5G use case anyone? Verizon and Korea Telecom (KT) have tested the world’s first live hologram international call service over a 5G-style network, according to the Korea Herald and accounts in several newspapers. The test used end-to-end 5G network interworking, according to the two firms, with each 5G trial networks accessing 28 GHz spectrum.

The live demonstration showed how a company can hold a meeting for its employees using a mid-budget PC.

The demonstration occurred as KT CEO Hwang Chang-gyu and Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam met in Seoul to discuss ways to expand bilateral partnership on services under development including a live hologram video call. The two also discussed standardization of 5G technologies, co-developing connected car technology and the exchange of Internet of Things platforms.
