Orange and Ericsson have conducted the first test of 5G technology in real outdoor surroundings in Spain, reaching speeds of 12 to 17Gbps at street level, reports EFE. The trial was conducted outside Ericsson's Spanish headquarters on calle Retama in central Madrid, with the companies using a 5G base station weighing 300 kilograms as well as Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) and complex beamforming technology to simulate customer experience at street level. Average speeds were 15Gbps while latency was reduced to under 1 millisecond, compared to 20 mls for 4G and 800 mls for 3G.
