Samsung made a new record of setting 1.75Gbps download speeds in a 10KM 5G mmWave field trial


Today, Samsung Electronics is proud to announce a new record set in Australia. From its newsroom, the company achieved a 10km (6.2 miles) long-range transmission over 5G mmWave in a recent field trial conducted with NBN Co. It's the farthest 28GHz 5G mmWave Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) connection recorded by Samsung. 

In addition to the new long-range transmission, Samsung also achieved record-setting average downlink speeds of 1.75Gbps and uplink speeds of 61.5Mbps. The trial by the company and nbn utilized eight component carriers (8CC), which is an aggregation of 800MHz of mmWave spectrum. At its peak, the company also reached a top downlink speed of 2.7Gbps over a 10km distance from the radio.

For the trial, Samsung used its 28GHz Compact Macro and third-party 5G mmWave customer premise equipment (CPE). Samsung’s Compact Macro is the industry’s first integrated radio for mmWave spectrum, bringing together a baseband, radio and antenna into a single form factor. This compact and lightweight solution can support all frequencies within the mmWave spectrum, simplifying deployment, and is currently deployed in commercial 5G networks across the globe, including Japan, Korea and the U.S.
