Ericsson establishes 7Gbps connection to moving vehicle using 5G prototype | ZDNet

The trial was undertaken at Ericsson’s Stockholm, Sweden, headquarters on June 10, utilising 5G radio access prototype equipment using a 5G radio interface named New Radio (NR) alongside massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO). Massive MIMO combines a high number of antenna elements with beamforming for higher throughput, increased coverage, improved capacity, and more efficient usage of the mobile network
