5G Break Through Claimed by Samsung

Many of us are still stuck in 3G and many major countries like UK and China are still to roll out 4G mobile networks… Samsung claims its new 5G technology can speeds that are more than 100 Times of what we get now. In short Samsung offers Gigabit(1 Gbps) speeds on your mobile device. This breakthrough will allow us a wide range of online options like streaming 3D movies on your mobile device.

The New 5G technology

5G or 5th generation Internet will not be available to public untill 2020 according to techcrunch. While many mobile devices dont have support for the “Outdated” 4G Networks… 5G is out of question. Even if some phones come out supporting the latest 5G networks then you can be rest assured that you will have to dig deep in your pockets to get them + you will also have to pay a premium on a monthly basis. So unless you live in Dubai and have a oil field to spare.. then you better not thing of it 😀 .

“Samsung Secures Millimeter-Wave Transceiver Technologies for 5G Cellular Networks

The implementation of a high-speed 5G cellular network requires a broad band of frequencies, much like an increased water flow requires a wider pipe. While it was a recognized option, it has been long believed that the millimeter-wave bands had limitations in transmitting data over long distances due to its unfavorable propagation characteristics.However, Samsung’s new adaptive array transceiver technology has proved itself as a successful solution. 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 adaptive array transceiver technology, using 64 antenna elements, can be a viable solution for overcoming the radio propagation loss at millimeter-wave bands, much higher than the conventional frequency bands ranging from several hundred MHz to several GHz. 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.” – Source samsung Blog
