Ericsson improves interaction on 5G test bed before MWC

Ericsson is looking to show off improvements to its latest 5G radio test bed, having added 5G-LTE Dual Connectivity and 5G Multipoint Connectivity to its demo line-up at the Mobile World Congress next week.

The technology is focused on interaction between mobile devices and the radio access network. 5G-LTE Dual Connectivity allows devices to hand over connection between LTE and 5G radio access coverage areas whilst 5G Multipoint Connectivity connects a mobile device to two 5G base stations simultaneously, improving bit rate performanceEricsson is looking to show off improvements to its latest 5G radio test bed, having added 5G-LTE Dual Connectivity and 5G Multipoint Connectivity to its demo line-up at the Mobile World Congress next week.

The technology is focused on interaction between mobile devices and the radio access network. 5G-LTE Dual Connectivity allows devices to hand over connection between LTE and 5G radio access coverage areas whilst 5G Multipoint Connectivity connects a mobile device to two 5G base stations simultaneously, improving bit rate performance, signal strength and resilience.

Having already achieved test speeds of 5Gbps throughput in its 5G labs, Ericsson describes these as ‘technology milestones’, and will showcase it at the MWC alongside 5G devices and high-frequency 5G radio base stations.
