Telecommunications equipment supplier Huawei has partnered with China Mobile’s Shanghai unit to launch the 5G Digital Indoor System in the city’s Hongqiao Railway Station.
The digital indoor system, expected to be deployed by the end of the year, will offer fast 5G network services to all passengers.
The 5G network involves high-bandwidth, low-latency and massive connections. However, it utilises high-frequencies where signalling becomes weaker while penetrating buildings, which poses a challenge when offering next-generation connectivity in indoor locations with a large number of users.
Accordingly, China Mobile Shanghai will install Huawei’s 5G digital indoor system (DIS), a commercially available solution offering 5G indoor coverage.
"5G will also provide a big boost to cloud services. The railway stations of the future may be more intelligent than we can possibly imagine."
The 5G DIS will provide network coverage across the Hongqiao station, enabling thousands of people to use the network simultaneously for the internet or for making phone calls.
Huawei Wireless Solution CMO Peter Zhou said: “The 5G DIS was built using Huawei chips, integrated designs and high-performance antennas.
“It leads the industry in terms of performance, specification and technologies.”
During the launch event, the 5G DIS offered a 1.2Gbps peak rate, which will enable a passenger using the system to download a 2GB high-definition film in less than 20 seconds.
Additionally, it will offer high-speed connectivity, 4K HD video calling and multi-way ultra-HD video uploading services while they are at the station.
One of Asia’s biggest traffic hubs, Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station manages more than 60 million passengers annually.
Zhou added: “5G will also provide a big boost to cloud services. The railway stations of the future may be more intelligent than we can possibly imagine.”
