Verizon, Samsung and Qualcomm continue driving innovation on 5G Ultra Wideband technology, reaching 711 Mbps upload speeds using mmWave spectrum
Verizon, Samsung Electronics and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., continue to push the limits of 5G technology, using innovation to continuously drive greater performance from this transformational technology. Recently, the companies reached upload speeds of 711 Mbps in a lab trial using aggregated bands of mmWave spectrum.
Our mmWave build has been a key differentiator. Even as we push towards massive and rapid 5G service expansion using our newly acquired midband spectrum, we are doubling our commitment to mmWave usage,” stated Adam Koeppe Senior Vice President of Technology Planning at Verizon. “You will see us continue to expand our mmWave footprint to deliver game-changing experiences for the densest parts of our network and for unique enterprise solutions. We had over 17K mmWave cell sites at the end of last year and are on track to add 14K more in 2021, with over 30K sites on air by the end of this year, and we’ll keep building after that,” said Koeppe.
Previous multi-gigabit speeds have been recorded on downloads before, but this is the fastest speed the companies have been able to reach while uploading data to the network. Speeds approaching those seen in this recent trial (for comparison, 700+ Mbps is the equivalent of a one GB movie uploaded in about 10 seconds) will pave the way for uploading videos, pictures and data to the cloud, social media accounts, or sharing directly with others in densely populated venues like downtown streets, concerts and football stadiums. These speeds, whether you use a traditional mobile connection or fixed wireless access will allow students and employees working remotely to upload large files and complete simultaneous editing in the cloud. They also make it possible for colleagues to collaborate and share information with one another.
These uplink speeds will open new avenues for private networks to be used by enterprises. Higher uplink speeds could enable manufacturers to use artificial intelligence to detect tiny product defects in products only by ultra-HD video feeds. These speeds will also boost other upload-intensive solutions like multi-location, massive security camera capabilities, and augmented reality-centered customers experiences.
About the trial
The demonstration surpassed current peak upload speeds by combining 400MHz of Verizon’s 5G mmWave frequency and 20MHz of 4G frequency using the latest 5G technologies, including mmWave carrier aggregation and Single-User MIMO (SU-MIMO). Network technology used in the demo included Samsung’s 28GHz 5G Compact Macro and virtualized RAN (vRAN) and Core (vCore) along with a smartphone form-factor test device powered by the Qualcomm flagship Snapdragon(r) X65 5G Modem-RF System.
Snapdragon X65 is Qualcomm Technologies’ 4th generation 5G mmWave Modem-RF System for phones, mobile broadband, compute, XR, industrial IoT, 5G private networks and fixed wireless access. Commercial mobile devices based on these Modem-RF solutions are expected to launch by late 2021.
Samsung’s Compact Macro provides 5G mmWave through the integration of a baseband radio, antenna and radio in one form factor. For fast build-up of 5G networks, this lightweight and compact solution can be installed on both the sides of buildings and on utility poles. The Compact Macro achieved first Common Criteria (CC) certification against Network Device collaborative Protection Profile (NDcPP), an internationally recognized IT security standard.
In collaboration with Qualcomm, we are excited reach those ultra-fast uplink speeds against Network Device collaborative Protection Profile (NDcPP), an internationally recognized IT security standard. “Samsung is looking forward to harnessing 5G’s full potential through new breakthroughs that will bring true transformative benefits to people all over the globe and across the enterprise landscape
” “Samsung hopes to harness the full potential of 5G via new breakthroughs that will enable differentiated 5G experiences and deliver more immersive mobile services for all users,” said Junehee Lee, Executive Vice President and Head of R&D, Networks Business at Samsung Electronics.
