Samsung Electronics, China Mobile carry out 5G prototype trial in Beijing
In other Asia-Pacific news, Samsung Electronics announced it has successfully conducted a “5G” prototype trial in conjunction with China Mobile Research Institute, the research arm of China Mobile.
During the 5G trial test, which took place in Beijing, technologies like spatial modulation and filter bank multicarrier were said to be validated for the 3.5 GHz band. Using Samsung’s 5G prototype system and devices and beam forming technology, Samsung and China Mobile Research Institute sought to verify millimeter wave technology performance and frequency characteristics, including mobility, peak throughput and multi-user scheduling capacity, as well as mm wave transmission at indoor and penetration loss.
“To accelerate the realization of 5G standardization and commercialization in China, we will continue to strengthen our joint efforts with the Chinese government, as well as operators in the future,” said Dai Jun Zhang, VP and head of Samsung R&D Institute China.
