Mobile: Telekom starts with measurements for LTE Advanced and 5G

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017 | Gadgets

Deutsche Telekom and its Leipzig University of Applied Sciences (HfTL) conduct reference surveys for the planning and preparation of the introduction of LTE Advanced and 5G. The Telekom announced on 6 September 2017. The nationwide project starts in Leipzig at different locations.

According to the figures, inner cities, suburban and rural areas as well as along the motorway are considered. The first measurements start in the east of Leipzig near the Fern report tower Holzhausen. At a later date, measurements are taking place in Frankfurt am Main as well as in the Cologne / Bonn area.
The reference measurements are intended to improve the planning tools for the expansion of mobile radio systems in higher frequency ranges.
"With the so-called line-of-site measurements, we calibrate our measuring systems and ensure that the results of the subsequent measurements can also be transferred correctly and error-free for post-processing, thus providing the necessary basis for further enhancing the accuracy of the planning software" , explained Jens Klinger, research associate at HfTL.
Telekom with 500 MBit / s
The Telekom had announced at the IFA in Berlin, in their mobile network now data transfer rates of 500 MBit / s to offer. When operators use more frequencies for LTE, significantly higher data transmission rates are achievable. With LTE Advanced + more than 1 GBit / s is possible. LTE Advanced Pro stands for carrier aggregation over three to five-fold and high-MIMO beyond 4×4 and a higher modulation rate for air transmission over 64 QAM, the next level would then be 256 QAM.

5G is intended to provide at least one data transfer rate of 100 Mbps for the end user anywhere in the network. The new mobile radio standard is expected to reach 10 GB / s by 2020 and 20 GB / s for some applications, with a very low latency of less than 1 millisecond and high availability. Globally, 100 billion mobile phones will be accessible at the same time.
