Huawei and NTT Docomo jointly demonstrated the first live-demo of 5G customer premises equipment (CPE) application at the Docomo 'Encounter the revelation of "near"-future: - 5G creates lifestyles of future' exhibition in Tokyo, Japan. In the demo, holographic video calls were realised over a network that contains 5G mmWave CPEs, marking the first successful application of a 5G CPE terminal with commercial engineering capability in Japan.

During the demonstration, the 5G core network, 5G base stations, and 5G mmWave CPEs of the 5G network involved in the joint demo are provided by Huawei. Visitors use a Microsoft HoloLens helmet to connect to the 5G network and make holographic video calls with their offsite friends. An immersive experience is created in this demo, with clear voice calls and smooth video footage free of freesing.
