5G launch for Claro in Brazil

Claro Brasil has launched its 5G network using a combination of 700MHz, 1800MHz and 2.5GHz spectrum.

By using a dynamic spectrum sharing model, the operator is able to deliver 5G services concurrently via the same spectrum used for its LTE-A network.

This approach was successfully trialled in February this year at Claro’s offices in Sao Paulo, with the operator using equipment from Ericsson and Qualcomm to carry out a 5G New Radio data test.

Claro Brasil did not reveal the extent of its 5G network coverage, but its president Jose Felix noted its intent to provide its customers with “a gradual and transparent migration to 5G.”
