EE and Huawei show off 5G network architecture with all the bells and whistles

A UK lab showcase by EE using Huawei kit is laying claim to a breakthrough in end-to-end 5G network architecture testing.

The demo featured a host of 5G buzzword name-dropping. It’s being positioned as a major step forward for NFV as the core network is fully virtualized on commercial-off-the-shelf hardware. EE claims to have managed consistent download speeds of 2.8 Gbps with the help of a 5G NR 64×64 Massive MIMO active antenna using the 3.5 GHz test spectrum band.

“We’re using our experience in cutting edge 4G technologies and our dedicated partnership approach to ensure technology leadership in 5G,” said Tom Bennett, EE Director of Network Services & Devices. “The network architecture we’ve proven today is a huge step forward, and will drive our ambitious rollout timetable to be first for 5G.”

That’s it really. EE made a video for any people still in doubt about its general 5G awesomeness. We can probably have a good guess at who paid for it though.
