Wednesday 11 September 2019 | 13:22 CET | News

Mobile operator Orange Poland, in cooperation with Ericsson, has launched its 5G test network in Warsaw. The network enables download speeds of almost 900 Mbps.

This is the first 5G testing of such scale carried out outdoors in the city and Poland. Orange Poland and Ericsson have deployed nine 5G base stations in the neighbourhoods of Ochota and Powisle in the capital city. The network works on 80 MHz in the 3.6-3.8 GHz range.

5G base stations were deployed to form a complete 5G network, able to switch between sites without losing the connection and take advantage of the LTE backbone network of the operator. All 5G base stations are connected to the backbone network by 10 Gbps fibre links. Equipment from Ericsson using the non-standalone architecture is used.  

Subscribers of the operator holding 5G smartphones or routers are able to access the network.

Orange Poland earlier started testing the 5G technology in Gliwice and Zakopane. The equipment from Ericsson is used in Zakopane, and the operator cooperates with Huawei in Gliwice.
