China Guangzhou airport launches 5G network

The Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in south China’s Guangdong Province has launched a 5G base station, making it the first 5G-covered airport in the country.

The speed of the network can reach 1.14 gigabytes per second, around 50 times faster than the current 4G network, according to a test, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

The base station was built by China Unicom’s Guangzhou branch. It uses Huawei’s 5G Lampsite, an in-depth radio coverage solution that supports indoor deployment in large to medium-sized sites.

Guangzhou Baiyun is a major airport in south China with air routes to more than 90 international and regional destinations. In 2017, it handled more than 65.8 million passenger trips.
