The company said it had used 16-layer Multi-User MIMO 256 QAM with 6UEs over 100MHz to achieve this result in what was the first such trial in the US.
Kevin Zvokel, head of Networks at Ericsson North America, said: “Exceeding 5Gbps on C Band spectrum sets high expectations for mid-band 5G deployments in the US.
"Ericsson is prepared to help our customers deploy 5G infrastructure now with superior performance and coverage to deliver the full potential of 5G.”
The company said C Band comprised the mid-band spectrum, made up of 500Mhz between 3.7 and 4.2 GHz, that was very important in 5G deployment, especially in the US.
Mid-band spectrum blends extended coverage with increased capacity and will help 5G use cases, like connected factories, smart cities, and virtual reality gaming.
It is used by most countries and an upcoming C Band auction for 280MHz at the end of the year is awaited.
The test setup was tested by field research and consulting services Signals Research Group whose president. Michael Thelander, said: “The throughput demonstrated by the Ericsson demo network establishes a new benchmark for network performance and showcases the benefits that will be available to the market when mid-band networks are available.
"5G in mid-band networks in the US will be a fantastic boon to enterprise and consumers. It is crucial that US operators have access to reliable radio technology to deploy these networks.”
