Verizon, Ericsson and Qualcomm Achieve Peak 5G Speed of 5.06 Gbps

Verizon, Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies have demonstrated 5G peak speeds of 5.06 Gbps. Using 5G mmWave spectrum with carrier aggregation, a technology that combines multiple channels of the spectrum to provide greater efficiency for data sessions transmitting over the wireless network, the companies combined eight separate channels of the spectrum to achieve the multi-gigabit speeds.

When fully mature, 5G technology has the potential of reaching speeds up to 10 Gbps, latency under 5 milliseconds, and service deployment times of 90 minutes. It will allow mobile connections at speeds of up to 500 km/h with the ability to manage over a million devices per km2 and data volumes of 10 Tb/s/km2. Verizon and its collaborators are driving hard to maximize the potential of this developing technology.

Brian Mecum, Vice-President of Device Technology at Verizon feels their strategy from the beginning has always been to reshape the world by driving innovation and leading the way in deploying the keenly differentiated 5G Ultra-Wideband experience customers can only get from the mmWave based 5G network. It is the 21st-century infrastructure that will shape the future. This latest achievement will provide genuinely differentiated service for their consumers on mmWave.
