Dell Technologies and Orange Telco Demonstrate 5G Capability

Thursday, March 19th, 2020

Dell Technologies successfully completed live field trials of its first 5G-ready Latitude notebook on the Orange 5G network in Paris.

Orange 5G tests of Dell’s first 5G-ready Latitude 9510 notebook reached speeds nearly 20 times faster than 4G.

Orange 5G tests of Dell’s first 5G-ready Latitude 9510 notebook reached speeds nearly 20 times faster than 4G.

The demo builds on Dell’s agreement with Orange, one of the largest operators of mobile and internet services worldwide, to help people experience the impact and power of 5G.

“5G opens a broad new frontier for businesses and consumers with the Always-Connected PC. This announcement is a clear example of how 5G can impact our daily lives. Downloading a large presentation or training video could take seconds instead of minutes. Enhanced broadband communications and lower latency enables new usage models and users to complete tasks much faster than 4G-enabled networks, which creates and drives new business models and new applications, like augmented and virtual reality, cloud-assisted gaming, real-time language translation and image processing,” said Liam Quinn, Senior Vice President and Senior Fellow for Dell Technologies.

The two companies aim to unlock the true power of enhanced broadband communications in creating new opportunities for bandwidth-intensive applications.

They hope to demonstrate an immersive and interactive experience that unlocks new business opportunities and boosts productivity anytime, anywhere with the Always-Connected PC

Dell’s first 5G-ready Latitude notebook was announced at CES earlier this year, and is the first PC to successfully pass the Orange 5G testing.

These first field trials, conducted on the Orange 5G network in Paris, demonstrate the promise of 5G with sustained download speeds over 900 megabits per second on an enterprise-grade mobile compute platform – surpassing 4G speeds that typically are under 60 megabits per second.

By deploying Dell’s 5G PC on the Orange 5G network, the two companies are demonstrating that they can create immersive and interactive environments that unlock new business opportunities, while delivering what employees demand with connectivity to help boost productivity and collaboration.

What does 2020 hold in store?

2019 was a year of rapid innovation – and disruption – for both the IT industry and the broader business community.

With the widespread adoption of hybrid multicloud as the de-facto architecture for enterprise customers, organisations everywhere are under tremendous pressure to modernise their infrastructure and deliver tangible business value around data-intensive applications and workloads.

Multiclouds & Virtualisation

Multiclouds & Virtualisation

As a result, organisations are shifting from on-premises to leverage public cloud services, building private clouds, and moving from disk to flash in data centers – sometimes concurrently.

These transformations open the door to enormous potential, but also introduce the unintended consequence of rising IT complexity.

We predict that a demand for simplicity and customisability will be the number-one factor driving IT purchasing decisions in 2020.

Data-driven transformations

Vendors will need to provide customers modern, flexible technologies with the choice of how to use and consumes these technologies to meet evolving business models.

As IT departments look to de-emphasise maintenance and hardware, reduce overhead, and adopt pay-as-you-go models, simplicity and choice will be key.

Achieving this simplicity will serve as the foundation for companies as they navigate the exciting technological trends we’ve identified below.
