World's first' 5G call completed by Vodafone and Huawei

* Vodafone and Huawei completed the world's first 5G call using the non-standalone 3GPP 5G new radio standard and sub6 GHz spectrum.

* Investing in and building a 5G network will generate $533 billion in US gross domestic product and $1.2 trillion in long-run consumer benefits, according to the American Consumer Institute Center for Citizen Research.

On Wednesday, Vodafone and Huawei announced that they had completed the world's first 5G call, using the non-standalone 3GPP 5G new radio standard and sub-6 GHz spectrum.

The call took place in Spain, ahead of Mobile World Congress, and used a test network and test device to perform the dual connectivity 4G to 5G live data call. The connection started on 4G, according to a Vodafone press release, and then established the data connection on 5G. The engineers involved also successfully tested a live HD video call using the same method, the release noted.

Investing in and building a 5G network will generate $533 billion in US gross domestic product (GDP) and $1.2 trillion in long-run consumer benefits from these broadband wireless services, according to a recent report from the American Consumer Institute Center for Citizen Research. However, this payout will only be possible if service providers make massive upgrades to current mobile service infrastructure, which require state and local governments to take steps to streamline regulations and encourage deployment, the report noted.
