Nokia, Qualcomm and UScellular hit extended-range 5G world record over mmWave

Nokia, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and UScellular have achieved a world record extended range over millimeter Wave (mmWave) of more than 10km utilizing a 5G extended-range mmWave solution on a commercial network. This milestone paves the way to bring extended range 5G service with massive capacity and low latency to even more regions across the U.S., including rural areas.

The field trial, which utilized Nokia’s AirScale baseband and mmWave Radios in the 28 GHz (n261) band, was conducted on UScellular’s commercial network in Grand Island, Nebraska. The companies jointly tested multiple locations with different scenarios, measuring distance, throughput and latency.

This milestone was achieved at a world record distance of ~10km with average downlink speeds of ~1 Gbps, and uplink speeds reaching approximately 57 Mbps. Additionally, ~750 Mbps downlink speed was recorded at a distance of >11km.
