ZTE and Smartfren 5G demo in IndonesiaTelecom engineers of ZTE and Smartfren deployed 5G network in a logistics warehouse, and connected the 360-degree camera and the VR headset through the 5G network, transmitting images to the monitoring room in real time.

This demonstration adopts spectrum of 28GHz at 5G medium-high-frequency mmWave, and the maximum throughput using two carriers reaches 8.7Gbps, ZTE said in a statement issued on Friday.

“This demonstration case can be well applied for factory scenarios. Specifically, in case of a problem in the logistical and shipping path, a monitoring engineer can launch a drone to troubleshoot the problem at a short distance,” said Merza Fachys, president director of Smartfren,

The emergence of 5G technologies will greatly improve the automation of the real-time monitoring, improving productivity and efficiency, said Budiono Muljono, CEO of Smart.
