SK Telecom builds system for new wave tech development

SK Telecom said on Sunday it had completed building a system to support the development of millimeter-wave (mmWave) technology, one of the keys to creating a 5G mobile network, at the Corporate R&D Center in Bundang, Gyeonggi, in cooperation with Samsung Electronics. With the launch of mmWave, the nation’s leading mobile carrier became the first company to install 5G equipment in its building in Korea. The company said mmWave will help the companies realize the 5G era earlier, since it uses 30GHz or higher frequency bands, which transfers data significantly faster than systems using 6GHz frequency bands.

The two companies have been trying to develop a system that operates frequency bands of 6GHz or higher for long-distance communication since October 2014.
