South Korean electronics giant Samsung Electronics has successfully conducted a 5G prototype trial in Beijing in conjunction with China Mobile Research Institute (CMRI), the company said.
During the test the key technologies like spatial modulation and FBMC (Filter Bank Multicarrier) are validated for the low-frequency (3.5GHz), the performance of throughput, outband emission are tested.
5G is the upcoming fifth-generation super fast wireless networking infrastructure which will provide better internet speed and coverage than the current 4G.
With Samsung’s ultra-high frequency 5G prototype system and devices powered by advanced beam forming technology, Samsung and CMRI sought to verify mmWave technology’s performance and frequency characteristics jointly.
They include mobility, peak throughput, and multi-user scheduling capacity, as well as mmWave transmission at indoor, penetration loss, etc.
China is one of the world’s biggest telecom market and the partnership will help the electronic giant to speed up its penetration in the country where state-owned telecom operator have about 840 million subscribers.
“Over many years of research and development, Samsung has accumulated a wealth of technology and experience related to 5G technology and product development,” said Dai Jun Zhang, vice president and head of Samsung R&D Institute China – Beijing.
“To accelerate the realization of 5G standardization and commercialization in China, we will continue to strengthen our joint efforts with the Chinese government, as well as operators in the future.”
