Bouygues Telecom to launch 5G pilot with Huawei in Bordeaux

Tuesday 27 February 2018 | 13:02 CET | News

Huawei has expanded its partnership with Bouygues Telecom with a new agreement to test 5G services in the city of Bordeaux. The news follows the recent announcement from French telecom regulator Arcep that Bouygues Telecom has been granted a temporary licence in the 3.5 GHz band (3400 - 3800 MHz) to test 5G in Bordeaux, Lyon and Villeurbanne.

The authorisation covers a trial across three sites located in the Bordeaux metropolitan area, which will take place later this year, between May and September. The pilot will deploy multi-site coverage using Huawei's end-to-end (E2E) 5G platform.
