The 5G network has reached Mount Everest, the world’s highest mountain peak. On the highest peak of the Himalayas, Chinese mobile operator China Mobile and Huawei have jointly installed the 5G tower. By installing this mobile tower, climbers will get better network connectivity even in extreme conditions.
The tower installed here will provide internet speeds of up to 1.7Gbps. China Mobile has put the site in the delight of two important achievements of China. It has delivered 60 years of its successful Everest mission in China and 45 years of completion of the height of this summit.
Huawei 5G Tower at Mt. Everest
Huawei Mobile has built this tallest 5G mobile tower in five base stations. It has been set up at Base Camp (5,300 m), Transition Camp (5,800 m), and Forward Camp (6,500 m). Huawei has also developed this site for a unique case study.
According to the company’s claims, the capacity of this base station is 20 times more than the traditional base station. This base station can provide 1.7Gbps downloading and uploading speeds of up to 215Mbps. Apart from Huawei, Nokia, Ericsson, Cisco are also working with telecom service providers around the world for the 5G network.
5G i.e. the fifth generation’s network technology provides 10 times better connectivity to currently available 4G networks. It works on MIMO (Multiple Input and Multiple Output) technologies, due to which continuous connectivity is available even at low latencies.
Huawei has built a base station on Mount Everest because it is not possible to build a conventional base station in an urban environment. Multiple beams of data from this base station can be tracked to the user by sending them from the antenna.
