Rogers to trial 5G in Toronto and Ottowa with Ericsson

Monday 16 April 2018 | 15:38 CET | News
Rogers has signed a multi-year contract with Ericsson aimed at developing networks for 5G. Working with Ericsson, Rogers will trial 5G in Toronto and Ottawa, in addition to select cities over the next year. The operator’s plan includes the continued rollout of its Gigabit LTE network with the latest technology including 4x4 MIMO, four-carrier aggregation and 256 QAM. The company will boost and densify its network with small cells and macro sites across the country. 

At the Rogers Centre, the companies demonstrated multiple live 5G examples as a part of Rogers 5G testing programme. Participants wore virtual reality (VR) glasses to toss a baseball back and forth, virtually shop in a retail store, and control robots with real-time responsiveness. Rogers also demonstrated Quad-band Licensed Assisted Access (LAA) on Gigabit LTE to show how LAA provides high bandwidth, simultaneously across several devices.
