Huawei and Sunrise showcase fastest 5G connection in Switzerland

2017-12-22 10:57:58

Huawei and Sunrise have jointly showcased the large scope of 5G use cases on a 5G E2E Network.

Using cloud-based end-to-end applications, 5G performance capability was demonstrated with virtual reality, 360-degree panoramic live video and 12 parallel 4K video streams on 65-inch UHD TVs. The download data throughput was 3.28Gbit/s, the highest ever measured for a mobile Internet link with 3.5GHz.
The fifth generation of mobile network technology facilitates many new key functions. As shown by the 5G demo staged by Sunrise and Huawei, one 5G mobile wireless connection could easily replace the wired Internet access in a multi-unit dwelling with 12 households. Even with 12 parallel data-intensive 4K TV streams, which consume about 750Mbit/s, there is still a lot of spare capacity in this early 5G phase. This would allow each household to use a number of additional Internet connections at the same time. 

Sunrise CEO Olaf Swantee said, “We are very proud that Huawei has chosen Sunrise to build up that large 5G demonstration in our HQ in Zurich. We are the unlimited company and we are already driving digitalization today with the best 4G network and the highest area coverage in Switzerland.

5G will be a game changer and to me, it is another important step up. Being the leading wireless provider, we naturally have set high goals for the fifth generation of mobile network technology. We are looking forward to a successful future collaboration and implementation with the Huawei team.” 

“We have already demonstrated 5G at various global events but what we managed to show here with Sunrise is unprecedented and impressively demonstrates the performance capability of 5G. It’s a full commitment from Huawei to make sure that Sunrise can keep the leading position in the mobile network with 5G in the future,” said Huawei Switzerland CEO Xiao Haijun.
