Re: Qualcomm's 28 Ghz effort is too late
The new antenna technology is going to demand some clever and creative engineering to overcome the physics that allow some strange behavior to the wave beam as the " dominant beam path will be constantly changing based on environment, mobility and a slew of other factors." It will be interesting to see how the antenna designers cooperate with the software engineers.

Re: Qualcomm's 28 Ghz effort is too late
A pilot network in one of the heavily wired countries in the world. I'd be dumb as hell to start calling 5G winners on that basis. I remember seeing CLWR/Sprint's working WiMAX network in Baltimore way, way too long along. I also remember what happened with that!

 

Once we get to working commercial 5G networks in major cities across the world, and phones that can run on those networks then we can start calling winners and losers.

"5G mobility, then its serious."

Samsung 5G network going live at Pyeongchang next summer is fully mobile.

Too late? Ahahahahaha, come on man! Get serious. The early stuff is BS fixed wireless that won't even address the rural areas it would need to. 2019, 5G mobility, then its serious.

Qualcomm's 28 Ghz effort is too late
First Samsung 28 Ghz 5G network is already under construction and will go live by June of 2017, and will go through an 7 month long stabilitization and then demonstrated before visiting world press and telco executives. What Qualcomm has is just a lab technology years away from a commercial deployment.

Sorry, Samsung already won the 28 Ghz 5G RAN race. In case you haven't noticed, the participant that will supply 28 Ghz 5G RAN technology to White House US national 5G initiative is Samsung, not Qualcomm.

Qualcomm may have a better luck in IoT and further variations of LTE, but Qualcomm is  basically a non-player in 5G market.
