 2Gbps
The duo set a new record during a live demonstration at Nokia’s 5G Futures Lab in Sydney. A few of the applications of the 5G technology are the low-latency and potential use in industrial and IoT applications.
Nokia’s demonstration incorporated Nokia AirScale 5G mmWave base station using TPG Telecom’s 26GHz spectrum to connect Over the Air (OTA) to a 5G device powered by Snapdragon X65 5G Modem- RF System featuring QTM545 mmWave antenna modules.
TPG has also deployed Carrier Aggregation (CA) technology to take max advantage of the available spectrum assets. CA setup incorporated four component carriers of 100MHz each in the 26GHz band.
Nokia Oceania Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Robert Joyce, “Super-fast uplink speeds are critical to fully realize 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.”
TPG is planning to switch off its 3G services within the country by December 2023.
