Samsung broke another industry speed record for 5G, the company announced today. Specifically, Samsung collaborated with Verizon and Qualcomm to conduct a 5G demonstration in Plano, Texas, where a record-breaking data upload speed of 711 Mbps was achieved.

In practical terms, an upload rate of 711 Mbps would allow a user to upload a 1GB video file in roughly 10 seconds. The transfer rate is fast enough to allow high-definition videos to be recorded and uploaded to the cloud or on social media in real-time.

5G technologies that can achieve these high transfer rates are expected to be widely used by enterprises. The technology can be utilized on the production line for real-time image analysis and defect detection, and thus, it can improve manufacturing.

How did Samsung achieve 711 Mbps upload on 5G?

The demonstration was done using Samsung’s 5G and 4G base stations and the Snapdragon X65 5G modem.

More specifically, the high upload rate was achieved through carrier aggregation technology by combining two or more frequency bands in Samsung’s 5G Compact Macro solution. The same 5G mmWave Compact Macro station was used by Samsung to speed up transfer rates in Seoul’s Metro network during a demonstration held last month.

According to the VP of Samsung Electronics’ Network Business Development Team, the company is “one step closer to realizing a differentiated 5G service and an immersive user experience” thanks to this demonstration.
