Kathmandu, May 2: China Mobile and Huawei have jointly taken 5G connectivity to a new height by bringing the network to the summit of Mount Everest upon the completion of world’s highest 5G base station at an altitude of 6500 meters. Together with the launch of the Gigabit optical fiber network at the attitude of 6,500 meters, Huawei enables China Mobile to run its dual Gigabit network on Mount Everest, read a press release issued on Thursday.
The Gigabit optical fiber network was launched coinciding with the 60th anniversary of the first successful arrival at Mount Everest from the northern slope, and the 45th anniversary of China’s first official accurate measurement and announcement of Mount Everest, according to the press release.
Huawei has offered its end-to-end solutions in the construction of China Mobile’s Everest dual Gigabit network, where base stations were built in Mount Everest Base Camp at the attitude of 5,300 meters, the Transition Camp at 5,800 meters, and the Forward Camp at 6,500 meters.
Huawei’s 5G AAU and SPN technologies are applied at these base stations, where network maintenance and optimization are done by a dozen of network specialists who station 24/7 in regions at altitudes of 5,300 meters and above to ensure smooth network operations.
Meanwhile, the 5G fast and huge-capacity connectivity is achieved by Huawei’s Massive MIMO technology supporting lightning speed and large bandwidth. The company has said that the Huawei’s Massive MIMO is highly reliable with excellent coverage.
With its highly flexible three-dimensional narrow beams, the technology works particularly well vertically in Mount Everest. At the attitude of 5,300 meters, the 5G download speed exceeded 1.66 Gbps, where the upload speed tops 215 Mbps.
