Higher uplink capacities are frequently needed by industry applications in sectors including manufacturing, transportation, healthcare, entertainment, and news production than by ordinary consumer mobile users.

However, in a bid to deliver better service to customers, the world’s largest chipmaker, Qualcomm in partnership with Swedish telecom gear maker Singtel and Ericsson has announced the achievement of a maximum upload speed of 1.6Gbps on a 5G millimetre wave.

Singtel can efficiently change the uplink and downlink throughput using a balanced pattern structure configuration and offer a greater uplink ratio for 5G mmWave, boosting the uplink peak cell performance.

Tay Yeow Lian, Singtel’s Managing Director, said the accomplishment is crucial and timely as businesses needicknee-dicker speeds to handle the transfer of enormous volumes of data.

“This achievement is significant and timely in supporting enterprises who are increasingly needing faster upload speeds to support the transfer of large volumes of data or process complex applications such as heavy video streaming applications for high-precision quality control and manufacturing operations.”

Singtel is the top communications technology company in Asia, offering businesses and consumers a range of services including entertainment, 5G and technology services, and next-generation communication.

“Together with our tailored 5G network with mobile edge core solution ensures high-speed uninterrupted connectivity and massive bandwidth, enterprises can increase their operational efficiency and deliver better services to their customers, Tay Yeow Lian.”

This is a big gain for organizations because use cases that require 5G high upload rates may be provided in a flexible, reliable, and secure fashion. Businesses will be better able to assess the performance of their devices and networks thanks to the increased 5G upload speed and Singtel Paragon, the first all-in-one 5G and multi-access edge compute business orchestration platform in the industry. This will also increase the capacity for real-time performance monitoring and feedback.

However, on the other hand, ST Liew, Qualcomm’s Asia-Pacific Vice President said to meet their diverse needs, businesses and consumers are becoming more aware of the growing demand for faster uplink speeds.

“Qualcomm Technologies recognises the growing demand of enterprises and consumers for higher uplink speeds to address their various needs, he said “We have closely collaborated with industry partners, Singtel and Ericsson, to optimize our solutions for uplink-oriented communications, which has shown positive results upon the conducted evaluation. We will continue to innovate and work with partners to further realise the use of 5G mmWave especially given the evolving needs of enterprises and consumers today.”

“We are delighted to collaborate with our partners Singtel and Qualcomm towards pushing the boundaries on what mmWave technology can deliver for enterprises when it comes to uplink speeds on a live deployment, said, Martin Wiktorin, Head of Ericsson Singapore, Brunei and Philippines. A 5G network that supports high capacity, secure and reliable uplink requirements, can facilitate the digitalization of enterprises and help them realize Industry 4.0 manufacturing applications. This will enable them to enhance their productivity and competitiveness.”
