A1 Telekom Austria recently conducted the first 5G live data connection in the lower Austrian town of Gmünd. Together with technology partner Nokia, A1 has equipped three transmitters with the upcoming 5G technology, ensuring future 5G coverage of the rural urban area of the community. This live call on the A1 network represents the next milestone on the way to the new mobile generation. 5G cells are not only characterized by peak data rates up to 10 Gbps, but also fast latencies and extremely low power consumption. 5G creates the basis for real-time communication between mobile devices and thus for innovations in areas such as mobility, transport or Industry 4.0. The 5G network implemented in Gmünd uses 3.5 GHz frequencies to be auctioned and MMimo technology, which significantly increases mobile network throughput, capacity and coverage.
