We feel that the most underrated connecting standard that could possibly alter the way we interact with each other is 5G connectivity. All we continue to hear is companies like Intel and Qualcomm pushing the speed limits of LTE technology with a different kind of chip, but it looks like 5G will comfortably be able to break those speed barriers. As demonstrated, 5G connectivity should effortlessly be able to handle high-definition video calling from country to country.
Samsung Demonstrates Its First 5G Tablet Prototype While Teaming up With Verizon and KT to Show This Standard Will Change Video Calling Very Soon
Using Samsung’s end-to-end 5G solutions, it was demonstrated that a live video calling is taking place between Minneapolis, USA, and Seoul, South Korea. This reveals the fairly obvious scenario of what we are to expect in the coming future when it comes to the future of wireless connectivity.
Ed Chan, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Architect at Verizon has appeared very excited about the partnership between KT and Samsung.
“By working closely with industry leaders like KT and Samsung, we are finally making 5G a reality. Seeing Samsung’s 5G end-to-end solutions in action, including a working prototype 5G tablet, underscores how important our collaborative relationship has been in helping accelerate the availability of commercial 5G mobility for customers. As we say at Verizon, ‘we don’t wait for the future, we build it.’ We are glad to be working with like-minded partners to build the 5G future globally.”
Samsung facilitated the demonstration at the event by supplying lots of next-generation hardware ranging from 5G access units, 5G home routers, its 5G-capable tablet, virtualized RAN and virtualized core network. The tablet itself is capable of handling multi-gigabit 5G speeds and keep in mind that this is not going to be limited to slates only.
Qualcomm also demonstrated a fully-functional 5G network with a phone prototype, showing that the first portable device to tout a modem like this is definitely going to be a smartphone.
Are you waiting for the time when you will comfortably be able to perform video calls while out in the open? Tell us down in the comments.
