Today Vodafone Ireland has exceeded the imposed deadline for launching a commercial 5G network by offering services in various parts of five cities. The network operator has previously announced plans to activate 5G services in the fourth quarter, but today's premiere puts it more than a month ahead of schedule. This time is more competitive, especially in markets where network operators are trying to be the first in the 5G network. Other Irish network operators Eir and Three plan to launch the appropriate 5G networks before the end of the year. The 5G Vodafone Ireland service is available in parts of Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway and Waterford. The company claims to provide support for additional urban areas later this year, and will be more widespread in the next two years. The implementation also means the first use of the recently acquired Vodafone Ireland spectrum for 5G, according to companies. Ericsson, which is the main provider of network equipment for the Vodafone Ireland network, said the operator is using Baseband 6630 and AIR 6488 to activate 5G. John Griffin, Managing Director of Ericsson Ireland, said the salesman supported the introduction of each generation of mobile technology in Ireland. "Ericsson has been investing in Ireland for 60 years," he said in a prepared statement. To date, Ericsson has supplied hardware and software to "almost two-thirds of all commercially launched 5G networks on four continents," he added. At the inaugural event at the Assert Center at University College Cork, Vodafone Ireland demonstrated 5G speeds in excess of 700 MB / s and launched a new IoT center for innovation in healthcare in collaboration with the university. The Center claims to be the first training center in the field of telemedicine and medical robotics 5G in the world. Vodafone Ireland has also announced that two smartphones with 5G support are in preparation: Mate 20X 5G Huawei and Samsung S10 5G. "5G will revolutionize the way we use and adopt technology, and will have a huge impact on businesses and society in Ireland," said Vodafone Ireland CEO Anne O’Leary in a statement. "It will provide high speed, very low latency and highly secure connections to a huge number of devices; and is a technology that will unlock a wide range of new applications. " Elsewhere in Europe, Vodafone has also launched a 5G service in some 20 cities in Germany and seven cities in the UK.
