Since China Mobile Ltd. (NYSE: CHL) can encourage the development of a 3.5GHz-based silicon and hardware infrastructure by itself, that makes the availability of low-cost 3.5GHz chipsets much more likely."
So Nokia and Ericsson will be competing against Huawei and ZTE in low-band 5G market segment in Europe and China. Look that how well that turned out in the current LTE market, where Huawei and ZTE are getting richer and richer while Nokia and Ericsson are getting poorer and poorer.
Samsung is shielded from a bloody price war with Chinese vendors because China has no plans for mmwave 5G thus Chinese vendors have no plans to compete in the mmwave market segment.
DOCOMO's 5G Drive Gains Momentum in Trials with Samsung and Huawei
TOKYO, JAPAN, November 16, 2016 --- NTT DOCOMO, INC. announced today that in a joint trial of 5G technologies with Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., it has successfully achieved a data speed of more than 2.5Gbps with a mobile device that was in a vehicle travelling 150km/h, thereby verifying the feasibility of stable connectivity for 5G mobile devices in fast-moving trains.
The trial took place on November 7 in Fuji Speedway, a motorsport racing circuit in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. Transmissions were conducted using the 28GHz high-frequency band, one of the candidate bands that the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications is considering to designate for commercial 5G networks in Japan.
To date, no test had achieved a successful wireless data transmission to a fast-moving device due to the large path-loss of high-frequency radio signals. In this trial, however, the problem was overcome with massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technologies that incorporate beamforming, which concentrates radio waves in a specific direction, and beam tracking, which adjusts the beam according to the fast-moving mobile device's location.
