The companies have combined 5G (CPE) with the drone VR to demonstrate a 1.5Gbps performance from 100m altitude using the 3.5GHz spectrum band.

During a series of tests in Seoul, Huawei and LG U + have combined a VR drone with local 5G equipment to offer 1.5Gbps connectivity.

Both companies have announced that they will complete the 5G field tests in Seoul to verify IPTV 4K video technologies, dual and inter-cell connectivity.

It is the world’s first large-scale 5G network test that uses a pre-commercial test environment to deliver 5G 4K IPTV and using a virtual reality (VR) drone to demonstrate data rates between 20 Mbps and 100 Mbps.

Huawei has combined the 5G (CPE) equipment with the VR drone to demonstrate a 1.5Gbps performance from 100m altitude using the 3.5GHz spectrum band.

“This shows that Huawei will maintain its ability to provide competitive E2E 5G network products in 2018. LG U + and Huawei will continue to further investigate 5G technologies and build a robust E2E industry ecosystem to achieve business success in the next 5G era “, A spokesperson for the company said.

The test was carried out using a 3.5GHz base station and a 28GHz base station on an LG U + test base in the Korean capital, with Huawei saying that the dual connectivity solution can also be used to connect 4G base stations and 5G

“Dual connectivity is a technique that allows multiple base stations to transmit data simultaneously or alternatively to a user so they can communicate seamlessly with other users when they move between base stations,” Huawei said at the time.

LG U + had previously tested the technology in a laboratory environment between two 4G base stations.
