On Tuesday, June 8th, Nokia, Qualcomm and UScellular announced that they have achieved a world record of extended range over mmWave of more than 10km utilizing 5G extended-range millimeter wave (mmWave) solution on commercial network.
This milestone opens the way to bring 5G service at an extended range with massive capacity and low latency to even more regions across the US, including rural areas.
The field trial utilized Nokia’s AirScale Baseband and mmWave radios in 28Ghz (n261) band which was conducted on UScellular’s commercial network.
The milestone was achieved at world record distance of 10km with average downlink speeds of ~1 Gbpds and uplink speeds of approximately 57Mbps with additional ~750Mbps downlink speed recorded at the distance of >11km.
5G mmWave will help close the digital divide and offer extreme capacity throughout rural, suburban urban areas. This key milestone demonstrates that Nokia’s 5G extended-range mmWave technology and Qualcomm® Fixed Wireless Access Platform gen 1 enable mobile carriers like UScellular to bridge the connectivity gap in previously unserved or underserved locations.
