Next gen mobile tech promises massive data boost

Samsung says it has made a significant breakthrough in the development of the next generation of mobile communications (5G).

The company says that the work could lead to mobile networks capable of delivering transmission speeds in the tens of gigabits per second. It has developed an adaptive array transciever capable of transmitting data at a rate of 1.056 Gbit/s at a range of 2km.
Samsung Electronics says that “the array of 64 antennae could be a viable solution for overcoming the radio propagation loss at millimeter-wave bands.” It suggests applications such as the transmission of 3D content and ultra HD video.
