Ericsson’s 5G indoor radio small cell solution, the Ericsson Radio Dot System, is changing public transportation experiences for China Mobile customers in the city of Shenyang. An entire subway line is connected with the solution.
Commuters and travelers on Shenyang’s subway Line 9 can access China Mobile 5G connectivity across all 22 stations on the line, powered by the Ericsson 5G Radio Dot. The 5G network has been operational for several months.
More than 900,000 passengers use the subway system in Shenyang, north east China, every day. The Ericsson 5G Radio Dot deployment on Line 9 is helping China Mobile to meet the increasing data needs from its customers – particularly in high-quality uninterrupted video and streaming traffic – in subway stations as passengers wait for, or change, traveling connections.
The Ericsson 5G Radio Dot System on Line 9 operates on various China Mobile frequencies. It provides a stable downlink of 1Gbps and a maximum transmission rate of up to 1.4Gbps. A 1GB high-definition movie could therefore be downloaded within 10 seconds.
The compact and easily deployable nature of the solution meant that Ericsson was able to install more than 500 5G Radio Dots across the 22 stations in just 20 days – 40 days ahead of schedule.Click below to share this article
