Nokia, Hutchison 3 Indonesia complete first 5G end-to-end live network trial Featured

By

Nokia and mobile communication service provider Hutchison 3 Indonesia (3ID) have completed the first 5G end-to-end live network trial in Indonesia.

The trial, which was conducted on a Nokia network on millimetre wave frequencies, demonstrated the 3ID network’s ability to support end-to-end 5G deployment.

The trial saw multiple tests conducted on the 28 GHz spectrum, obtaining the highest data download speeds of up to 1.62 Gbps with 11ms latency while upload speeds of 75.9 Mbps were measured.

The trial also included a voice call test, which was initiated on the 5G trial network and realised over VoLTE (voice over existing LTE network) to demonstrate how basic telephony services would be handled in 5G.

Nokia said on Monday the trial, which also involved the Indonesian Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, was conducted at the Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology (ITS) in Surabaya, East Java.

It focused on education-related use cases, utilising 5G technology to enable a public lecture conducted in real-time between two major cities, Surabaya and Jakarta.

And during the trial, ministry officials and academics from the ITS delivered a public lecture, with a representative from the Indonesia 5G Forum joining them via a live stream holographic projection from Jakarta.

The tests were conducted over a Nokia-built network, including radio, core and transport, providing high, unfettered download and upload speeds with low latency.

Nokia says the tests demonstrated how 5G technology can be used to give students remote access to learning materials that may be difficult to access due to physical distances – and also showed how the learning experience can be made more immersive while helping students compete with their academic peers in other locations.

It also confirmed the ability of 5G to go well beyond simple connectivity in supporting economic and social development in Indonesia.

KP Goh, Head of Indonesia at Nokia, said: “Completing the first 5G end-to-end trial in Indonesia is an important milestone. 5G is going to change just about everything – every industry, every business, and every experience – including the student experience”.

“With Nokia’s end-to-end 5G technology, Indonesia is ready to support 5G deployment now and Indonesian students are able to reap the benefits of faster connections with lower latency. With 48 commercial 5G contracts and more than 100 customer engagements, we are pleased to see the pace of 5G progress accelerating across the globe – including Indonesia.”

“This trial, powered by Nokia’s end-to-end capability, showcases how 5G technology can help students across Indonesia to have equal opportunities and compete with their peers in other countries – by connecting them to sources of knowledge from all across the world,” said Cliff Woo, Chief Executive Officer at Hutchison 3 Indonesia.

“Nokia is one of our key technology partners in Indonesia. We are pleased to have completed this important trial with Nokia. It will pave the way for the 5G journey to serve the Indonesian people and industry,” Woo concluded.
