Networks Business

Providing next-generation network infrastructure and solutions with outstanding technology and successful experience.

Samsung Electronics is leading the transition to 5G with substantial investments in the sector over the past ten years. We achieved a number of key innovations in communication technologies and set a new direction for next-generation services by building a global industrial ecosystem, leading international standards development, and launching the first pre-commercial services together with major telecommunications providers around the world. Samsung offers an end-to-end product portfolio for 5G commercial service introduction, including 5G Radio and Core network equipment, user devices, and chipsets (eg, modem, RFIC, DAFE). We are uniquely positioned to be a trusted partner that can address topics such as the spectrum environment of individual service providers and future business models. Through this, we are spearheading the introduction and commercialization of innovative technologies in leading markets such as South Korea, the United States, and Japan. Based on our advanced technology, experience, and business portfolio, we launched the world's first 5G Home service in the United States in October 2018 and commercialized the world's first mobile 5G service in South Korea in April 2019. In Japan, we played a key role in the commercial launch of 5G in March 2020, and we are actively expanding in additional markets around the world.
