Orange launches 5G experimentation platforms in 26GHz band

October 08, 2019 / Capacity Media

Orange has said it will start testing in Châtillon and Rennes following ARCEP's approval to assign experimentation frequencies in the 26GHz band. The company says that it will use this call for projects as an opportunity to assess the performances of these new frequency bands as well as the technical and environmental conditions in which these bands can be used. In addition, it is also an opportunity to evaluate the benefits of this technology for innovative applications in very busy areas (railway stations, airports, stadiums, concerts, etc.) and to draw lessons for future developments of 5G. “The 26GHz spectrum band will allow us to explore new services based on 5G,” said Mari-Noëlle Jégo-Laveissière (pictured), deputy CEO and chief technology and innovation officer of Orange. “We are aiming to set-up experimental platforms that will stimulate collaboration on these new use-cases across all economic sectors.”
