PLANO, TX – Verizon, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., continue to push the limits of 5G technology, using innovation to continuously drive greater performance from this transformational technology. Recent lab trials using mmWave spectrum aggregated allowed the companies to upload 711 Mbs.

“Our unique mmWave build makes us stand out. Even as we push towards massive and rapid 5G service expansion using our newly acquired midband spectrum, we are increasing our commitment to mmWave usage,” stated Adam Koeppe (Senior Vice President of Technology Planning at Verizon). We will continue to grow our mmWave footprint in order to provide unique enterprise solutions and game-changing experiences to the most dense parts of our network. We had over 17k mmWave cell sites at the end of last year and are on track to add 14k more in 2021, with over 30k sites on air by the end of this year, and we’ll keep building after that,” said Koeppe.

Previous multi-gigabit speeds have been recorded on downloads before, but this is the fastest speed the companies have been able to reach while uploading data to the network. Speeds approaching those seen in this recent trial (for comparison, 700+ Mbps is the equivalent of a one GB movie uploaded in about 10 seconds) will pave the way for uploading videos, pictures and data to the cloud, social media accounts, or sharing directly with others in densely populated venues like downtown streets, concerts and football stadiums. These speeds, whether you use a traditional mobile connection or fixed wireless access will allow students and employees working remotely to upload large files and complete simultaneous editing in the cloud. They also make it possible for colleagues to collaborate and share information with one another. These uplink speeds will open new avenues for private networks to be used by enterprises. Higher uplink speeds could enable manufacturers to use artificial intelligence to detect small defects in products that are invisible only through ultra HD video feeds. These speeds will also boost other upload-intensive solutions like multi-location, massive video capabilities and augmented real-time customer experiences.

About the trial

The demonstration surpassed current peak upload speeds by combining 400 MHz of Verizon’s 5G mmWave frequency and 20 MHz of 4G frequency using the latest 5G technologies, including mmWave carrier aggregation and Single-User MIMO (SU-MIMO). Network technology used in the demo included Samsung’s 28 GHz 5G Compact Macro and virtualized RAN (vRAN) and Core (vCore) along with a smartphone form-factor test device powered by the flagship Snapdragon(r) X65 5G Modem-RF System.

Snapdragon X65 is Qualcomm Technologies’ 4th generation 5G mmWave Modem-RF System for phones, mobile broadband, compute, XR, industrial IoT, 5G private networks and fixed wireless access. These Modem-RF solutions will be used to create commercial mobile devices that are expected to go on sale in late 2021.

Samsung’s Compact Macro delivers 5G mmWave by bringing together a baseband, radio and antenna in a single form factor. For fast build-out of 5G networks, this lightweight and compact solution can be installed on both the sides of buildings and on utility poles. The Compact Macro achieved first Common Criteria (CC) certification against Network Device collaborative Protection Profile (NDcPP), an internationally recognized IT security standard. In collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies, and Verizon, we are excited about reaching these ultra-fast speeds. This will allow for differentiated 5G experiences, and provide more immersive mobile services to all users,” said Junehee Lee (Executive Vice President and Head, R&D, Networks Business, Samsung Electronics). “Samsung looks forward to harnessing the full potential of 5G through new breakthroughs that will bring truly transformative benefits to people around the world and across the enterprise landscape.”

“Enhancing uplink speeds opens the door to new possibilities with 5G mmWave, in transit hubs, downtown areas, shopping malls and crowded venues, while also powering robust 5G fixed wireless access services in homes and small businesses,” said Durga Malladi, Senior Vice President and General Manager, 5G, Mobile Broadband and Infrastructure, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “Our collaboration with Samsung and Verizon exemplifies how we are collectively driving 5G mmWave commercialization and enabling new and exciting user experiences – everyday.”
