Samsung Electronics has been able to dramatically increase the data transfer speed in the new version of the 5G wireless mobile network.
To achieve this result, the project team used E-UTRAN dual radio channel technology and carrier aggregation to combine multiple spectrum channels..
During testing, the company combined 40 MHz 4G and 800 MHz 5G frequencies into millimeter waves. This made it possible to transfer data to a Samsung Galaxy S20 + smartphone with a common 4G / 5G core at a speed of 5.23 Gbps..
Fastest 5G mmWave Speeds of 8.5Gbps Achieved Across Multiple Devices
After a successful demonstration, Ji-Yoon Sol, vice president of the company, said the improved technology will help mobile operators to significantly improve the quality of services from their existing equipment..
As 5G technology advances rapidly, South Korea already plans to begin testing 6G systems in 2026.
