BARCELONA, Spain �This week, the networks division of Samsung Electronics America, Inc. concluded a series of successful mobile, fixed wireless, and in-building penetration �5G� wireless tests at Verizon�s Basking Ridge, N.J. headquarters.

Using Verizon�s FiOS wired network and their own Hybrid Adaptive Array antenna radio technology, Samsung delivered 5G wireless speeds over milimeter band spectrum in several real-world use cases � including in-building and mobile environments. During the trials, Samsung also demonstrated 4K UHD video content transmission over-the-air while in a moving vehicle using automatic beamforming multiple-input and multiple-output technology.

In another test, �Samsung demonstrated the power of a 5G network by successfully streaming live 360 degree virtual reality content in 4K UHD, consisting of 17 independent video feeds, to Samsung Galaxy phones with Samsung Gear VR.

Samsung�s tests were conducted as part of the activities associated with the Verizon 5G Technology Forum, a group dedicated to the acceleration of 5G requirements, standards and technical innovation. 5G technology is expected to drive the next wave of wireless broadband and the Internet of Things, connecting billions of devices and accelerating low latency gigabit speeds for richer content and experiences.
