An Italian trial of 5G mmWave for fixed wireless has achieved a record 1Gbps over a distance of 6.5km.

Italian telco TIM conducted the trial in Rome in conjunction with technology suppliers Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies .

Running on TIM's live network, the trial involved Ericsson's AIR 5322 5G mmWave high power antenna-integrated radio with the company's extended range software, and the Casa (formerly NetComm) AurusAI CPE.

AurusAI, described as the industry's first high-power 5M mmWave CPE, incorporates Qualcomm's Snapdragon X55 5G modem-RF System and QTM527 extended-range mmWave antenna module.

The trial achieved 1Gbps for UDP traffic, and 700Mbps on the TCP-based Ookla Speedtest.

TIM sees the technology as a way to deliver fast broadband to areas that are not served by optical fibre.

A further test will be carried out in Front, a town in the Turin province. A 5G millimetre-wave site has been equipped with a high-capacity radio link connection to allow selected users to try out the 5G mmWave fixed wireless service.

The plan is to extend the trial to other industrial districts.
