Samsung Releases Super-fast Modem With Download Speed of 1.2 Gbps

Mobile communications might have just gotten better as Korean technology giants, Samsung Electronics presents a super-fast advanced LTE (long-term evolution) modem that is capable of download data at a mind-blowing 1.2 Gig-byte per seconds (Gpbs).

The new modem was introduced by an official announcement on the company’s official page. According to the statement, the Carrier aggregation (CA) modem combines a given number of component carriers with various bandwidths to improve data transfer rates and network performance.

What does this mean?

  • Soon downloading full-length HD movies can happen within seconds (Yaay!)
  • Smooth live-broadcasting and streaming
  • Higher consumption rate of online media content

“With the increase of high-quality online content services, the demand for high-performance LTE modems continue to rise as well. The 1.2Gbps maximum downlink speed with 6CA support highlights Samsung’s leading design capabilities and well-positions Samsung for the upcoming 5G era.” –Woonhaing Hur, The Vice President, System LSI Protocol Development at Samsung Electronics

Samsung did not take this giant stride alone, in close collaboration with Anritsu, a telecommunication measuring instrument provider, Samsung was able to deliver this breakthrough technology. Samsung increased the previous model’s aggregation capability from five bandwidths to six, enabling the new LTE modem technology to perform more stable, seamless and faster data transfers.

By the end of this year, the new Samsung’s mobile processor LTE modem technology is expected to be in mass production. There are also speculations that the new technology will be named Exynos 9810 which will debut with the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ sometime next year.

What year we will get to enjoy this technology in this part of the world, we do not know.
