5G Millimeter Wave Benchmark Study 2018 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Signals Ahead: 5G Millimeter Wave Benchmark Study - Volume 1: Bending Light" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

SRG conducted what it believes is the first independent benchmark study of an operator's 5G network. For these tests, we used the Verizon Wireless 5GTF network in Houston, Texas where Samsung is the infrastructure supplier. Although the 5GTF specifications are not compatible with the 3GPP 5G NR specifications, we believe the performance characteristics of millimeter wave are very similar between the two sets of specifications.

Results

Millimeter wave signals are far more resilient than expected, even at distances exceeding several thousand feet. Tree foliage, passing school buses, buildings, glass, and parked cars impacted the received signal, but the resultant signals were still capable of delivering meaningful data rates. However, promising Gigabit data speeds to all homes may prove to be challenging, especially in the near-term.
