Telenor and Huawei Jointly Announce First 5G Demo in Norway

Telenor Group and Huawei have jointly announced the first 5G based E-band multi-user MIMO demonstration in Norway. A Joint Desktop Study will provide insights and learning to identify necessary update steps from 4G to 5G technologies in Telenor’s network and will be operated through the Telenor and Huawei Joint Innovation Center.

E-band multi-user MIMO can provide over 20 Gbps for a single user. Working as a supplementary low frequency band, it drastically enhances the user experience of eMBB (enhanced Mobile Broadband). The maximum speed reached by the demo so far has been recorded at 70 Gbps.

The demo was attended and  inaugurated by the Norwegian Minister of Transport and Communications, Mr. Ketil Solvik-Olsen.
