Tallink, Telia, Ericsson and Intel created a 5G test and exploration area at the Port of Tallinn. This is one of the first operational 5G trial networks with an ecosystem of partners, customers and consumers, Ericsson announced.
“It is important to stress that this was a test solution that enabled us to test the technology of and cooperation between different parties – Telia, Tallink, Ericsson, Intel,” Telia Eesti’s 5G program lead Mattias Männi told technology portal Geenius. During the tests, speeds of more than 500 Mbps were achieved.
The solution tested uses Ericsson’s 5G radio trial system consisting of 5G antenna integrated radio and baseband, in conjunction with the Intel® 5G Mobile Trial Platform to transfer passenger data traffic along with data from the ship’s own information and communications systems to a millimeter wave and extends Telia’s mobile network to 5G.
Testing and exploring 5G use cases in real life environment gives Ericsson developers practical knowledge and feedback on the new technology helping the company to really meet the customer needs and expectations.
