Orange extends 5G tests to Greater Paris region
July 19, 2018
Paris, Châtillon and Linas-Montlhéry are the next zones confirmed for 5G tests by Orange. The announcement comes following the ARCEP agreement on the allocation of frequencies in the 3400-3800 MHz band for 5G tests.
Starting this autumn, Orange will offer its partners the chance to test innovative products and services in a 5G laboratory at its Orange Gardens site in Châtillon. This laboratory will offer a very low-latency connection with speeds faster than those available via 4G. These tests will focus in particular on 5G services for the general public, such as virtual reality and augmented reality, communications in an immersive environment and 4K/8K video. 5G services for companies will continue to be addressed in co-innovation projects at the dedicated Paris-Saclay platform.
