VimpelCom – a.k.a. Beeline – and Huawei held a demonstration showcasing 5G technology at the Moscow Museum that included a hologram phone call via mixed reality glasses (MR).

During the demonstration, the companies used frequencies between 26.6-27.2 GHz (which is within the 3GPP standardized band n258) that had been temporarily allocated to Beeline.

The holographic call demo was conducted via a commercially available Huawei 5G base station consisting of an active antenna array (HAAU 5213) and a new generation of BBU5900 digital processing module with a 5G board. The radio interface uses TDD mode in the 100 MHz frequency band and MIMO 64×64 technology. The terminal was a 5G CPE device based on the Huawei Balong5G01 chipset.

Beeline and Huawei also demonstrated a practical 5G VR use case using an online broadcast from a 360-degree camera housed in a VR helmet.

Beeline and Huawei signed an agreement in May to pursue joint development of 5G in Russia. Last month, Beeline and Ericsson signed a two-year strategic partnership agreement to develop 5G and IoT technologies.
