Ericsson and Etisalat by e& Demonstrate 2.1 Gbps 5G Uplink Speed

Uplink speed is an important factor in 5G because it determines how quickly data can be transmitted from a mobile device to the network. In 5G, uplink speeds are particularly important because the technology is designed to support a wide range of applications.

Highlights

  • The demo was carried out using 5G dual connectivity and carrier aggregation features of Networks powered by Ericsson.
  • Ericsson combined New Dual Connectivity (NR-DC) and Carrier Aggregation (CA) software features to achieve results.
  • The high uplink data rates will enable applications like Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) etc.
