Samsung’s New LTE Modem Technology Supports First 6CA with 1.2Gbps download speed

Published

on

Today, Samsung announced the launch of the world’s first LTE modem with support 6CA(carrier aggregation) technology. It will be equipped with the next generation of Exynos series processors.

Samsung said that the Exynos 9 processor, which was released earlier this year, has the LTE Cat.16 baseband chip, the industry’s first chip to support 5CA, enabling peak 1Gbps download speeds. The latest release of the baseband chip can support LTE Cat.16 with 6CA support, peak download rate can reach 1.2Gbps, compared to previously it is increased by 20%.

Samsung said that the new baseband needs only about 10 seconds to download a movie, but also allows users to enjoy the entire process of video calls and mobile live experience.

At the same time, the new generation of baseband supports 4 × 4 MIMO and 256QAM, which can maximize the transmission efficiency of data. But also through eLAA technology (aggregation authorization and unauthorized spectrum), allowing operators to more effectively use the spectrum of resources at hand.

Samsung said the support for LTE Cat.18 level baseband is expected to be put into mass production by the end of this year.

From the current situation, for Galaxy Note 8 is note sure , but with the Galaxy S9 next year should be no problem.

Huawei 5G Base Station,5G CPEs and 5G Mi-Fi were adopted in the commercial network. The 5G network uploads an average of 80 Mbit/s HD video stream, enabling the Dubai residents to live broadcast their New Year greetings in HD mode. Chinese audiences can receive the greetings in real time. As a global pioneer in 5G commercial deployment, the UAE has built a large-scale 5G commercial network in 2019 to provide 5G services for the public. In addition, the continuously cooperation with vertical industries are conducted to build Dubai as a 5G city.

The 5G network features include wide coverage, large bandwidth, and low latency. It can enable collaborative live broadcasting, signal backhaul, and remote command and dispatch across multiple locations. HD video streams can be transmitted to the studio in real time by 5G instead of deploying optical fibers, microwave transmission systems, or satellite broadcast vehicle. The 5G network simplifies the transmission of HD video signals. The mobile phone-sized 5G Mi-Fi that weighs only 180 grams can be used to complete the live broadcast tasks. The 5G live broadcast solution has been used in the media industry for multiple times, making live broadcast more convenient, flexible and cost-effective.

As the media and video industry evolves towards HD, multi-angle, and highly interactive experience, the media industry will have increasing requirements for mobile high-bandwidth transmission networks. The media industry will become an important vertical industry that enjoys 5G. With the large-scale commercial use of 5G commercial networks and related terminals, 5G will gradually enable vertical industries to shift from demonstration projects to large-scale commercialization and promote digital transformation of industries.

ZTE Corporation, a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, today announced that ZTE and MTN Uganda have jointly launched the first 5G SA network in East Africa, demonstrating 5G use cases at an event themed “Experience the Future Together”, taking place in the Nyonyi Garden, Kampala, Uganda.

ZTE and MTN Uganda have showcased a high-speed 5G SA network under the 60 MHz spectrum bandwidth with an actual rate of more than 1.494 Gbps, which can support a variety of applications, such as Gigabit without Fiber Connectivity, Cloud XR, ultra-HD live broadcast, automatic driving and remote surgery.

It is the first 5G SA network in East Africa. Its deployment and operation adopts ZTE’s end-to-end 5G equipment, including Common Core, to achieve the complete separation of the signaling plane and the data plane without relying on the existing LTE core network EPC. Furthermore, the network can further support typical 5G applications, including uRLLC and mMTC, through smooth upgrade.

Underpinned by the SA 5G network, the demonstration also featured the real-time communication of an on-site fixed-wireless access network, bionic robot, Cloud VR and other vertical industries, fully showcasing the 5G network’s capability as the foundation of an intelligent society as well as ZTE and MTN’s commitment to exploring 5G development in Africa.

In addition, ZTE also presented its end-to-end commercialized 5G solutions, including the 5G Common Core, Beyond 100G Transmission, 5G Flexhaul, 5G New Radio and Big Video, as well as its 5G terminal devices, such as Axon 10 Pro 5G smartphones, 5G indoor and outdoor routers.

“ZTE is very keen on sharing new technologies with MTN,” said Bill Yi, Vice President at ZTE. “We have been constantly enhancing our 5G capabilities and have become a core supplier of end-to-end solutions in the global ICT industry.”

As South Africa’s largest telecom operator and the largest multinational telecom company in Africa, MTN Group is currently operating in 21 countries in Africa and the Middle East. To date, the number of MTN users has exceeded 230 million. ZTE has been a partner of MTN since 2009, involving the fields of wireless, core network, transmission, energy infrastructure, terminals, and O&M services. ZTE has collaborated with the 11 branches of MTN in different projects.

ZTE is a provider of advanced telecommunications systems, mobile devices and enterprise technology solutions to consumers, operators, companies and public sector customers. As a part of ZTE’s strategy, the company is committed to providing customers with integrated end-to-end innovations to deliver excellence and value as the telecommunications and information technology sectors converge.

World’s First 4K Broadcast Encoder with 5G Modules a Milestone for Cogent and Huawei

Published

on

Cogent and Huawei jointly concluded phase one tests of the industry’s first 4K broadcast encoders integrated with 5G modules at Huawei’s Shanghai Wireless X Labs (X Labs). The successfully piloted end-to-end (E2E) broadcast service marks an important step toward the commercial adoption of 5G media industry applications.

The encoder is the world’s first industrial pre-commercial product that supports both 5G non-standalone and standalone (NSA/SA) technologies and this is the first time integration tests have been carried out for media applications in conjunction with Huawei’s MH5000 modules. In the future, 5G 4K broadcast backpacks will become more compact and lightweight, featuring only encoders and batteries and with no need for customer-premises equipment (CPE) and mobile phones, while also offering stronger capabilities and improved battery life.

5G 4K broadcast backpacks were first introduced to the media industry in 2019, delivering 4K video broadcasts by tapping into such powerful 5G capabilities as wide coverage, high bandwidth, and low latency. Utilizing these features, 5G networks offer an ideal alternative to optical fiber links, microwave links, and outside broadcasting (OB) van systems required for 4K video transfer to studios in real time, while also enabling reliable real-time multi-camera, cross-region coordination and remote dispatching. As a result, traditional video transmission systems have now been resized to fit small backpacks and video collection and editing tasks can be completed on site, transforming conventional broadcast techniques.

The 4K broadcast encoder has two integrated MH5000 modules developed by Huawei, providing transmission support in dynamic traffic sharing mode for 40 Mbps 4K videos. This product supports both 5G NSA and SA networks in video transfer to cloud-based servers, where videos are then distributed to post processing devices. At the same time, the cloud-based servers support service level agreement (SLA) monitoring, which allows key performance indicators (KPIs) to be dynamically collected for networks and services in order to better determine if the link quality meets video upload requirements.

“5G commercial industry applications are integrated with 5G modules and native SLA monitoring functionality and require tailored optimizations for wide-area wireless service mechanisms,” said Zhao Qiyong, Director of Wireless X Labs. “5G 4K backpacks integrated with 5G modules are a typical example of the efforts being made in this area. 5G networks and associated terminals are already seeing large-scale commercial adoption and Huawei will continue to work with industry partners to enable vertical industries with 5G technology and evolve these showcases to real-world commercial applications.”
