Samsung sets new speed records for 5G mobile technology

Samsung Electronics has announced two milestones in the development of 5G mobile technology.

It’s achieved 7.5Gbps (940MB per second) in a stationary environment and 1.2Gbps (150MB/second) from a vehicle travelling at over 60mph. Both are thought to be mobile industry firsts.

In addition, Samsung points out that both tests were conducted over a 28GHz 5G network using its own Hybrid Adaptive Array Technology, which enables these higher frequencies to be used over greater distances.

In May 2013, Samsung became the first company to achieve 1Gbps over a 28GHz 5G network.

Chang Yeong Kim, Head of the DMC R&D Centre at Samsung Electronics, said “We will continue to build upon these milestones and develop advanced technologies that contribute to the 5G standard. In addition to leveraging our own global R&D capabilities, we will also continue to cooperate with other industry leaders and research centres across the world. Whether you are talking about mobile devices, the cloud, or the Internet of Things, the demand for 5G telecommunications standard and its supporting technologies will continue to grow.”

A formal 5G standard has yet to be agreed by networks and manufacturers.
