NTT DoCoMo To Test Out 5G Technology

docomo-msSo, you think that 4G connectivity is the bee’s knees. Well, NTT DoCoMo of Japan has news for you buddy. It seems that the Japanese carrier intends to test out 5G technology with the likes of other hardware vendors, of whom will include the likes of Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Fujitsu, NEC, Nokia and Samsung. Just to have a better idea on how much faster 5G connectivity is, Samsung claimed that they used 64 antennas to touch a whopping 1Gbps, and even so, that is still short of what 5G speeds ought to be. The South Korean company did mention that 5G will be ready for prime time action by the end of this decade, so there’s still plenty of time left for you to enjoy 4G speeds on your smartphones and tablets without fear of obsolescence.

In NTT DoCoMo’s tests, it will involve the usefulness and practicality of running 5G speeds on high frequency bands that are above 6GHz. 5G would involve data-transmission at a high-speed of 10Gbps, which so happens to be 1,000 times more than the existing capacity of 4G LTE. In this test, it will be able to tell just how well this frequency will support 10Gbps, never mind if a large number of devices intend to hook up to the network simultaneously. 5G testing will kick off this year at DoCoMo’s R&D Center in Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, while expect outdoor trials to begin in 2015.
