Together with Nokia, SK Telecom has demonstrated 20.5Gbps transmission speed over the air, for the first time in the world, in February 2016, and also successfully developed and demonstrated an SDN-enabled distributed core network to stably support 5G transmission speeds in January 2016.

 

Moreover, SK Telecom, together with Ericsson, has also won the category of “Most Notable Partnership between an Operator and Solutions Provider” for their aggressive efforts to develop 5G technologies including network slicing to build a 5G end-to-end pilot. With the 5G system, the two companies expect to achieve successful adoption of new 5G-based services that can bring greater benefits to consumers, businesses and the industry.

 

Meanwhile, during the 5G Asia event, Park Jin-hyo, Senior Vice President and Head of Network Technology R&D Center of SK Telecom, delivered a keynote speech entitled “SK Telecom’s Journey Towards 5G Trials and Beyond” where he shared the company’s vision, achievements and future plans for 5G.
