Fifth-generation mobile networks have already begun to be deployed around the world, and telecommunications companies are continuing to refine and improve their technologies. For example, Ericsson has announced a new record for data transfer rates using 5G technologies when using commercial equipment.
According to the company's report, it managed to achieve a download speed of 4.3 Gbit/s in 5G networks using proprietary equipment that combines 800 MHz of the millimeter-wave spectrum. According to Ericsson, this figure is higher than all previous records by an average of 1 Gbit/s. Information was transmitted to a test smartphone equipped with a 5g modem Qualcomm Snapdragon X55.
"This is a fantastic achievement. 4.3 Gbps is equivalent to downloading one hour of 4K content in just 14 seconds. Ericsson is already taking the next steps to ensure that service providers can provide the best data transfer rate in the 5g millimeter range. The solution that we have successfully tested will not only provide higher speeds, but also a large-scale deployment of 5G networks and new business opportunities," the company said.
According to Ericsson representatives, the new equipment will be used for commercial purposes by the end of this year. Earlier it was reported that the 6G network will allow you to download data at speeds up to 8000 Gbit/s, but you will have to wait for their appearance for another ten years.
