SAMSUNG Hosts 3rd Annual Samsung 4G Forum 2005

JEJU, Korea – August 29, 2005: Samsung Electronics hosts the 3 rd annual Samsung 4G Forum 2005 at Jeju Island , Korea , from August 29 to 30. Around 140 high-profile industry representatives from 24 countries meet to discuss the key technologies for 4 th generation mobile communications.



Samsung's 4G Forum is growing in terms of scale and of importance. The members of the Forum believe working together can accelerate the availability of solutions and make the key issues that need to be addressed more understandable.



This year's theme of the Forum is “Revolution of Radio Access & Key Technologies for 4G,” giving members two full days of intense briefings on virtually every aspect of planning, deploying and managing the 4G technology.
Wireless Broadband (WiBro), a home-grown Korean standard closely related to the mobile WiMAX, will be demonstrated for the first time with hand-over technology.
Samsung Electronics' Ki Tae Lee, president of Samsung's Telecommunications Network Business, says, “We are heavily involved in the research of WiBro equipment and handsets as well as other core technologies related to the 4G mobile communications. For a successful deployment of the 4G technology, it's imperative that we define the vision for the 4G services and applications that effectively meet the users need.” He adds, “I expect this year's Samsung 4G Forum to be a unique and update session, where experts explore and share ideas on 4 th -generation mobile technologies.”
The 4G mobile communications format is expected to become commercially available around 2010. In preparation, Samsung holds more than 220 patents related to 4G mobile communications. It also has 18 of its members on executive committees at several different industry organizations related to 3 rd- and 4 th- generation mobile communications, including 3GPP and WWRF.




About 4 th Generation Mobile Communications Technology


 Annual Samsung 4G Forum

Technologies for beyond 3G can be approached either by evolution-based or revolution-based visions. As 3G technology is becoming more and more stable, the time has come to explore and seek out ways to establish common visions for the next generation to come. SAMSUNG 4G Forum was created with this goal in mind. By inviting prominent representatives from different telecommunications sectors to participate in this Forum, we aim to stimulate interest and promote the development of 4G standards, business opportunities and research. This forum will provide industry, academia, standardization bodies and service providers a unique opportunity for both promoting their own visions, as well as acquiring a balanced view on 4G technology strategies and prospects on a global level.
Encouraged by the fact that some visions on 4G are broadly shared, the Samsung 4G Forum will be committed to carry out its mission: bringing to the table industry experts, academia, operators and regulators to create a fluid and multi-perspective dialogue on 4G. We believe that it would be highly beneficial for all the involved sectors to create, at an early stage, a common understanding of what 4G should be. Each year, the Samsung 4G Forum has a distinctive theme, although the development of the 4G air interface is one of the key topics of each event. A summary of the past, present and future of the 4G forum is outlined as follows:
