Magyar Telekom for the first time presented 5G use cases in Budapest headquarter at Krisztina korut.
The test network, operating within the 3.7 GHz spectrum, was established using pre-standard 5G equipment, prior to their commercial launch.
The test network, operating within the 3.7 GHz spectrum, was implemented with a pre-standard 5G system using Huawei Technologies’ 5G network devices, ready for commercial launch.
“Although digitization provides fantastic possibilities already now, 5G will elevate this to a new level, ensuring even better opportunities and quality of life for all of us. 5G is a genuine leap, an industrial revolution that transforms the manufacturing sector, healthcare, education, transport and almost every facet of life,” says Tibor Rekasi, CEO, Magyar Telekom.
Focus was on real time remote diagnosis via the 5G network for treating injuries of trauma patients. The hospital doctor can get real time information on the injuries of the patient with the assistance of the paramedic before the patient is transported from the scene of the accident to the hospital. In future a special medical probe would transmit recorded material in real time via the 5G network for remote, 3D imaging, which is then sent directly to the doctor or the paramedic. This way the doctor and the paramedic can both see the status of the patient, which makes it easier and faster for them to establish a diagnosis and they can start planning the necessary treatment.
Drones are able to autonomously follow a pre-established flight path, but controlling them through the mobile network and transmitting recorded material using traditional mobile network technologies has not been resolved to date in an efficient way. In cases when the drone needs to be controlled, it is mostly a WiFi signal that establishes connection between pilot and device, which, however, results in range limitations. 5G technology opens up new dimensions in the innovative use of drones, allowing, among others, for their emergency life-saving application in the near future.
Gamers can follow race cars on a track, using their AR goggles, and can see the track already with environment dependent information and statistics. 5G is used to transmit the video feed from the track to the cloud, where the positions of the race cars is done through real time object recognition, then the augmented reality content is displayed on a screen or special AR goggle. Efficient cloud upload, efficient imaging and image transmission to the AR device require high transmission speed and low latency.
