Samsung Electronics Develops 6CA Next-Generation LTE Modem

Samsung showcases 6CA LTE modem tech

Samsung's 6CA modem technology showed a download speed of up to 1.2Gbps (Cat.18), an improvement of 20% compared to current technology, according to the results of measurement made by equipment made by Japanese company Anritsu specializing in communications instruments.

Today, Samsung chose to set another record with a new Cat.18 LTE modem that offers 6CA with the ability to achieve download speeds of up to 1.2Gbps!

The download speed of 1.2Gbps means that you can download a two-hour HD movie within 10 seconds.

Earlier this year Samsung presented its new flagship Exynos 9 Series (8895) mobile chip, the first mobile processor in the industry to integrate a gigabit LTE modem which supports 5CA (Carrier Aggregation) for downlink, allowing for there to be multiple data streams at once. The 6CA technology will allow the combination of six frequency bands. Improving modem performance in this manner lets consumers enjoy high-quality data services such as high-definition video calls and live broadcast.

Evacuation order may be lifted Friday as California wildfire slows
The cause of the Detwiler Fire remains under investigation. "This fire has really devastated the area, business is just flat". The fire came within 50 miles of Yosemite on Friday, but was not growing toward the park, Cal Fire's Isolano said.

The Korea-based semiconductor giant will start mass production of mobile processor adopting the new Cat.18 6CA-supported LTE modem technology by the end of this year.

In addition to carrier aggregation, the modem supports 4×4 Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output antenna design and the higher-order 256 quadrature amplitude modulation scheme. The 3GPP now defines carrier aggregation as a maximum of five component carriers, each having up to 20 megahertz of bandwidth. However, Sprint recently promised four carrier aggregation and achieved 330 Mbps on a single channel via "massive MIMO" trials with Samsung.

It can also use enhanced Licensed-Assisted Access to aggregate licensed and unlicensed spectrum, such as that used by Wi-Fi.
