5G: The Greatest Show on Earth Catching the Wave - Independent Benchmark Study of the Verizon Wireless 5GTF Commercial Fixed Wireless Service - ResearchAndMarkets.com

November 19, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 19, 2018--The “Signals Ahead - 5G: The Greatest Show on Earth, Vol. 2 - Catching the Wave” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This is the first independent benchmark study of the Verizon Wireless 5GTF commercial fixed wireless service. For this study, testing took place in Houston, Texas, where the operator has deployed a 600 MHz radio channel (six,100 MHz channels) in the 28 GHz band. Samsung is the infrastructure and indoor/outdoor CPE supplier.

Report Highlights

This study was carried out with the logistical support of Accuver Americas who provided us with its suite of drive test tools. We used XCAL-M to log the data and the XCAP post-processing tool for the analysis phase of the study. SRG takes full responsibility for the data collection and the analysis provided in the report. Chipset diagnostic messages were logged while testing in a large number of locations in the vicinity of where Verizon had deployed 5GTF access points (APs). We used a combination of FTP file transfers and Internet applications to generate data. Although we tested at a few locations adjacent to the AP, most of our testing involved more challenging conditions, including NLOS and/or distances of multiple blocks away from the AP. In many cases we believe we tested outside of the intended coverage area of the AP. Consistent with the results from the initial study in January, we found that millimeter wave signals are far more resilient than we expected. We obtained usable signals, despite tree foliage, buildings, and no clear view of the AP, which we observed was always mounted on a utility pole. With a signal present, the data speeds were almost always within the advertised data rates and equally impressive in the uplink. Latency was 10 ms, plus or minus a couple milliseconds. This report is a must-read for any organization interested in 5G millimeter wave performance and the promises of 5G. Although this study was specific to the fixed wireless use case, the prospects for 5G NR are promising for eMBB, it is believed is technically and logistically easier to support.
