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.
