5G speeds of 1Tbps have been achieved during tests at the University of Surrey Professor Rahim Tafazolli, director of the 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) at the university explained that the 5GIC has been working on new technologies to support 5G services, which have been instrumental in producing the 1Tbps results.
“We have developed 10 more breakthrough technologies and one of them means we can exceed 1Tbps wirelessly. This is the same capacity as fibre optics but we are doing it wirelessly,” he said.
Tafazolli said that the tests were carried out in lab conditions over a distance of 100 metres using transmitters and receivers built at the university.
The plan is to take the technology outside the lab and onto the campus at the university during 2016 or 2017 before demonstrating it to the public in early 2018, ahead of rivals from South Korea, Russia and Japan.
“We need to bring end-to-end latency down to below one millisecond so that it can enable new technologies and applications that would just not be possible with 4G,” he told V3.
Ofcom hopes to have 5G networks live across the UK by 2020 to meet the ever rising demand for mobile data services. The regulator expects 5G speeds to run as high as 50Gbps.
