Qualcomm continues to focus on big, industry-sized challenges — infrastructure-level opportunities that often involve the very personal devices we use every day. They look at our phones, tablets, and wearables and imagine what else they can do with them. At the same time, they look at global data networks and wonder what more they can do with them. They think, they innovate, and they come up with solutions that drive mobile industries forward.
Samsung announced it is collaborating with T-Mobile US on new demonstrations and lab tests designed to bring the power of 5G mobile networks to the masses. Through this collaboration, the companies will assess next generation network development in real-world mobile use cases and applications, and conduct lab and field trials that demonstrate a range of innovative 5G-driven capabilities.
Under President Obama, we have seen technological breakthroughs and strategic investments that have propelled the United States to the forefront of wireless broadband—with world-leading 4G/LTE coverage for more than 98 percent of U.S. citizens. Today, the Obama Administration is announcing new steps to maintain U.S. leadership and win the next generation of mobile technology with the launch of a $400 million Advanced Wireless Research Initiative led by the National Science Foundation (NSF). This new program will enable the deployment and use of four city-scale testing platforms for advanced wireless research over the next decade and builds upon the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Spectrum Frontiers vote yesterday.
Samsung Electronics America today announced its participation as a board member of the Advanced Wireless Research Initiative (AWRI), a public-private partnership spearheaded by the White House to accelerate the development of next generation 5G wireless networks in the United States. In conjunction with the initiative’s member companies and more than 400 university researchers, Samsung will contribute its expertise in wireless network architecture and mmWave radio access technologies to help lead in the research and testing of next generation mobile networks.
At the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) RAN Meeting held in Bushan Korea from June 13 to 16, 2016, the first standard for the mobile broadband 5G high-frequency (6-100 GHz) channel model was approved. Huawei participated in 70+% technical topics and contributed innovative solutions to these topics. All the efforts are fundamental contributions to the 3GPP standard on 5G high-frequency channel model.
