Samsung Electronics Develops 6CA Next-Generation LTE Modem

Samsung showcases 6CA LTE modem tech

Samsung develops 6CA-supporting LTE modem tech

"The 1.2Gbps maximum downlink speed with 6CA support highlights Samsung's leading design capabilities and well-positions Samsung for the upcoming 5G era". The new system combines up to six frequencies rather than five and will offer more stable data transfers, Samsung says.

The theoretical 1.2Gbps speed is nice, but in real life you'd be lucky to get a fraction of that in North America. If this is integrated in the Samsung Galaxy S9 next year, the smartphone could offer higher LTE speeds than your home fibre connection as well, and may be able to download a full-HD movie in just 10 seconds.

The new LTE modem was developed in partnership with Anritsu, a telecommunication measuring instrument provider.

'Consider e-cigarettes in tobacco control plans', study recommends
The authors also admit that anti-tobacco campaigns, such as TIPS , is helping people quit just as much as vaping is. People who used e-cigarettes were more likely to kick the habit than those who didn't, a new study found.

CA (carrier aggregation) is technology that realizes wide bandwidth by grouping multiple frequency bands into one.

It also provides users with high-quality resolution, making it possible to make video calls without buffering and also enjoy advanced featured such as live broadcasting. The 3GPP now defines carrier aggregation as a maximum of five component carriers, each having up to 20 megahertz of bandwidth.

It supports 4x4 MIMO (multi-input, multi-output) and higher-order 256 quadrature amplitude modulation scheme to maximize data transfer rate. So far, there's no indication that Samsung's Exynox chips will be available for the U.S. version of the Galaxy S9.

Scientists edit human embryos for first time in US
Scientists from the country were the first to use the technique on human embryos to fix a gene that causes fatal blood disorder. When reached by MIT Technology Review , Mitalipov declined to comment on the results, which he said are pending publication .

Samsung Electronics is planning to apply 6CA 1.2Gbps LTE modem technology to a mobile processor that the company will begin to mass-produce at the end of the year.

Samsung's model is the first to support 6CA (carrier aggregation).
