Samsung announced that the company will conduct what they claim to be Australia’s first 5G virtualised RAN (vRAN) trial on 26GHz.
Optus said it has achieved another Australian 5G record, smashing 5G upload speeds as part of its mmWave testing on its live commercial network, together with technology partner Nokia, as it continues to push the possibilities of its super-fast 5G network.
Qualcomm announced at the Mobile World Congress that a contingent of mobile communications companies announced their collective support for 5G mmWave technology globally – including key players from a growing number of regions including China, Europe, Japan, Korea, North America and South East Asia.
Optus tests dynamic spectrum sharing (DSS) between multiple radio access technologies, and reaches new mmWave download milestone.
Nokia, Qualcomm Technologies, and UScellular announced that they have achieved a world record extended range over mmWave of more than 10km utilising its 5G extended-range millimetre Wave (mmWave) solution on a commercial network. This milestone paves the way to bring extended range 5G service with massive capacity and low latency to Nokia customers.
Telco Singtel Optus says it has switched on its first six 5G mmWave commercial sites in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane even as it reached a million 5G-capable devices on its network.
Successful milestone achieved in the US addresses “the last mile” connectivity challenge and enhances consumer broadband experiences as data demand grows.
Qualcomm has announced real-world test results demonstrating that 5G mmWave connectivity speeds on commercial devices is 16 times faster than 5G operating solely in sub-6 GHz frequencies.
The new 5G mmWave spectrum will "power 5G fixed wireless and super-fast 5G mobile", and with Optus, Telstra, Dense Air Australia and Pentanet winning mmWave spectrum, the future for Australia is super fast.
Optus states it is continuing to build a world-class 5G network which will be made even better with the acquisition of a range of new licences in the 26GHz spectrum band.
Telstra has announced it has secured 1000 MHz in the 26 GHz spectrum auction, investing $277 million to further extend its leadership in 5G now - and into the future.
Five companies have won spectrum in the Australian Communications and Media Authority’s latest spectrum auction in the 26 GHz band. The 26 GHz band has been identified as optimal for the delivery of 5G wireless broadband services.
Samsung Networks Business to deliver the latest in mmWave 5G innovation, initially offering 5G mmWave radio solutions in both the 26Ghz and 28Ghz spectrums.
Materials used in future 5G networks will be different and more diverse and there will be rapid growth in demand for low-loss materials in 5G according to research firm IDTechEx.
Poking fun at Telstra by stating "You don’t need Australia’s fastest 5G… until you do", Optus aggregated its 5G spectrum bands of 3500Mhz and 28Ghz (mmWave) on top of existing 5G spectrum bands to deliver "unprecedented bandwidth and speed."
Scientists from Georgia Tech have found a way to reliably harvest the energy from 5G at 28Ghz, overcoming antenna problems that previously required such solutions to be within line of sight of a tower.
Chinese smartphone brand vivo conducted a live demonstration of 8K UHD video streaming powered by mmWave 5G, which the company says highlights its "strength in the research and development of 5G mmWave technology."
NEC claims it has achieved the first demonstration of a distributed-MIMO 5G system in the millimetre-wave frequency band in an office environment.
Over at Telstra's 5G Innovation Centre on the Gold Coast, Telstra, Ericsson and Qualcomm have “announced the successful completion of a new 5G maximum download speed record on a commercial network of 5Gbps for a single user” via a 5G NR data call.
The Australian Communications and Media Authority has announced that 15 applicants will be offered licences in the 26 GHz and 28 GHz bands, the first major allocation of 5G millimetre (mmWave) wave spectrum.
