According to reports, the company partnered with Australia’s NBN Co in a recent field trial to leverage Samsung’s second-generation 5G modem chip’s 28GHz Compact Macro device and third-party 5G mmWave customer premises equipment (CPE) for fixed wireless access (FWA).

In this test, the maximum download speed can reach 2.75Gbps, and the average upload speed is 61.5Mbps. The 5G device, which combines a base station, radio, and antenna, is already in use by network operators in Japan, South Korea, and the United States, Samsung said.

Samsung NetworksSamsung’s beamforming technology allows different operators to aggregate mmWave 5G bands for higher download and upload speeds. The company said the test used eight component carriers (8CC), which means it used 800MHz of mmWave spectrum aggregation.

NBN will use a total of AU$750 million, including AU$480 million from the Australian Government, to expand the coverage of its FWA network by 50 percent, thereby improving Australia’s mmWave 5G network.

Samsung said the new achievement proves that mmWave 5G is equally applicable to densely populated urban areas and remote rural areas, which will narrow the communication gap between urban and rural areas.
