Samsung claims to have successfully developed the core technology for 5G mobile networks achieving data transfer speeds up to several hundred times faster than current 4G networks.
4G LTE is now a mainstream technology, but coverage is still rather limited. Mobile technology companies are though already working on the next big thing: 5G mobile networks promising data transfer speeds that are several hundred times faster than 4G. Samsung Electronics announced that it has successfully developed the world’s first adaptive array transceiver technology operating in the millimeter-wave Ka bands for cellular communications.
The new technology is at the core of 5G mobile communications system and will provide data transmission up to several hundred times faster than current 4G networks. 5G mobile communications technology is the next generation of the existing 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network technology. 5G will be capable of providing a ubiquitous Gbps experience to subscribers anywhere and offers data transmission speeds of up to several tens of Gbps per base station.
Samsung plans to accelerate the research and development of 5G mobile communications technologies, including adaptive array transceiver at the millimeter-wave bands, to commercialize those technologies by 2020.
