Current 4G LTE technology is present on almost every phone, including the most affordable ones. The next step is to implement 5G technology, which is expected to launch in a year or two. Actually, Verizon and AT&T are aiming to launch 5G networks sometime next year.
LG Electronics has now announced that it has demonstrated a new full duplex radio (FDR) technology that can be used with 5G devices and networks. The new FDR technology is based on a broadband multi antenna technology called multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) that run on the 80 MHz frequency range. It can boost frequency efficiency in the fifth-generation (5G) network environment, allowing it to transfer data at twice the speed of TDD.
