Samsung Electronics announced its plan to demonstrate 4th Generation (4G) mobile technology at the annual Samsung 4G Forum in Jeju Island, Korea.
Demonstration will take place at the specially designed bus in mobile
circumstances reaching 100 Mbps data transmission as well as at the display area
inside forum venue to show speeds of 1Gbps of data transmission.
A demonstration bus will be moving at speeds of 60 km/h to show multi-cell
Handover (the process of transferring an ongoing call or data session from one
channel connected to the core network to another) with data speed of 100Mbps. A
live broadcast of the Forum, VOD, and internet access will be shown simultaneously
in a demonstration bus allowing delegates to experience the stability and speed of
4G connectivity of 100Mbps data speed.
1 Gbps data speed under nomadic circumstances is 50 times faster than current
Mobile WiMAX technology. It takes about 2.4 seconds to transfer 100 MP3 files
(300MByte), 5.6 seconds to transfer 1 Movie (800MByte) at speeds of 1Gpbs. Samsung
will demonstrate 1 Gpbs data speed at nomadic circumstances by showing 32HD
channel broadcast (20 Mpbs) download, Internet access and video telephony all at
the same time. Furthermore, a 3.5 Gbps data transfer demonstration will be shown
using 8X8 MIMO(Multi-Input Multi-Output) technology.
Samsung?s 4G technology demonstration is a next generation wireless communication
service, a step up from last year?s Mobile WiMAX demonstration. The Korean-based
company has recently announced its plans to provide Mobile WiMAX systems and
handsets to Sprint Nextel and lead the industry in next generation
telecommunications technology. Additionally, Samsung has plans to commercialize
Mobile WiMAX with nine major operators in seven different countries such as US,
Samsung hosts an annual 4G Forum to discuss about technology development and
standardization of future telecommunication technology. Around 175 high-profile
industry representatives from 20 countries meet to discuss the key technologies
for 4th generation mobile communications at the 4th Annual Samsung 4G Forum from
August 30th to September 1st covering the "Service Requirements & Spectrum for
ITU defines 4G technology as a future wireless telecommunications technology
allowing data transfer rates of 1Gbps at nomadic circumstances and 100Mbps at
mobile circumstances. The spectrums for 4G technology will be decided at WRC
(World Radiocommunication Conference) in October of 2007. The 4G mobile
communications format is expected to become commercially available around 2010.
