Samsung pushes 8.5Gbps across 800MHz of 5G mmWave spectrum
Samsung announced on Tuesday that it had pushed a total of 8.5Gbps to a pair of mobile phones under lab conditions.
The test used 800MHz of millimetre wave (mmWave) spectrum and carrier aggregations with MU-MIMO (multi-user multiple-input multiple-output) to deliver approximately 4.3Gbps to each of the devices.
Samsung said the test showed mmWave was capable of delivering multi-gigabit speeds that lower spectrum bands were incapable of.
"Mobile operators will be able to deliver new and rich services such as 8K video streaming, AR remote learning and holistic VR teleconferencing as well as new use cases that are yet to be imagined," the company said.
