First 5G mmWave Site in Austria

"We are the first to test fast 5G in the millimeter band on our newly acquired frequencies in the real network to bring the fiber optic user experience into the world of mobile communications. Of course, this technology does not replace fiber optics but allows us to offer extreme speeds and bandwidths via 5G," says A1 Austria.

According to the official release, the mmWave radios deployed on the site will provide A1 with significant advantages, including ultra-fast 5G speeds, extremely low latency, and increased capacity.

The use of mmWave bands is crucial to support the next generation of 5G applications and services, from immersive virtual reality (VR) experiences to advanced industrial automation, said Nokia.
