KDDI, Samsung: 28GHz surveillance video call on train platform using 5G base station

Samsung Electronics and KDDI have completed a test using 28 GHz to transmit 4K ultrahigh-definition (UHD) surveillance video on a train platform in Tokyo, Japan.  The demonstration was conducted between Nov. 21 and Dec. 21 2018 at the Haneda Airport International Terminal in Ota, Tokyo. Along with Waseda University, Keihin Corporation and Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International (ATR), Samsung said it was able to demonstrate effective communications through 4K UHD video using a 5G base station.   Samsung’s 5G solutions were used to conduct the demonstration. KDDI was responsible for assessing and designing the 5G test environment at the train station, which was provided by Keikyu Corporation, while Waseda University provided the monitoring system, VR goggles and video evaluation.

Last year, KDDI and Samsung showed how they were able to download an 8K video via the CPE installed onboard a moving train.  This latest accomplishment demonstrates how 5G can be used to increase train passenger safety. The companies say that collecting and analyzing 4K UHD videos in real time will remove some of the burdens from the staff in charge of constantly monitoring footage. It also helps them in detecting dangers in advance and improving overall safety.

During the demonstration, the video files collected from both 4K security cameras and security robots patrolling the station were sent via tablets using 5G, according to a press release. The files were then received by the base station to be displayed on the monitor and virtual reality (VR) goggles in the monitoring room. Detecting any suspicious people or objects at the station was made possible through collecting and analyzing the received 4K files shown on the server.

The demo used Samsung’s 5G solution, and KDDI was responsible for assessing and designing the 5G test environment at the train station, which was provided by Keikyu. Waseda University provided the monitoring system, VR goggles and video evaluation.

Separately, another 5G demo involving KDDI and Samsung was conducted at an elementary school, where they compared the differences between 5G tablets and Wi-Fi tablets in their ability to download and play back videos.

A gym at Maehara Elementary School in Tokyo was set up with Samsung’s 5G network at 28 GHz to enable UHD videos. They also worked with the ATR.

The students were given a chance to create their own videos and experience high-speed and large capacity transmission of large video files. At the same time, they verified the capabilities of 5G for this type of use case. KDDI was responsible for assessing and designing the 5G areas used in the trial, and ATR provided the testing infrastructure.

  1. During the Samsung and KDDI demonstration, large UHD videos were transmitted without interruption, despite requiring large amounts of bandwidth.

    “We have been able to successfully demonstrate how 5G can reshape the future of education in Japan and beyond by building a live environment to showcase the concept,” said Yoshiaki Uchida of KDDI. “Together with Samsung, our long-term partner in this space, we are delivering solutions that will enable innovative academic experiences in the classroom and support young people’s immersive learning for years to come.”

  2. Ericsson and Qualcomm complete 5G data call on 2.6 GHz band

    Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, have achieved a non-standalone (NSA) 5G New Radio (NR) data call on 2.6 GHz, adding a new frequency band to those successfully tested for commercial deployment.

    The bi-directional downlink and uplink data call was made at the Ericsson Lab in Kista, Sweden last December 20. It brings a new sub-6 frequency band one step closer to commercial rollout.

    This latest Interoperability Development Testing (IoDT) data call is compliant with the 3GPP Rel-15 “early drop” specification that was frozen in March 2018 but further stabilized in September, and which is the basis for commercial launches expected in the first half of 2019.

    Per Narvinger, Head of Product Area Networks, Ericsson says: “Together with Qualcomm Technologies, Ericsson continues to make strides on commercial 5G readiness by continuously performing interoperability tests on 5G NR networks on different spectrum bands. We’re offering our customers flexible deployment options as they gear up for commercial 5G services.”

    The lab demonstration used Ericsson’s commercially available 5G hardware – including its 5G NR radio AIR 6488 and RAN Compute products – together with Qualcomm Technologies’ mobile smartphone form-factor test device powered by the Snapdragon X50 5G modem and antenna modules with integrated RF transceiver, RF front-end and antenna elements.

    Durga Malladi, Senior Vice President and General Manager, 4G/5G at Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., says: “Qualcomm Technologies is excited to continue working with Ericsson on 5G technology adoption and drive worldwide 5G launches this year. We are committed to helping ensure consumers get 5G devices and experiences in their hands starting in the first half of 2019.”
