      Deutsche Telekom and Huawei launch Europe’s first 5G network

      Deutsche Telekom has partnered with Huawei to launch Europe’s first commercial network heavily-based on what the final 5G standard is set to be.

      While 5G is yet to be officially standardised, the 3GPP standards body announced it will bring forward its plans by six months and lock down the first standards in December. This means we’ve reached a point where little change is expected and vendors can get to work on standardised 5G equipment.

      What can the UK learn from China to bolster its 5G market – and ensure its success?

      Vendors and operators across the UK are currently looking towards China, which is on track to launch commercial 5G networks by 2020, and is expected to become the world’s largest 5G market by 2025.

      A recent report from GSMA Intelligence and the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT) revealed that after 5G networks are commercially deployed in 2020, following a two-year phased testing period, the number of 5G connections in China are expected to reach 428 million by 2025. This will account for an astonishing two in five (39%) of the 1.1 billion 5G connections expected ...

      Samsung and Arqiva launch Europe’s first 5G FWA trial in central London

      Following a statement of intent back in February, Samsung and Arqiva have kicked off the first European trial of 5G Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) in central London.

      The partners chose the UK for its low broadband penetration and promising spectrum conditions. With 5G FWA being pitched as offering an alternative to fibre broadband, the UK offers a great opportunity for Samsung and Arqiva to demonstrate its possibilities.

      Three main components make up the 5G FWA system:

      Outdoor small cells will be ‘integral’ for operator networks – especially with transition to 5G

      The outdoor smart cell market will become an integral part of mobile networks, according to new analysis from iGR.

      The report argues that the main barriers to growing the outdoor small cell market have little to do with the technology itself and more to do with actual installation issues - power, backhaul, regulations, timelines, and overall cost.
