Samsung and SK Telecom have successfully tested a live-stream conducted inside of a racing car by using 5G mmWave solutions, the companies have announced.
The two companies tested live-streaming videos that were recorded inside a car that moved at 130 miles, or 210 kilometres, per hour. The live-stream reached download speeds of 1Gbps using 200MHz bandwidth of 28GHz spectrum.
The test was conducted at the Korea International Circuit, the country's F1 racing track, at Yeongam, South Jeolla Province, with multiple 5G mmWave basestations installed around the track. A video of the test has been posted on YouTube.
Multiple views of the car were streamed and broadcast through SK Telecom's broadcasting solution.
Samsung's Galaxy S10 5G smartphones were attached to the cars for the trial, in which the two companies tested live download and upload speeds, as well as handovers between them and the 5G cell sites on the track.
The next goal will be to reach 4Gbps, SK Telecom said.
