Finnish telecom company Nokia and TPG Telecom achieved 5G connection speeds of up to 2 Gbps by deploying TPG Telecom’s 5G mmWave spectrum during a live demonstration at the Nokia 5G Futures Lab in Sydney, Australia.
Claiming to be the fastest Australian record for 5G uplink, the speed will enable Nokia and customers such as TPG Telecom to provide low-latency services for industrial and IoT applications that rely on connectivity.
The live demonstration saw a Nokia AirScale 5G mmWave base station using TPG Telecom’s 26GHz spectrum to connect, over the air, to a 5G device powered by the Snapdragon X65 5G Modem-RF System featuring 4th generation Qualcomm QTM545 mmWave antenna units.
In addition, Nokia has deployed its Carrier Aggregation (CA) technology to take advantage of available spectrum assets. The CA setup included four component carriers of 100 MHz each in the 26 GHz band.
The solution is expected to be fully deployed next year as new hardware supporting this capability becomes available.
5G mmWave technology will create new service opportunities for both consumers and industries. For consumers, it will allow multi-user real-time multi-user ultra-high definition 8K bidirectional video streaming, and augmented reality content to smartphones or wearables for immersive experiences, according to Nokia.
Industries will benefit from massive amounts of data flowing directly from embedded IoT sensors and industrial robots over 5G, allowing real-time control of industrial processes using Edge Compute Nodes connected to 5G networks.
The concept of processor offloading over a 5G network was also demonstrated at the event with a ‘Spot’ – a 5G-connected Robot Dog – developed in collaboration with the University of Technology Sydney.
“The superior uplink speeds are essential to fully realizing the enormous benefits of 5G networks, especially as we look to emerging technologies such as augmented intelligence, machine learning, advanced sensors, and robotics that are set to transform industries and economies with great safety and productivity,” said Dr. Robert Joyce, chief technology officer at Nokia Oceania, “Efficiency results as we move into the metaverse era.”
“This demonstration is important as it shows the huge potential of 5G mobile technology and gives a glimpse of the high-speed services that will one day be available to customers and businesses across Australia,” said Giovanni Chiarelli, Chief Technology Officer, TBG Telecom.

Activate HYBRID CLOUD & REDUCE NETWORK WHITEPAPER
The hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling companies to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control you can get from on-premise infrastructure.
Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce network latency.
Research firm Markets and Markets has forecast that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from $38.27 billion in 2017 to $97.64 billion by 2023.
Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while maintaining physical control of your systems.
Cloud convergence provided by co-location facilities can enable you to take advantage of high-bandwidth, low-latency connections to the cloud as well as provide a robust connection back to your local corporate network.
Download this white paper to learn what you need to know about enabling the hybrid cloud in your organization.
