Samsung to offer 5G service by 2020

Recommended Posts

"Samsung Electronics said it has successfully tested the platform using the 28 Gigahertz (GHz)"

 

And people complained about Clear's 2.5 GHz propagation issues?

There is no 5G standard yet, what are they testing?

"Samsung Electronics said it has successfully tested the platform using the 28 Gigahertz (GHz) waveband to transmit data at a speed of 1 Gbps, which earlier had been considered as a conundrum by global industry players."

 

Great news everyone! They finally met the 4G specifications for speed which are "Have peak data rates of up to approximately 100 Mbit/s for high mobility such as mobile access and up to approximately 1 Gbit/s for low mobility such as nomadic/local wireless access."

It is based on 64 way MIMO. You could not fit 64 element MIMO in a 600MHz device, so 28GHz is probably the frequency where you could.

Lmao 28ghz. If they rolled that out, it'd have coverage similar to my WiFi router.

they said they are at 1 km right now. I'm sure that is unobstructed open space though.<br /><br />Sent from my SPH-L900 using Tapatalk 2<br /><br /><br />

Not if that's 28GHZ on a point to point connection :P

Oh but it doesn't matter what it is... Samsung has to be the first one to market 5G! They're the first!!!

Like the laundry list of their useless features on SGS4 that you'll turn off within a week. :rofl:

well maybe like wimax devices it will be multi-functional......part cell phone, part space heater.

More completely useless G rhetoric in phones. This should be an exciting announcement but when I read the substance it bores me to sleep. When DoCoMo and Ericsson come up with something that can get to over 10 Gbps over wide distances similar to LTE, then I'll be all for upgrading a G.

The fun part is getting there.

I saw that, it's "64 antenna elements". So... 32x32? 63x1? I have no idea how this works.

I just realized - what about this is "5G" anyways? Just jamming more antennas together with bigger spectrum isn't really an advancement, it's just more of what we already have. It's like putting a cake on top of a cake and then saying "BEHOLD! I have invented... THE DOUBLE CAKE!"

5G is a fundamental change in the network. fiber fed high frequency point to point & point to multipoint backhaul links & satellite fed sites or clusters. With 5G a carrier/operator will be able to bring reliable highspeed broadband data to ANYWHERE they choose.

 

However with my thoughts on what "5G" should be i see no reason to remove Lte from that labeling as this yields for longer terms of evolution. So "5G Lte"

If it reaches that speed sprint can have home internet deals!

Don't we have better than satellite feed junk now with fiber and microwave. Nv pings and backhaul speeds are awesome.

 

The air link will always be the weak link, well unless you run your whole network on t1 lines...

I think satellite hate comes from "dish" Satellites that are consumer size. Large scale satellites are capable of moving massive amounts of data. This is not an in city solution, however there are still towns in this country that do not have any mobile service and a slow ping with fast speeds is not so bad for those folks.

 

Airlink doesn't have to be a weak link. combinations of low and high band spectrum have proved to be step in the right direction.

      S9 S9+ reported into the FCC

      A new Samsung tablet certified for Sprint (and others) went through the FCC a few days ago..
       
      Category 6 UE
      LTE Bands 2-4-5-12-25-26-41
      Carrier Aggregation capable for Downlink operations. 2xCA B41

      Looks to be one of the bigger flagship tablets (~10" ?) and will be the 11th 2xB41 CA capable device to come to Sprint.

      Try to make this as short and simple as possible. I have three devices; 2 of which are on the same plan and the third on a separate plan.
       
      The third device is my tab 4 which is picking up SprintB41 site 310120 just great. I get 3 bars downstairs.
       
      My other two devices; Galaxy Note 4 & Galaxy Note Edge for some reason will not pick up this tower. I have tried PRL updates, Profile updates, restarted the phones and all I can get them to connect to is a ClearwireB41 site.
       
      More background info...all devices have same Sim card as when purchased, tablet stays off 3/4 of the day and my phones are on when I wake up and turn them off at night. No matter where I go inside or out my phones won't connect to the Sprint site.
       
      Anybody have any ideas before I call Sprint trying to figure something out? I'm not sure how long the tablet has been able to connect to this site so I'm not sure what to think of it besides agitated that the tablet of all things is connecting. I posted two photos; one of the tablet connected to the Sprint site; second of the Clear wire site my phones connect to.
       
      Thanks in advance.

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.
       

       
      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

      So I have had the chance to play around with the Tab 4(Wi-fi) only model, and Like how much smoother it is than the Tab 3 series. Now What are some of your favorite features About the device? Hopefully sprint will announce one with Tri-band support. I will Grab one when they come out if they do!
      I believe the Tab 4 on Sprint will have Triband, as the Verizon has 3 band LTE support and At&t version have 4 bands I believe. 
       
      Also if you are looking for a Tab 4 Wifi only version, Check Target out, it has a Cartwheel coupon for 10% off a Tab 4, plus 20% off a Tab 3. And I want to say a coupon off Other Samsung Accessories!
