Samsung announced that it has broken another industry speed record for 5G networks. The Korean giant partnered with Verizon and Qualcomm to set a record in Plano, Texas, where data download speeds of 711 Mbps were achieved.
The transmission speed is high enough to allow for recording and uploading high-definition video to the cloud or social networks in real time.
The demonstration was conducted using Samsung 5G and 4G base stations and a Snapdragon X65 5G modem. In particular, high data transfer rates were achieved through carrier aggregation technology by combining two or more frequency bands in the Samsung 5G Compact Macro solution. The same 5G mmWave Compact Macro station was used by Samsung to boost data speeds on Seoul's metro network during a demonstration last month.
