Samsung Electronics has developed core technology
that will allow it to deliver high-speed 5G wireless data
connections to consumers by 2020, the company
announced today. The system allows data
transmission up to several hundred times faster than
current 4G networks. 5G mobile communications technology is the next
generation of 4G LTE networks tech and can offer
data transmission speeds of up to several tens of
Gbps per base station. Once 5G networks are
commercialized, they will allow users to transmit
massive data files, including UHD movies and remote medical services, “practically without limitation,”
Samsung claims. 4G connections have gradually become available to
consumers around the world since 2008, but many
countries, including China, are still working toward
launching their LTE networks. Samsung says,
however, that its new adaptive array transceiver
technology overcomes the limitations that millimeter- wave bands had when transmitting data over long
distances. It transmits data in the millimeter-wave
band at a frequency of 28 GHz at a speed of up to
1.056 Gbps to a distance of up to 2 kilometers. “The millimeter-wave band is the most effective
solution to recent surges in wireless Internet usage.
Samsung’s recent success in developing the adaptive
array transceiver technology has brought us one step
closer to the commercialization of 5G mobile
communications in the millimeter-wave bands,” said Samsung executive vice president and head of digital
medial and communication R&D ChangYeong Kim. Samsung isn’t the only company to announce that it
has developed 5G core tech. In February, NTT
DoCoMo confirmed that it had successfully
conducted a 10Gbps wireless test.
