5G NR: first for Qualcomm, CS and Ericsson

5G NR: first for Qualcomm, CS and Ericsson
Today chipmaker Qualcomm, US supplier Casa Systems and Sweden Ericsson announce that they have successfully completed the world's first long-range 5G NR data call using mmWave technology. It was carried out in Regional Victoria, Australia, on June 20, covering a distance of 3.8 km.

Qualcomm, Casa Systems and Ericsson for 5G NR

This is concrete demonstration of how mmWave and its suitability for Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) open the door to a number of innovations related to fixed broadband services and further opportunities in using 5G infrastructure to cover large urban, suburban and rural. These are the words of Gautam Sheoran, Senior Director and Product Management of Qualcomm Technologies.

With the introduction of the Qualcomm QTM527 mmWave antenna module within the Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF system, we are giving the opportunity to operators and OEMs to offer their customers a high-performance, multi-gigabit wide-range broadband 5G, which is simultaneously flexible and efficient, leveraging the existing 5G network infrastructure.

This important milestone represents the first step in using mmWave for long-range 5G data transfer and our collaboration with Casa Systems and Ericsson is paving the way for the implementation of fixed broadband services to ensure broad coverage in urban, suburban and rural areas.

This will allow telcos to leverage already installed and operational network assets to offer Fixed Wireless services to users, extending their range of action. It is one of the scenarios designed by the advent of 5G-related technologies.
