China Mobile and Huawei have jointly taken 5G connectivity to a new height by bringing the network to the summit of Mount Everest.
They have completed the world's highest 5G base station at the altitude of 6500 meters. Together with the launch of the Gigabit optical fibre network at the same altitude, Huawei has enabled China Mobile to run its dual Gigabit network on Mount Everest.
On the occasion of 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, 5G network on Mount Everest will provide communication services for the 2020 Mount Everest re-measurement.
Huawei has offered its end-to-end solutions in the construction of China Mobile's Everest dual Gigabit network.
For this, the base stations were built on Mount Everest Base Camp at the altitude 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 were applied at these base stations, where network maintenance and optimization were done by a dozen of network specialists who were stationed 24/7 in regions at altitudes of 5,300 meters and above to ensure smooth network operations.
Huawei's Massive MIMO 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 and the upload speed topped 215 Mbps.
Meanwhile, quality and undisrupted networks were guaranteed by Huawei's Intelligent OptiX Network solutions, with data-thirsty transfer of high-res videos and VR live broadcast supported by enterprise gateways with 1Gbps upstream/downstream connections.
The Everest base camp at 5,300 meters has been fully covered at a logged speed of 1.43Gbps, thanks to the Gigabit ONT.
Huawei's 10G PON OLT and 200G ultra-high-speed transmission platform will intelligently manage data throughput, making it possible for families and businesses to enjoy super-fast internet access at such high regions.
With its HoloSens intelligent video surveillance system, Huawei ensured streaming quality with the capabilities of optimization and fault locating with just one click.
The beauty of Mount Everest could be displayed via 5G high-definition video and VR experience, which will provide further insights for mountaineers, scientists and other specialists into nature.
The ground-breaking establishment on Mount Everest once again proved that 5G technology connects Mankind and the Earth harmoniously.
