SEOUL, Nov. 7 (Korea Bizwire) – SK Telecom Co. said Tuesday it has developed data processing technology for the fifth-generation (5G) network that is capable of handling data 10 times faster than the long-term evolution (LTE) network.
The mobile carrier said the technology allows a packet switched network to process massive amounts of data at superhigh speed. The company said all data transmitted to the network from smartphones and mobile devices must go through packet switching procedures.
While the LTE packet switching was able to handle 20Gb data per second, the new technology is able to process 200Gb per second.
The latest development paves the way for faster and more stable processing of data ahead of the imminent commercialization of the 5G network, it said.
