Vodafone-Idea records top 5G download speed of 5.92 Gbps


Vodafone Idea (Vi), in partnership with Ericsson, has achieved a download speed as fast as 5.92 Gbps during the ongoing 5G trials in Pune.

The speed was achieved on a single test device during the 5G trials by combining the mid-band and high band 5G trial spectrum using the Ericsson massive MIMO radios, Ericsson cloud-native dual-mode 5G core for standalone architecture, and the NR-DC software.

Jagbir Singh, Chief Technology Officer, Vi said, "The trial demonstrates how Vi is constantly testing and preparing its network for new 5G based applications that will rely on the low latency, reliability, and high speeds of 5G. Given the growing consumer demand for immersive media and video streaming services, the 5G speeds that we have demonstrated will help us prepare for the mobile broadband speeds and greater network capacity requirements of customers as we are ready for ‘5G for a Better Tomorrow’ in India."

.Amarjeet Singh, Vice President and Head of Customer Unit Vi at Ericsson, said, "Achieving this technology milestone of 5.92 Gbps download speed by leveraging Ericsson’s 5G Standalone NR-DC software and cloud-native dual-mode 5G Core represents a milestone in India’s evolution to 5G Standalone with mmWave. Based on our global 5G deployment across 121 live networks, we are confident we can help our customers like Vi seamlessly evolve their network to 5G."

With the 5G standalone NR-DC software, Vi can deliver latency-sensitive and high-performing apps such as 8K video streaming and AR/VR as well as innovative new use cases for consumers and enterprises once it deploys the 5G on its commercial network.

Earlier during its 5G trials and use cases showcase in Pune, Vi had demonstrated speeds of around 4Gbps. The new speed record of 5.92 Gbps has been achieved using the government-allocated 5G spectrum of the trials.
