Samsung has announced that it will be demonstrating ‘new possibilities for the future of mobile communications’ when it showcases a portfolio of network solutions, including 5G, at MWC 2017.
The new solutions demonstrate Samsung’s comprehensive 5G vision and cloud-based end-to-end portfolio from network virtualization, E2E orchestration, in-building and campus solutions to 5G.
Youngky Kim, President and Head of Networks Business at Samsung Electronics, said ‘The industry is undergoing many dramatic changes, with people requiring new ways of communication yet to be experienced. Samsung is seeking to maximize user happiness by identifying key drivers and implementing the newest solutions. At Samsung, our innovative spirit will extend to the 5G era to enrich people’s lives by making day-to-day tasks easier, simpler and automated.’
Samsung plans to feature its latest advancements in 5G solutions for both mmWave and below 6GHz spectrums, with a live demonstration of mmWave 5G Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) showing a maximum data throughput of 4Gbps delivered to the 5G FWA house. Samsung describes 5G FWA as ‘a game-changer in the entire global broadband market and also a catalyst for the mobile 5G era’.
Samsung also plans to introduce live video analysis involving 5G use cases, showing huge amounts of video information collected in real-time, and also a latency-free analysis of the videos at the Mobile Edge Cloud. These ‘big data’ applications are relevant to markets such as crime prevention, shopping mall logistics management and customer purchase pattern analysis.
Samsung will also demonstrate its virtualized RAN network operation, which will evolve to a Unified RAN, integrating Legacy 4G and 5G together, as well as its automated end-to-end orchestrator. Through cloud network slicing, the adoption and operation of new services and applications such as big data analytics tools and video IoT platform will be made easier with embedded artificial intelligence.
Also on show from Samsung will be professional solutions in the areas of VoLTE Quality Monitoring & Analysis (VoMA) and CognitiV Data Traffic Monitoring & Analysis (DMA), designed to optimize mobile data service quality by detecting abnormal situations or traffic congestions at a cell unit.
Samsung will also conduct a live demonstration to show 1Gbps speeds on LTE-Advance Pro technologies with 3-carrier aggregation, 4×4 MIMO and 256QAM technologies, as well as 5-carrier aggregation using smartphone-type device.
Other demonstrations will include in-building and campus solutions including small cells and WiFi access points.
