Aimed at commercial FWA applications, this trial demonstrated UHD IPTV over 5G and up to a 2Gbps capacity of Huawei’s CPE in an end-to-end 5G network. It also verified 5G FWA service research results of both sides, as well as FWA service scenarios in advance. Finally, it has laid a solid foundation for the LG U+ 5G commercial launch and set a key milestone for the development of 5G.
FWA (WTTx) is a FTTx-like wireless broadband access solution based on broadband market demand. It provides wireless broadband access services through wireless broadband technology, gives full play to the characteristics of wireless wide coverage, rapid deployment and a fiber-like experience. Under the premise of meeting family broadband services and experience, it will help operators greatly shorten their network construction cycle and save network costs.
The FWA demo used Huawei’s end-to-end 5G products, including 5G gNodeB, NG Core and 5G CPE. Using a millimeter wave 28GHz band, this demo successfully verified the UHD IPTV over 5G. In the demonstration, the video terminal through the CPE accesses the 5G network, and allows an audience to fluently watch UHD television programs, showing perfect 5G support for IPTV.
