4G LTE networks are still in the process of being rolled out in some countries and yet others are already looking towards the next level. Countries like Japan, US and China are working to commercialize 5G mobile technology and establish their dominance in the market but progress has been slow. Samsung is playing a pivotal role in the commercialization of 5G mobile technology, it has proposed a vision of 5G mobile communication system to a private organization that sets global telecommunication technology standards.

Samsung made its proposal at the 3GPP RAN 5G Workshop which took place in Phoenix, Arizona last week. For those who are unaware 3GPP is a private organization that decides technical standards and comprises of the major mobile communications providers and equipment firms from all across the globe. This particular workshop was attended by some 500 officials from the industry including officials from 60 mobile carriers. A phased standardization schedule has been proposed to set up the first standard for 5G networks including technologies of higher frequency bands above 6GHz by September 2018 with the timeline for the second standard set for December 2019. Many participating firms including but not limited to Samsung Electronics, Nokia, Qualcomm, Ericsson, SK Telecom and NTT DoCoMo have formed a consensus on this proposal since it lays down a path for effective standardization of 5G mobile communication technologies with multiple service options.
