The TechXLR8 Asia 2018 is organized by Infoma Telecom & Media, a global research institute for ICT (Information Communication Technology), which has 150 offices in 43 countries.
KT's award in the Best Plan for Integrating LTE Advanced Pro and 5G sector has been recognized as a result of enhancing LTE-A Pro network and stable evolution to 5G.
KT ensured maximum speed by optimizing LTE-A Pro network while providing 5G trial service reliably in Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. It also provided a new concept service that combines 5G and LTE, along with the success in the LTE-5G network linkage.
In particular, KT introduced various realistic services to the public that support characteristics of ultra-fast and ultra-low delay, which are major differentiators of 5G technology at this year's winter Olympics.
Meanwhile, KT was the only South Korean telecommunication company to win 5G-related prize at the Asia Mobile Award held in Shanghai, MWC in June.
