The best example of how much the 5G network can be improved is the latest achievement of the company Samsung and Qualcomm. The Americans and Koreans have jointly developed new devices for wireless data transmission over the 5G network. Effect? A new one has been established global record, which is now as much as 8.08 Gb / s.
Engineers boast that it’s almost 4 times more bandwidth compared to the one offered in 2019, i.e. before the outbreak of the pandemic, when the 5G network was just getting started and the interest in it was not as great as it is now. It is also worth emphasizing here that we managed to increase the transfer speed almost twice with the one available at the beginning of 2021.
The merit of this wonderful result is Snapdragon X65 5G Modem-RF System. This is a technology provided by Qualcomm. The tests were carried out in the Plano laboratory in Texas thanks to fully virtualized RAN and Core, mmWave 5G Compact Macro and Massive MIMO. Both corporations said technology was used in the experiments New Radio Dual Connectivity (NR-DC). It was used to combine the mmWave spectra (800 MHz wide band was used) and the 5G medium band (100 MHz wide).
Polish operator Plus he said that he is already within the range of his super-fast 5G network 19 million inhabitants of the country. Plus is also testing 5G type SA (standalone) commercially, i.e. a network independent of the LTE infrastructure. Such changes should give us a feeling of using the new standard, including low latency and transfer stability. In our country, Orange, Play and T-Mobile use the 2100 MHz band, while Plus the 2600 MHz band.
