5G Trial Hits 19.1 Gbps Using Nokia's cmWave technology

Nokia Networks and SK Telecom reported an over-the-air transmission speed of 19.1 Gbps.

The joint 5G trial in South Korea used Nokia's cmWave technology, 256 quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), 8x8 Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) transmission and 400 MHz of bandwidth. This capacity would enable over-the-air delivery of a full-HD movie in a matter of seconds.  


Some highlights of the trial from Nokia:

  • Demonstrates access point sending downlink transmission over the air and receiving it at the mobile terminal
  • Evaluates radio channel performance at cmWave frequency band
  • Provides runtime feedback while moving the mobile terminal or blocking paths between the access point and the terminal

"With the world's first demonstration of the cmWave technology, we have reached a significant milestone towards realizing 5G. The 19.1Gbps transmission speed we achieved almost meets one of the key capabilities of 5G defined by the ITU-R. SK Telecom will continue to work closely with Nokia Networks to maintain this momentum towards creating a new era of communications," stated Alex Jinsung Choi, Chief Technology Officer, SK Telecom.

SK Telecom and Nokia Collaborate on 5G


SK Telecom and Nokia signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to collaborate on the development and verification of 5G mobile technologies. The companies will conduct joint research on core 5G technologies such as the gigabit-level data communications and cloud-based virtualized base stations. They plan to establish a test bed at SK Telecom’s R&D Center in Bundang, Seoul. One area of R&D will be cmWav
