Samsung announced in a company blog today that the company has successfully developed millimeter-wave Ka band transceiver technology that will allow them to roll out a 5G cellular band in Europe around 2020. The new technology will play a crucial roll in 5G mobile communications and will provide data transmission up to several hundred times faster than current 4G networks. It sounds like a long time away, but seven years will come quickly and it should give service providers time to figure out new data plans that go by Terabytes and not Gigabytes! We will also need improved batteries as moving around all that data will surely use up some power!
5G mobile communications technology is the next generation of the existing 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network technology. 5G will be capable of providing a ubiquitous Gbps experience to subscribers anywhere and offers data transmission speeds of up to several tens of Gbps per base station.
