China Mobile – at the Mobile World Congress 2017 Shanghai — will demonstrate how 5G supports new services such as telehealth, transforming emergency hospital patient care and driving new practices.
5G will enable the use of discrete network “slicing” techniques, allowing operators to serve multiple end users with a variety of services meeting different demands for latency, speed and capacity over a common 5G network infrastructure.
Nokia and China Mobile — at China Mobile’s booth at Mobile World Congress Shanghai — will show how 5G network slicing will support the reliability needs of critical applications such as telehealth.
The 5G demonstration will use Nokia 5G FIRST solution, including the Next Generation Core to communicate between ambulance and hospital staff during the transportation of an emergency patient. 5G network slicing will support telecom operators to ensure reliable transmission of high-bandwidth images, such as patient X-rays and video, in real-time, to the hospital.
Meanwhile, ZTE will launch a live 5G field test in Guangdong, deployed with China Mobile, showing an enhanced 5G Mobile Broadband (eMBB) user experience. At the 100 MHz bandwidth, the single-user rate reached 2Gbps.
China Mobile and ZTE conducted the 5G field test in Guangzhou University Town for enhancing user experience in 5G eMBB scenarios. China Mobile used ZTE’s 3.5GHz NR base station in the 5G field test in Guangzhou.
Nokia will also show its AirScale base station working with 4.9G technology to reduce network latency to less than two milliseconds, bringing performance closer to the latency levels 5G is expected to deliver.
Nokia will employ 4.9G to reduce network latency to less than two milliseconds using a feature that allows transmission time intervals to be shortened by 86 percent. This will leverage the Nokia AirScale base station, which will allow operators to support both 4.9G and 5G technology in a single unit to maximize speed and capacity as they migrate to 5G.
