Samsung has achieved what it says is the fastest 5G speed in a lab demonstration that combined 800MHz of mmWave spectrum with MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output) technology.
It used two test mobile devices, to achieve approximately 4.3Gbps speeds on each, reaching an industry peak speed of 8.5Gbps across both devices. The test used two key technologies in carrier aggregation and MU-MIMO in order to achieve the speed.
According to Samsung, achieving such speeds will enable mobile operators to deliver 8K streaming via 5G, as well as AR remote learning.
“Samsung will continue to be at the forefront in advancing 5G mmWave technology,” said Hyunho Park, SVP, Networks Business at Samsung Electronics. “This successful demonstration proves mmWave’s potential to deliver new kinds of business use cases and open up opportunities for mobile operators. We look forward to building on this significant technical breakthrough to fuel our continuous journey towards an innovative and vibrant mmWave ecosystem.”
