Germany: Thales and Vodafone use 5G to conduct driverless train

The driverless trials are being accomplished at the Smart Rail Connectivity Campus in Erzgebirge, Germany, making use of Thales' Lucy lab train, while Vodafone has actually installed the first  5G base stations in the Erzgebirge region of Saxony, Germany.

To enable Lucy to be regulated from another location, Vodafone makes use of the 5G modern technology Network Slicing, which aids different online networks share a physical network framework, but supplies a separate 5G network for railway tests. This indicates that remote-controlled mobile radio abilities are always available to manage the train remotely, even if various users in the immediate vicinity additionally browse the web. Furthermore, the data is processed straight on-site in a little data centre in the immediate vicinity of the mobile base station by means of a Mobile Edge Computing (MEC). Due to the fact that the data does not have to traverl  long distances, it can be processed without delay. The 5G modern technology makes it possible for data to be transfered at thoughput higher than 500MB/second on the track and also lowers the latency, to less than 10 milliseconds.

Thales has actually offered the control and also safety systems for the 5G job in the Erzgebirge. This consists of the installment of the envirionment and also sensing units, with a remote control system for the train in cooperation with the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) and also Railergy.

“We’re putting 5G on the tracks for the first time,” says Mr Alexander Saul, managing director corporate customers with Vodafone Germany. “Together with our industrial partners, we are examining which new applications will be possible with 5G.”

5G's major interest relies on B2B markets. This next generation of mobile innovation will be the structure for the change of B2B and will be the foundation of commercial operations, which will certainly benefit the rail sector specifically.

T-Mobile nationwide 5G coverage across US using 600Mhz

T-Mobile has flipped the switch on its 5G network, setting it live over areas of the US that it says covers 200 million people. While the network is supposedly live today, no one is going to be using it until later this week: the first two phones to support it go on sale this Friday.

The “nationwide” 5G deployment relies on a slower form of 5G, using T-Mobile’s 600MHz spectrum. This “low-band” 5G essentially takes airwaves like the ones used for LTE and bundles them together with some new technology to deliver faster speeds.

T-Mobile doesn’t offer specifics on what kind of speeds you’ll see on the new network, and the actual improvements will vary a lot by location. “In some places, 600 MHz 5G will be a lot faster than LTE. In others, customers won’t see as much difference,” 

Because T-Mobile is relying on LTE-like spectrum — which travels relatively far — the carrier is able to deploy it over a wide swath of the country. It’s the first major wireless carrier to claim nationwide 5G coverage.

On Friday, T-Mobile will begin selling the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition for $899.99 and the Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G for $1299.99. Both are capable of connecting to its 600MHz 5G network, and all T-Mobile and Metro plans include 5G access. The phones do not support mmWave.

Germany: Bosch applies for 5G frequencies to build local networks in factories 

Bosch said that it has applied for 5G frequencies to build private networks on its campuses at selected German locations. The company has initially applied for 5G operating licences for the plant in Stuttgart-Feuerbach and the research campus in Renningen.

Bosch plans to build local 5G networks in collaboration with selected partners over the course of 2020. It will conduct tests at its plant and at its research campus in Renningen to prepare to roll 5G for the manufacturing operations.

Companies can start to apply to use 5G frequencies in the 3.7-3.8 GHz range on industrial campuses. Local frequencies enable firms to build their own private networks, rather than rely on telecommunications providers to create networks.

WRC-19 identifies additional frequency bands for 5G

Delegates at the World Radiocommunication Conference 2019 (WRC-19) have identified additional radio-frequency bands for International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT), which will facilitate the development of fifth-generation (5G) mobile networks.

New Resolutions approved at WRC-19 pointed out that ultra-low latency and very high bit-rate applications of IMT will require larger contiguous blocks of spectrum than those available in frequency bands that had previously been identified for use by administrations wishing to implement IMT. They also pointed that harmonized worldwide bands for IMT are desirable in order to facilitate global roaming and the benefits of economies of scale

Additional bands identified to enable 5G deployment

While identifying the frequency bands 24.25-27.5 GHz, 37-43.5 GHz, 45.5-47 GHz, 47.2-48.2 and 66-71 GHz for the deployment of 5G networks, WRC-19 also took measures to ensure an appropriate protection of the Earth Exploration Satellite Services, including meteorological and other passive services in adjacent bands.

In total, 17.25 GHz of spectrum has been identified for IMT by the Conference, in comparison with 1.9 GHz of bandwidth available before WRC-19. Out of this number, 14.75 GHz of spectrum has been harmonized worldwide, reaching 85% of global harmonization.

In addition, WRC-19 has also defined a plan of studies to identify frequencies for new components of 5G. As an example, to facilitate mobile connectivity by High Altitude IMT Base Stations (HIBS). HIBS may be used as a part of terrestrial IMT networks to provide mobile connectivity in underserved areas where it is difficult to be covered by ground-based IMT base stations at a reasonable cost.

IMT-2020, the name used in ITU for the standards of 5G, is expected to continue to be developed from 2020 onwards, with 5G trials and commercial activities already underway to assist in evaluating the candidate technologies and frequency bands that may be used for this purpose.

The first full-scale commercial deployments for 5G are expected sometime after IMT-2020 specifications are in force.

ITU will continue to work towards providing stable international regulations, sufficient spectrum and suitable standards for IMT-2020 and the core network to enable successful 5G deployments at the regional and international levels.

Next steps

An overall presentation of WRC-19 results is still under preparation, but it is already evident that ITU is facilitating the development of 5G around the world.

In parallel, the ITU group responsible for IMT-2020 or 5G is continuing the evaluation of the proposed technologies that will allow network operators to offer 5G performances to their users for the next decade.

This evaluation will be completed in early February 2020 and will be followed by the finalization of the IMT-2020 standards.

ITU will make sure that the standards supporting all 5G applications will be in place in 2020 for the benefit of the entire telecommunication community.

France will delay 5G spectrum auction until March 2020

The French government will delay the process of awarding 5G spectrum until at least March 2020, three months later than the original date, Reuters reported, citing two sources close to the matter.

The delay is mainly due to disagreements between the French finance ministry and telecommunications regulator Arcep over the exact amount of 5G spectrum to be auctioned and the floor price of the auction process, according to the report.

“All positions haven’t yet converged between Arcep and the government,” one of the two sources said. “It shouldn’t take much more time now, but it’s when one gets into the final details of the procedure that difficulties emerge.”

According to the report, the floor price will be close to 1.5 billion euros ($1.66 billion).

France is falling behind other European countries in terms of 5G technology, with the U.K., Spain, Germany and Italy all having completed 5G spectrum auctions and the first services already live. However, Arcep has granted local operators licenses for 5G tests and authorities confirmed that 5G services will be launched in 2020.

The country’s four operators Orange, SFR, Iliad and Bouygues are all expected to take part in the upcoming 5G auction.

In July, Arcep had launched a public consultation on its draft procedure for awarding licenses to use frequencies in the 3.4-3.8 GHz band in France. Arcep said that this spectrum band had been identified in Europe as the “core” 5G band. The regulator said that the contributions to the public consultation will enable Arcep to finalize the procedure and the terms of allocation.

The regulator had also said that the use of this core band will be completed by other bands of varying properties, each of which will help unleash the full potential of 5G. These include the 700 MHz band, which was already allocated to operators in France in 2015, and the 26 GHz band, which will be allocated at a later date.

In the draft document being submitted for public consultation, Arcep initially aims to allocate 310 megahertz of frequencies, covering metropolitan France.

Arcep is proposing a two-part allocation procedure that is not based solely on financial bids. The procedure will include a first part, whereby up to four operators will be able to obtain additional blocks of spectrum in exchange for additional commitments, before the auctions carried out in the second part would allow them to obtain additional frequencies.

Arcep’s draft procedure stipulates that all applicants will be subject to a series of obligations, particularly with respect to regional coverage. Arcep proposes to require that each operator launch 5G services in at least two cities before the end of 2020, and to then impose a demanding trajectory to support the deployment of 3.4-3.8 GHz band equipment during the following years: 3,000 sites in 2022; 8,000 sites in 2024; and 12,000 sites in 2025.

By 2022, at least 75% of cell sites must be 5G-capable, a figure that will rise to 100% by 2030, the regulator said.
