Deutsche Telekom plans to continue to be a frontrunner with regards to 5G development, which it claims to have been during 2016. According to Deutsche Telekom Board Member Europe & Technology Claudia Nemat, the operator showed the world's first end-to-end multivendor 5G system at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last year and reached two notable records: the world first sub one millisecond latency in an end-to-end Network Slice as part of the Barcelona demonstration and achieved up to 70 Gigabit per second multi-user connection speeds during the highest mmWave access capacity demonstration. For 2017, the operator expects that 5G focus will be on commercialization of NB-IoT applications with sensor based connectivity according to Deutsche Telekom's CTO Bruno Jacobfeuerborn. The operator plans to continue to roll-out of NB IoT end-to-end systems on its live networks in the rest of its footprint following the example of Germany, the Netherlands and Greece.
