Sony Corporation and KDDI Corporation succeeded at a technological demonstration of concurrent communication on a single device using multiple network slices in 5G standalone network (hereafter “5G SA”) on October 14, 2022.
This demonstration confirmed that smoother gameplay can be achieved by using network slices that have different properties for video signal and control signal, respectively. This is the world’s first demonstration for using multiple network slices separately for one application.
Since January 2021, Sony and KDDI have been evaluating technologies to create new entertainment services and business use cases based on 5G SA, which include this demonstration.
This demonstration was carried out with the cooperation of Ericsson Japan K.K.
