Press Release: Vivo and Qualcomm Collaborate On Breakthrough 5G Antenna Technology

Vivo collaborates with Qualcomm to address a critical 5G development milestone with their ground-breaking antenna technology.  This collaboration has resulted in the successful design and integration of new 5G mm-Wave (millimeter wave) antenna arrays into a Vivo commercial form factor as well as the measurement of system-level over-the-air performance.

This milestone is significant as the arrival of 5G is creating major design challenges for smartphone manufacturers and network operators.  To fully support the rollout of 5G services, even greater complexity and tougher requirements have been added to antenna designs and technologies.

For end users, mm-Wave technology can attain higher data rates to enable the 5G peak data rate of around 10-20 times higher than that of existing 4G LTE technology, providing a better wireless experience especially with AR, VR, AI, and UHD (ultra-high definition) video applications.

It is expected that both 5G sub-6 GHz and mm-Wave antenna technology will be deployed in every major market around the world, with some markets by 2019 and others to follow in 2020.  Beyond this collaboration, Vivo is also proactively applying for patents and publishing international research papers on mm-Wave antenna designs to prepare for the arrival of 5G age. .

This latest innovation is another example of Vivo’s dedication to break new ground and to lead in critival industry initiatives such as 5G development.
