Ericsson has completed 5G demo in Indonesia, including 5G test bed, 5G New Radio and use various cases, such as a motion-sensing robotic arm and live 4K video streaming – achieving downlink speed of 5.74 Gbps in Radio Access Network!
Ericsson’s 5G test environment includes all functionality required for pre-commercial trials including most important features for 5G Network, like multi-user MIMO, multi-site transmission, ultra-lean design and dynamic TDD.
Low latency and high reliability of 5G Network Standard is crucial for future 5G Network Business Use Cases, among the others:
machine to machine communication (IoT), intelligent security and health care systems and first implementations of autonomous and remote driving technology.
Ericsson demonstrated a motion-sensing robot arm that could be control in real time using hand and finger motions. Such applications could be used in various tasks, including remote surgery, road accident management and scenarios in which human presence might be unsafe (Disarming explosive charges, atomic plants maintenance, etc.)
Ericsson also demonstrated the ability of 5G to support 4K video streaming. 4K content was streamed from a server to a radio base station and then relayed to 5G user equipment and displayed on a 4K TV screen. Uninterrupted playback of 4K video requires a download speed of at least 15 Mbps. With 5G radio, a single network cell will be able to support playback of 4K video by hundreds of simultaneous users.
