TWS 2016 Announces AT&T and Ericsson World Debut of 5G Tech

Thursday, October 06, 2016

Texas Wireless Summit 2016 is thrilled to announce that this year's event will feature the first-ever public demonstration of AT&T and Ericsson's 5G millimeter wave technology. 

Millimeter wave is an essential and fundamental component for 5G mobile networks and AT&T's plans. This 5G demo will showcase the possibility and feasibility of millimeter wave radio access technology for the cellular networks of the future. Developed by Ericsson, the new system incorporates key 5G technologies: large system bandwidth, phased arrays with ultra-fast beam steering, feedback-based hybrid precoding, multi-user MIMO, dynamic beam tracking and beam acquisition. 

Over the past several months, AT&T and Ericsson have done extensive lab and field testing to optimize the performance of their system. Some specific tests and features that will be demonstrated at this year's TWS include: multi-Gbps of bandwidth, multiple 4K HD video streams, multi-user MIMO and dynamic beam tracking and acquisition.
