Docomo completes 4.5 GHz-based 5G URLLC outdoor trial with Huawei

Thursday 2 November 2017 | 10:09 CET | News
Japanese operator NTT Docomo has conducted an outdoor trial of 5G mobile capabilities for ultra-reliable low-latency communications (URLLC) using a 4.5 GHz system developed in collaboration with Huawei. According to Docomo, the trial simulated a realistic environment involving a stationary mobile terminal that received signals at distances of 0.8 to 1 km from the base station. During the trial, Docomo reports it has achieved an over-the-air latency of less than one millisecond together with a packet transmission success rate of more than 99.999 percent, which are required for URLLC as defined by 3GPP (Third Generation Partnership Project) and ITU-R (International Telecommunication Union - Radiocommunication Sector). 

Similarly, ultra-reliable low-latency communications were also achieved at distances of approximately 0.3 km to 0.6 km from the base station, when the mobile terminal was moving at approximately 25 km/h, Docomo also reported.
