Mobile Radio
World’s First 5G Distributed Concert
Matthias Pätzold

On 22 June 2018, Ericsson announced that the company provided 5G mobile technology to demonstrate that the most advanced communication technology is able to connect London and Berlin in music and song. The 2,000-year-old Roman Amphitheatre in the Guildhall Complex, London’s oldest entertainment venue, has embraced 5G technology to team up with the historic Brandenburg Gate Museum in Berlin for two simultaneous performances connecting the two venues.

In one performance, conductor Peter Wiegold led two ensembles, one in each venue, simultaneously. The 5G technology has been used to stream in real time the Berlin performers playing a composition by Ali Hossaini called Epiphany to the amphitheater musicians and its invited audience in London. With the ultralow latency of 5G, the time lag was virtually negligible.

In another performance, Mischa Dohler, Professor of Wireless Technology and head of the Center of Telecommunications Research at King’s College London, United Kingdom, played the piano in Berlin while his daughter, Noa, simultaneously sang the Kiss song “I Was Made for Lovin’ You,” in London [3].

As part of the partnership, Ericsson’s involvement included providing 5G equipment during the 22 June performances. The City of London Corporation and Kings College London were partners.

In addition, King’s College London and Ericsson also presented 5G capabilities in the City Center, an exhibitions and events center dedicated to the built environment within the city of London. The venue housed an immersive 5G installation, where users were able to navigate around London using a fully accurate three-dimensional (3-D) interactive digital model of the city.
