Reliance Jio is gearing up for its full commercial launch of its services across the country and is all set to rattle India’s data market by offering 4G data at lowest rates in the world. “Mission of Reliance Jio is to take India from data shortage to data abundance. Jio makes India the highest quality, lowest…
In a major breakthrough, Huawei announced that it had achieved a 115 Gbps transmission speed over the air with a 5G wireless technology prototype in one of its research facilities.
The research achievement sets a benchmark for realizing the company’s vision of providing to individual mobile subscribers a fiber-like 10 Gbps speed, more than 100 times faster than what is currently possible on smartphones and smart devices, information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider said in a release.
The 5G prototype utilized a novel transceiver architecture operating on the 70-90GHz spectrum band.
Advanced transmission technologies for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) and orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) were used in conjunction with an innovative multi-antenna precoding technology. The prototype demonstrated it could overcome out-of-band emission leakage for flexible spectrum utilization, while also reducing peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) for improved energy efficiency, which allows for longer terminal battery life.
The prototype also demonstrated a multipath-resistance, single-frequency full-duplex radio transmissions 5G radio architecture that will double spectrum resource savings and will start to unify conventional TDD and FDD spectrum usage for 5G.
Huawei believes that 5G networks will emerge by 2020, and that 5G wireless technologies will not only substantially evolve telecommunications technologies, but will have a revolutionary impact on the global information and communications technology industry.
Earlier in a seperate statement, the company also announced that it will invest a minimum of US$600 million in research and innovation for 5G technologies by 2018.
At the same time, Huawei has been named as a key member of the European Commission’s new 5GPPP (5G Public-Private Partnership) Association formed at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014. 5GPPP is a flagship research program for the European Union’s “Horizon 2020” research and innovation framework.
