Posted by at 11:29 am on October 4, 2010

Samsung, in collaboration with UQ Communications, demonstrated a trial WiMAX 2 network at CEATEC Japan with speeds reaching 330Mbps. Based on IEEE 802.16m, its speed was showcased on 1080P 3D and 16 1080P screens at the same time. Samsung used its existing Mobile WiMAX base station for the demo.

WiMAX 2 is faster than the original 4G network, while remaining compatible with current WiMAX networks. The standards for the new network should be in place in November. Samsung, like Intel,  is a proponent of the technology and hopes to bring out products based on the standard by the end of 2011.

Samsung equipment is used by 57 mobile operators in 36 countries.
