On December 5th, the second branch of the BRT Shuanglin North Branch Road in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, the country’s first 5G bus slowly entered, marking the official entry of Chengdu into the 5G bus era. It is also the first trial commercial appliance in 5G field. At the same time, with the opening of the 5G bus, Chengdu is expected to become the first city in China to open 5G.
It is reported that China Telecom achieved full coverage of 28KM of Chengdu Second Ring Road through 5G high speed, low delay and far distance connection, and took the lead in realizing 5G field trial commercial operation in the country. On a bus with a speed of 40km/h, the real-time peak rate of the 5G network reaches 2375mbps, which is equivalent to the simultaneous download speed of 20 100M optical fibers, and a Blu-ray movie can be downloaded in just a few seconds. This is also the largest 5G field application in the country so far. The general public can take the 5G experience by appointment.
In order to test the real speed of the 5g on the bus, China Telecom placed 16 mobile phones that simultaneously broadcast high-definition video in front of the Shuanglin North branch of the Second Ring Road. The on-site telecom instructor said that all mobile video networks come from 5G base stations on the viaduct directly in front of the Shuanglin North Branch Road bus stop. Even if the 5G bus is far from the base station, the 16 mobile phones do not appear to be stuck, achieving smooth HD video playback. It is reported that there are 61 base stations along the second ring.
“The theoretical peak rate of 5G is 10Gbps, which is 66 times that of 4G”. China Telecom built the country’s first large-scale all-optical network city, the country’s first Giga provincial capital city and built a new generation of intelligent intelligent network, opened the province’s first 5G base station, and established the country’s first carrier-grade 5G open experiment in Chengdu. This time, the opening of the country’s first 5G boutique line has opened a new chapter in Chengdu to create a 5G innovative city.
When 5G commercialization has always been the focus of public attention. This is not the first attempt of China Telecom Sichuan Company to let 5G enter the lives of the people. In August, China Telecom Sichuan Company opened the first in Sichuan and was the first small-scale 5G experimental network based on international standards in Chengdu.
