Vodafone, Huawei extend 5G coverage range in Milan trial

Tuesday 21 November 2017 | 09:56 CET | News
Vodafone Italia and Huawei have announced the completion of a technique to improve the range of high frequency spectrum as part of their pre-standard 5G trials in Milan. The companies recently revealed that they had reached download speeds of 2.7Gbps and a latency of just over a millisecond in the first live end-to-end 5G data connection in Italy. They have now used the same E2E test network to pioneer a new approach to improve the coverage range of the high frequency 3.7GHz spectrum made available for the pre-standard 5G trial by Italy's Ministry of Economic Development (MISE).
