SAMSUNG Electronics Begins Exporting WLL Handsets

SEOUL, Korea - May, 6, 1998 - Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., Samsung Electronics will export approximately US$12 million worth of CDMA wireless local loop (WLL) handsets (model: SCW-F200, operates on 80MHz) to Intercellular Co. of Nigeria. This is the first Korean export of this product.

The WLL handset is a wireless alternative to the regular wired telephone used in the average home. This emerging new segment of the telecommunications market is expected to amount to two hundred million units by 2005.

Most WLL handsets offer only voice services. On the other hand, the SCW-F200 can be connected with a PC or facsimile machine to send text data. It also provides a memo function, voice mail, and telephone number editing capability. In addition to these value-added features, the SCW-F200 offers the mobility of a cellular phone and the voice quality of a wired set.

The new Samsung Electronics' WLL handset has a four-line liquid crystal display and has conference call and call waiting functions. The WLL system connects the subscriber wirelessly to the telephone company that offers wired services and can also be linked to a cellular CDMA network.

The wireless local loop is built around base stations that wirelessly connect subscribers in a radius of between two and fifteen kilometers. As a result, there is no need to bury telephone cable or replace aging wires. Installation, maintenance and repair of the system are very easy and the system is not susceptible to damage from natural disasters.

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a US $13 billion (1997) flagship company of Korean-based the Samsung Group, is a world leader in electronics, with operations in more than 60 countries.
