Leading mobile operator Advanced Info Service (AIS) has partnered with Chinese digital technology company ZTE Corporation to demonstrate the 5G network operating in the 2.6 gigahertz spectrum, which can deliver 1 millisecond latency, which it says is a boon for different sectors. including cloud gaming and smart industry.
This 5G test for ultra-reliable low-latency communications (URLLC) in the 2.6 GHz band was the first in Thailand. The move follows the collaboration between AIS and ZTE to establish the AZ Centre, which will serve as Thailand’s first 5G innovation hub.
“As we develop our services to deliver maximum quality, we are driven by cutting-edge innovations to take 5G technology to higher levels, which is part of our commitment to support the future sustainable growth of the digital economy,” said Wasit Wattanasap, Head of Nationwide Operations and Support at AIS.
The company has worked with global partners like ZTE to upgrade the country’s 5G network to a world-class digital infrastructure, he said. Mr. Wasit said that the 5G intelligent autonomous network adapts to a range of enterprise solutions in real time.
“We successfully conducted trials of URLLC for the first time in Thailand in the 2.6 GHz waveband of the AIS 5G network,” he said. “This delivers 1ms-level latency, suitable for high-speed data transfer with the greater stability needed for critical applications.”
Suitable applications that need low latency include mobile cloud gaming and industrial use cases such as machine control systems, autonomous vehicles and remote operations, Mr Wasit said.
Han Zhiming, Chief Executive of ZTE Thailand, said the company is confident that Thailand has strong capabilities with a rapid range of innovations, especially by using the 5G network to lay the foundation for research and development.
“This will create new use cases in the future, supporting demand from retail customers while creating more opportunities for the industrial sector,” said Mr. Han.
