Samsung has unveiled its portfolio of 5G mobile network solutions at Mobile World Congress.
Samsung’s 5G products include consumer devices for fixed wireless connectivity, a 5G radio base station unit, and next-generation core network infrastructure.
Pre-commercial versions of Samsung’s 5G equipment are in deployment in trial networks.
“With pre-commercial deployment of our 5G products already underway in the US, we’re starting to see some of the earliest evidence of the potential for new and compelling 5G-driven services,” said Samsung.
Samsung will focus on extending its 5G portfolio with support for additional mmWave band support and below-6GHz connectivity, it said.
