MediaTek, Ericsson place standalone 5G call on 2.6GHz band

Wednesday 15 May 2019 | 16:39 CET | News

Ericsson’s ecosystem collaboration with MediaTek resulted in a successful standalone (SA) 5G data call on a chipset on the 2.6GHz band. This is a key stepping stone for the mobile industry, bringing it closer to enabling commercial SA deployments both for 5G devices and networks, the company said in a press release.

The bi-directional call was made in a lab setting by connecting a MediaTek chipset with an Ericsson Radio System radio AIR 6488 5G using 5G NR commercial software and dual-mode 5G Cloud Core platform. The call was fully compliant with 3GPP’s Release 15 specifications for 5G from December 2018, providing maturity and better support for 5G SA commercial live network launches.

The platform, which includes 5G Core for this successful SA data call, will help to accelerate 5G commercialisation and enable fresh use cases in new segments, Ericsson said.
