The Airspan-led 5G for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) consortium, AutoAir, announced final deployment of a hyper-dense small cell network of 89 base stations operating in the in the 2.3 and 3.4–3.8 GHz mid-band spectrum, including a 22-sector high-speed mobility 57–71 GHz mm wave highway system, delivering 5 Gbit/s every 300 m (984 ft). Its live public demonstrations showed the system delivering greater than 1 Gbit/s capacity to a McLaren sports car while traveling at 160 mph (257 km/h) on the Millbrook high-speed bowl with handovers occurring every 2 seconds. Real-time telemetry was provided by McLaren’s Atlas system.
A second demonstration showed real-time video streaming between multiple vehicles (each with four 4K cameras). The video was streamed between a range of different passenger cars, coaches, and emergency vehicles that included police cars, fire trucks, and ambulances.
