Samsung set a record speed of 7.5 Gb / s in 5G networks

    Good afternoon, Habr!

    Samsung Electronics has achieved two important milestones in the development of fifth-generation (5G) network telecommunication technologies, achieving a record data transfer rate of 7.5 Gb / s (940 MB / s) in stationary tests, as well as a stable connection of 1.2 Gbit / s (150 MB / s) in a car moving at a speed of more than 100 km / h.

    Samsung conducted the industry's first successful 5G mobile test in the open. All previous 5G tests were conducted in enclosed spaces and laboratories. Samsung’s 5G mobile test of technology took the test to a new level, as it was carried out on a professional racing track 4.35 km long using a specially equipped car.

    Both stationary and mobile tests of the 5G network were carried out at a frequency of 28 GHz. Up to this point, the 28 GHz band has not been claimed, despite its obvious speed advantages, but all because it is usually used to transmit information over short distances. However, Samsung was able to overcome this limitation thanks to Hybrid Adaptive Array Technology, which uses millimeter frequency bands to increase the effective signal range. Although the 5G standard has not yet been ratified, it is expected that the data transfer speed in fifth-generation networks will be tens of times faster than in 4G LTE networks.

    The latest record was 7 times higher than the previous test results, which took place in May 2013. Then Samsung was the first company that managed to achieve a data transfer rate of 1 Gbit / s in a 5G network at a frequency of 28 GHz.

    Despite its own technological breakthroughs and achievements, Samsung continues to attract other market participants to participate in discussions, including through standardization organizations, in order to develop a common vision and direction for the development of the 5G standard. More recently, Samsung has offered other market participants a set of 5G Rainbow features that bring out the seven major technical pillars of 5G technology. This list includes: maximum data transfer rate, spectral efficiency, speed of movement, data transfer rate within the cell, the number of simultaneous connections, communication delays and cost. To eliminate all technical obstacles, Samsung is already developing a wide range of key technologies, such as high-frequency data transmission technology,
