Samsung’s 5G vision and commitment

Picture artificial intelligence (AI) applied to everyday life. Picture IoT, smart cities and connected vehicles that are safer because they can communicate with each other and with their surroundings. Picture all of your data and services fully accessible, anytime and anywhere. That picture of a fully connected world of connected devices is why Samsung has been making big moves in 5G networks and technology, which will become the connective tissue for a new connected lifestyle. And it’s why we’ve been investing in companies that give us even greater ability to navigate the 5G future.

 

We’ve also made an important commitment: All of our devices will be IoT-enabled—and intelligent—by 2020. In fact, we’re ahead of schedule: 90% of our devices are already IoT-enabled. With blazing 5G speed, minimal latency, and massive connectivity, 5G will transform the way we live, work, get around and more.

5G networks will bring access to content and connectivity wherever, whenever

VR and 8K video content

You’ll be able to stream multi-player VR games and 8K video content simultaneously from the cloud to their mobile device, or even a moving vehicle.

5g sensors

First responders will be able to send robots into burning buildings—complete with sensors and HD cameras—to locate people in need of rescue. Local leaders will be able to make communities smarter using 5G-enabled sensors to report instant data on traffic, environmental conditions and public safety.

stadium technology

People will be able to connect and interact simultaneously on a mass scale so that stadiums can offer enhanced fan experiences (customized 4K video, alternate field angles, and VR streaming) at sporting events.

5G is here

5g wireless technology

First 5G millimeter wave commercial products authorized by the FCC


Samsung developed the world’s first complete commercial 5G fixed wireless access solutions, which includes: commercial form-factor 5G home routers (CPEs) for both indoor and outdoor environments, 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) comprised of a radio access unit and virtualized RAN, a next-generation core, as well as AI-powered 3D radio frequency planning tools and services.

In February 2018, the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted authorization of Samsung’s 5G access units. These are the first 5G millimeter-wave products in the world to secure government regulatory approval—a milestone achieved through close collaboration with the FCC’s Office of Engineering and Technology.

Verizon 5G Home network launched in the U.S. in October 2018 providing 5G broadband internet service with Samsung’s 5G Commercial Solutions.

5g mobile technology

5G innovations continue around the world


Samsung successfully completed a trial with KDDI (Okinawa, Japan) at a 30,000-capacity baseball stadium showcasing a live feed of 4K video content downloaded and streamed simultaneously on 50 5G tablets.

With KT and Verizon, we conducted a 5G international video call between Minneapolis, MN and Seoul, Korea during the Big Game.

Working with Cisco and Orange (UK) on the first multi-vendor 5G fixed wireless trial in Europe, we demonstrated successful inter-network operations that will enable 5G’s evolution.

Massive MIMO technology


Samsung’s commercial massive MIMO solution is a 64 transmit and 64 receive (64T/64R) configured radio with active antennas in a compact and lightweight form factor. The Samsung Massive MIMO solution will provide gigabit level speeds as well as inter-band FDD carrier aggregation with downlink support for 256QAM. Operators gain the ability to increase network capacity without the high costs of buying more spectrum or adding new base station sites.

5g network technology

The first U.S. 5G networks have begun to roll out in 2018


Samsung's Next-Generation Core solution is built on the principles of virtualization, hardware independence and open platforms. By shifting to a completely software-driven environment, operators gain the ability to optimize utilization of server hardware resources, and the ability to pool resources from multiple data centers.

Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs) are split into individual pieces of software in a process called ‘decomposition,’ allowing for on-demand assignment of hardware resources. You can deploy individual functions only as needed by a given service, and with ‘Network Slicing,’ multiple virtual sub-networks can be established that isolate different types of traffic and handle each in an optimal manner based on its own requirements.
