Australia’s TPG Telecom Limited, working in collaboration with Nokia and MediaTek, has showcased a live 360-degree video broadcast enabled by Nokia’s 5G Uplink Carrier Aggregation (CA) technology, TPG Telecom’s commercial 5G network and MediaTek’s 5G mobile chipset technology.

The Aussie telco, which provides mobile services under the Vodafone Australia banner, said the demonstration took place at Nokia’s 5G Futures Lab in Sydney, utilising solutions from Nokia’s latest energy-efficient AirScale portfolio including baseband, massive MIMO, and Remote Radio Head products, powered by its ReefShark chipset. Meanwhile, MediaTek reportedly provided its 5G mobile platform using the MediaTek M80 5G modem, which has been incorporated into the Dimensity SoC series. The demo used the combination of a 15MHz carrier on the 700MHz band and a 90MHz carrier on the 3.6GHz band using Uplink Carrier Aggregation technology to achieve a peak uplink throughput of 159Mbps.

Commenting on the development, David Yeo, General Manager of Wireless Access Networks at TPG Telecom, said: ‘This is a great demonstration of the immersive and innovative capability that TPG Telecom’s cutting-edge 5G network can deliver to consumers and businesses alike. We look forward to future collaborations with Nokia and MediaTek as we work together to unlock a new world of content and possibilities for our customers.’
