Communications technology firm Ericsson on Friday showcased the first-ever live 5G end-to-end demonstration in India. The demo is part of the company's ongoing efforts to build a robust 5G ecosystem in the country. The demonstration using Ericsson's 5G test bed and 5G New Radio (NR) delivered a throughput of 5.7 Gbps and ultra-low latency of 3 millisecond.

According to a latest Ericsson study, 5G technology will enable a $27.3 billion revenue potential for the Indian telecom operators by 2026.

"We are strengthening our commitment to the Indian market by pioneering the first live 5G demonstration in the country. The 5G technology showcase has been organised in the direction of creating a robust 5G ecosystem as the government plans to have 5G network roll out by 2020," said Nunzio Mirtillo, Head of Market Area-SE Asia, Oceania and India, Ericsson.

The demonstration also featured 5G use cases and live demonstration of essential technologies on the road to 5G like Gigabit LTE (1 GBPS download speeds) with License Assisted Access (LAA) technology.

The LAA live demo highlighted how this technology can leverage wireless network resources using higher frequency bands on a small cell architecture.
