Samsung's LTE modem technology supports industry-first 6CA

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a world provider of advanced semiconductor technology, has developed LTE modem technology for the company´s next-generation mobile processors that supports 6CA (carrier aggregation) for the first time in the industry, the company said.

The new technology has successfully achieved a maximum downlink speed of 1.2 gigabits per second (Gbps).

Earlier this year, the Samsung Exynos 9 Series (8895) SoC presented its Cat.16 LTE modem with 1.0 gigabit (Gb) downlink speed and the industry´s first 5CA support. By working closely with Anritsu, a telecommunication measuring instrument provider, Samsung´s new Cat.18 6CA-supported LTE modem technology achieves up to 1.2 Gbps downlink speed.

The 20-percent improvement in maximum downlink speed can allow mobile device users to download a full-length movie in HD resolution within 10 seconds. Users will also be able to enjoy buffer-less video calls and mobile live-broadcasting.

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. inspires the world and shapes the future with transformative ideas and technologies. The company is redefining the worlds of TVs, smartphones, wearable devices, tablets, cameras, digital appliances, medical equipment, network systems, and semiconductor and LED solutions.
