5G tests show how fast is real-world speed
For the past month, there are a lot of fuzz about 5G’s speed. So, Qualcomm is looking for the answer many people is asking and they will release a 5G simulation tests at Mobile World Congress. Instead of just figuring out or trying out theories as to what would be the 5G’s offer in the future. The Qualcomm company stood up and tried it out. Qualcomm’s tests modeled real world conditions in Frankfurt and San Francisco. It is based on the location of existing cell sites and spectrum allocations in the two cities.
The simulations factor in conditions like geography and different user demands on the network. Also a wide spectrum of devices with various levels of LTE and 5G connectivity for different speeds. That is in order to accurately give an idea of what to expect when these networks will launch. But the simulations are intended only to show kind of 5G NR or New Radio that might exist next year.
This Frankfurt simulation is the more basic network. It is based on 100 MHz of 3.5GHz spectrum with an underlying gigabit-LTE network on 5 LTE spectrum bands. The browsing jumped from 56 Mbps with the normal 4G to 490 Mbps for the normal 5G. Download speeds also improved. 5G’s download speed is at 100Mbps while with the LTE it’s only Mbps.
But the San Francisco simulation was a more interesting.
The Qualcomm modeled a network operating in 800 MHz of 28 GHz mmWave spectrum. It is built on top of a gigabit-LTE network on four licensed LTE bands. And it is in addition to License Assisted Access (LAA) bands.
Whether the 5G will release next year or the next, people are looking forward to a faster internet experience ever. This is the future and the next generation will be so grateful for this technology the past generation’s been doing.
