Samsung and SK Telecom have developed a prototype 5G switchboard based on the standalone standard (SA), the companies have announced.

5G will be deployed in 5G non-standalone (NSA) that will use 4G LTE networks in the beginning, and later switch to 5G SA that uses only 5G equipment for the network.

SK Telecom said deployment of 5G SA will offer near two times faster data processing speed and reaction time compared to 5G NSA.

The switchboard is modular in design and vendors can add accessory equipment for additional features, the telecommunications carrier said. Later, equipment with quantum security can be added for national defense agencies or financial institutes.

If being used for self-driving cars, where data must flow without interruption, data high-pass filter modules can be added, the company said.

Last month, SK Telecom said it had successfully synced switchboards of Samsung, Ericsson, and Nokia in preparation of deploying 5G NSA. The company also made its first call using the set up.

In the same month, Samsung announced a partnership with NEC to collaborate on 5G technology suites going forward.

South Korea plans to deploy 5G in March next year.

I'm a 50 year old PLC programmer from Burnley, UK. I severed my time as an electrician in the baking industry and soon got involved with the up and coming technology of PLC's. Initially this was all based in the Uk but as the years went by I have gradually worked my way around the globe. At first it was mainly Mitsubishi with a bit of Modicon thrown in but these days the industry leaders seem to be the Allen Bradley range of PLC and HMI’s.
