Qualcomm, in partnership with Fujitsu, held a 5G call this week using operator aggregation. The technology takes advantage of multiple bands in the spectrum to increase bandwidth, and consequently maintain stability in the most varied signal conditions, in addition to achieving higher speed peaks.
To establish the connection, the Non-Standalone (NSA) network was used, mixing the frequency bands of 3.5GHz and 4.9GHz, in addition to a Fujitsu radio station and a test phone equipped with Qualcomm’s X55 modem. .
The companies were able to reach 3Gbps with the Sub-6 spectrum, a very promising result. “This achievement in partnership with Fujitsu allows us to reach the potential for continuous and more comprehensive connectivity of 5G,” says Durga Malladi, Qualcomm’s vice president and general manager of 4G and 5G.
The most interesting thing is that the results will not take long to reach the hands of consumers, with the tested technology planned to reach the market later this year. It is worth remembering that the vast majority of the tops of the market line already come equipped with Qualcomm’s X55 modem, thus leaving the implantation of the novelty in the hands of the operators.
Several companies have been conducting tests with 5G, with the intention of increasingly evolving the new connection standard. OPPO was the first company to make a video call using VoNR (Voice over Next Radio), successor to VoLTE, used for audio and video calls on the 4G LTE network. Meanwhile, Samsung broke the 5G speed record, reaching no less than 8.5Gbps.
