Our A1 colleagues Alexander Wachlowski and Georg Löffelmann were part of the assembly of the first 5G sender in Vienna. Read on to find out about their insights and 5Great facts from Austria and the A1 Group.
5G Launch in Austria
Internet of Things, connecting machines, people and infrastructure – whether we see this development in a critical light or welcome it curiously with open arms, it is on its way. This smart technology enables us to develop innovative products and services with added value and to implement them successfully. The A1 Team is committed to the 5th generation and 200 of our colleagues came forward to sponsor (with their face) a 5G sender of their choice in Austria to show their enthusiasm for innovation. #A1Team #MakeItHappen
5G at A1 Group
5G is hot, not only at A1 Austria. Most countries of the A1 Group are already testing the new technology.
We launched 5G on January 25th 2020.
5G tests are planned in 2020.
Using a 5G base station in Ljubljana we test functions and possibilities of 5G.
In Croatia we were first to demonstrate more than 1 Gbps and latency of 6ms on commercial mobile devices in live a 5G network.
We provide the technological premises for 5G. First tests are scheduled for 2020.
5G tests included games with short latencies and a use case on drone management in cities.
We tested several 5G use cases with 5G test frequencies. The 5G trials included streaming of 16 HD TV channels, gaming with 10 players via smartphones and a demonstration of a robot, which communicated via 5G.
