Singtel, Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. today announced the successful achievement of a maximum upload speed of 1.6Gbps on 5G millimetre wave. By aggregating the 5G mmWaves through four carriers and balancing the upload and download patterns, Singtel was able to achieve these speeds on its network using a test device powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon® X65 5G Modem-RF System.

Industry applications in areas like manufacturing, transportation, healthcare, entertainment and news production often require higher uplink capacity than that of typical consumer mobile users.  With balanced pattern structure configuration, Singtel is able to effectively vary the uplink and downlink throughput and provide a higher uplink ratio for 5G mmWave, thus increasing the uplink peak cell throughput. This is a major boost for enterprises where use cases that require 5G high upload speeds can be enabled in a flexible, reliable, and secure way.

Tay Yeow Lian, Managing Director (Networks), Consumer Singapore, Singtel, said, “This achievement is significant and timely in supporting enterprises who are increasingly needing faster upload speeds to support the transfer of large volumes of data or process complex applications such as heavy video streaming applications for high-precision quality control and manufacturing operations. Together with our tailored 5G network with mobile edge core solution ensures high-speed uninterrupted connectivity and massive bandwidth, enterprises can increase their operational efficiency and deliver better services to their customers.”

“Qualcomm Technologies recognises the growing demand of enterprises and consumers for higher uplink speeds to address their various needs.” said ST Liew, Vice President of Qualcomm CDMA Technologies Asia-Pacific Pte. Ltd and President of Qualcomm, Taiwan, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. “We have closely collaborated with industry partners, Singtel and Ericsson, to optimize our solutions for uplink-oriented communications, which has shown positive results upon the conducted evaluation. We will continue to innovate and work with partners to further realise the use of 5G mmWave especially given the evolving needs of enterprises and consumers today.”

Martin Wiktorin, Head of Ericsson Singapore, Brunei and Philippines said, “We are delighted to collaborate with our partners Singtel and Qualcomm towards pushing the boundaries on what mmWave technology can deliver for enterprises when it comes to uplink speeds on a live deployment. A 5G network that supports high capacity, secure and reliable uplink requirements, can facilitate the digitalization of enterprises and help them realize Industry 4.0 manufacturing applications. This will enable them to enhance their productivity and competitiveness.”

With the enhanced 5G upload speed and Singtel Paragon, the industry’s first all-in-one 5G and multi-access edge compute business orchestration platform, enterprises will be better able to analyse the performance of their devices and network and increase the capability of real-time performance monitoring and feedback.
