“Today’s success is based on a common specification built through the collaboration of multiple industry leaders. that will help facilitate the world’s first mobile 5G trial service at the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games,”
said Sungmok Oh, Head of Network Division at KT.
“KT will continue its efforts to test 5G interoperability between multiple vendors through 2016. while working towards deployment of a test network for in-depth verification in 2017.”
In that test Samsung and KT used 28 GHz spectrum and showcased full synchronization of wireless links. Along with it, they also showed the assignment of IP addresses to devices and implementation of security protocols.
“We’re very pleased with our success on the world’s first end-to-end 5G connection only a few months after the PyeongChang 5G SIG common specifications were finalized,”
said Paul Kyungwhoon Cheun, Executive Vice President and Head of NGC Team at Samsung Electronics.
“Samsung is enthusiastic to continue its collaboration with industry leaders across the globe. as we work to achieve future key next-generation milestones and draw 5G closer to our everyday communications.”
By early 2018, Samsung will deliver first mobile 5G trial which will then launch in 2020.
