Turkcell and Samsung organised what they call the first live 5G trial in Turkey. Guests of the event got the opportunity to witness live 5G for the first time in the experience zones of UHD live streaming, cloud gaming, 360-degree camera and VR streaming by using Samsung’s 5G fixed-wireless access (FWA) products, combined with the infrastructure of Turkcell.
Thanks to 5G FWA technologies, high-quality gigabit connections can be made in homes and offices where there is no fibre infrastructure. In addition to Maltepe Plaza, Samsung’s 5G FWA products were tested in Istanbul Technical University and Kadikoy, a dense province of Istanbul.
Back in February, Samsung unveiled the world’s first complete commercial 5G FWA products, comprised of 5G radio (access unit and virtualised RAN), 5G routers and next-generation core. Using in-house technology and assets, Samsung created the first commercial ASIC-based 5G modems and RFICs.
