Telekom Sets New World Record in Mobile Radio Technology

Telekom has achieved a groundbreaking milestone in mobile radio technology by setting a new world record of 12 gigabits per second during testing in Alzey. Surpassing current 5G networks by twelvefold, this achievement is a significant advancement in mobile radio speeds.

The key to Telekom’s unprecedented speeds lies in tapping into the relatively untapped 6 GHz frequency spectrum. While this spectrum is not widely used in mobile communications yet, it holds immense potential for the future of wireless connectivity. This achievement in speed sets the stage for a crucial discussion on integrating the 6 GHz spectrum into mobile networks at the upcoming World Radiocommunication Conference in November.

Telekom’s achievement in mobile connectivity is a major step towards addressing the increasing demand for faster and more robust mobile connections. Through the combination of a 6 GHz antenna with their existing 5G infrastructure operating on the 3.6 GHz frequency band, Telekom was able to reach speeds of up to 12.3 gigabits per second. This technique, known as “channel bundling” or “carrier aggregation,” paves the way for the integration of the 6 GHz spectrum into telecommunication networks.

The 6 GHz frequency spectrum is particularly suited for rapid data transport, especially in densely populated urban areas. Telekom’s tests in Alzey demonstrated the potential of this spectrum to revolutionize mobile communications in urban environments.

As the telecom industry continues to modernize its networks, the integration of the 6 GHz spectrum is pivotal. This integration has the potential to enable even faster smartphones and mobile devices in the future. Telekom’s achievement and ongoing research open doors for improved wireless connectivity worldwide.
