Ericsson has announced that it will achieve a data transfer rate of 40 Gbps during a test of the millimeter-wave wireless backhaul (mmWave) in partnership with Deutsche Telekom. The study, which took place at Deutsche Telekom's service center in Athens, was used to show that "wireless backhaul connections provide an enhanced customer experience in the 5G era," Ericsson said. Latency was under 100 microseconds, the network giant said, meaning it fits into the latency requirements for 5G networks. The study covered a distance of 1.4 km and used the microwave solution Mini-Link 6352 and the router 6000 from Ericsson. "Although fiber is an important part of our portfolio, this is not the only option for backhaul and we have demonstrated with our partners. Fiber-like performance is also possible with wireless backhauling / X-Haul solutions," said Alex Jinsung Choi, SVP of Deutsche Telekom for strategy and technology. "This is an important addition to our portfolio of high-performance and high-performance transportation options for the 5G era."
According to Ericsson boss of Product Area Networks Per Narvinger, the study also shows that higher capacity microwave backhaul will be an important requirement for high quality mobile broadband services when 5G becomes a commercial reality. Deutsche Telekom is also working with Telefonica Deutschland to connect their mobile and fiber networks. In October, an expanded agreement was announced linking around 5,000 Telefonica Germany's base stations to Deutsche Telekom's fiber optic backhaul, which would allow 5G upgrades in the future.
The two had already signed a mobile backhaul contract in 2011. Dirk Wössner, CEO of Telekom Deutschland, called the expansion "an important step in securing the future viability of the German mobile communications infrastructure". "The resources we save are dedicated directly to our own network upgrades and the development of 5G," said Wössner. "Deutsche Telekom is building and operating by far the largest fiber-optic network in Germany." The use of our infrastructure together with Telefonica … will benefit Germany and millions of people. "Markus Haas, CEO of Telefonica Germany, added that the existing infrastructure should be used and not built by itself accelerates the expansion of the mobile network, so that" a significant part of our mobile base stations for the future 5G standard can be brought into shape "This will allow our customers to benefit directly from a more powerful mobile phone network and a better user experience." Deutsche Telekom has upgraded its network to 5G, signing a five-year deal with Ericsson in December 2017 to lay the foundations for their mobile network. important to "create step towards 5G". As part of the partnership, Ericsson will be offering its Multi-Standard Radio Access Network (RAN) with its Baseband 6630 product and two-way radios for both micro and small cells in two market segments across Germany together with Ericsson Network Manager. Ericsson also offers hardware and software solutions and support. "We've listened to Deutsche Telekom and we know how urgent it is to have a 5G enabled infrastructure to be at the forefront of customer service in Germany, we can deploy multiple standards on the same baseband hardware and upgrade to a 5G through a simple software download to the radio pages, "said Ericsson Senior Vice President and Head of Market Area Europe and Latin America Arun Bansal at the time. "These deliveries will leverage the experience of our worldwide 5G operations to ensure that Deutsche Telekom has the most advanced hardware and software in the industry." The telecommunications technologist of Deutsche Telekom, Bruno Jacobfeuerborn, ZDNet previously said that Germany's largest mobile network for 5G is ready. The live network for 5G NR tests in Berlin is the first in Europe to be used in commercial locations. The Berlin network of Deutsche Telekom, which was launched in October 2017 with the 5G Haus development program, was set up in cooperation with Chinese network giant Huawei. Deutsche Telekom also worked with Intel at 5G, using its x86 chipset and 5G Mobile test platform, and with SK Telecom on interconnected network technology and the application of the quantum-proof system of the South Korean telecommunications network in its test network.
