China Mobile Shanghai and Huawei launch the first 5G digital indoor system in Shanghai’s Hongqiao railway station
China Mobile Shanghai and Huawei have launched a 5G network in Shanghai’s Hongqiao Railway Station, making it the first railway station to have a 5G digital indoor system (DIS). The deployment aims to achieve deep indoor 5G coverage within the whole station by the end of 2019 providing easy access to fast 5G network services for all passengers.
The railway station’s 5G network is seen as a key milestone in Shanghai’s commercial 5G deployment laying a solid foundation for Shanghai as a Dual-Gigaband city, with Gigabit network speeds on both mobile and fixed networks.
Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station is one of Asia’s biggest traffic hubs in terms of passenger throughput, and a showcase for China’s railway system. It handles over 60 million passengers every year, with over 330,000 people passing through each day during peak seasons.
