Orange, Ericsson claim first 5G video transmission in real time on commercial network

Tuesday 26 February 2019 | 17:00 CET | News
Orange Spain said it completed the world's first 5G video transmission in real time on a commercial network in collaboration with Ericsson during a demo conducted at MWC 2019. The operator used Ericsson's 5G Radio NR equipment to connect its Barcelona and Madrid offices to the Fira de Barcelona venue, broadcasting a live performance of a haka, the Maori ceremonial dance, in real time to the three separate locations. Three Ericsson AIR6488 active antennas were connected to Orange's core network via the N78 (3.5GHz) band for the trial.
