Samsung collaborates with Japan's NTT DOCOMO on 5G

By

It isn't just Nokia, Ericsson and Huawei who are major 5G players - there are companies like Qualcomm who make the 5G modems that go into phones, along with Samsung Samsung Electronics which is also another major player.

The company has announced its selection as a 5G network solution provider for Japan's NTT DOCOMO.

Samsung said it will "support DOCOMO with its innovative 5G technology, including O-RAN-compliant solutions, to bring enriched 5G services to users, advance digital transformation for businesses, and improve society at large."

We're reminded that DOCOMO provides "high-quality wireless network service to nearly 82 million users across Japan" and that "as part of its ongoing strategy to deliver an advanced network and provide customers an array of enhanced mobile services, DOCOMO leverages leading edge-technologies in its 5G network."

Sadayuki Abeta, the GM of the Radio Access Network Development Department at NTT DOCOMO said: "As a leading mobile operator, our goal is to provide our customers the best possible services for creating innovative, fun and exciting experiences and finding solutions to social issues.

“We are excited to collaborate with Samsung for the next phase of 5G Open RAN and accelerate the expansion of our ‘Lightning Speed 5G’ coverage in the nation.”

Satoshi Iwao, VP and Head of Network Division at Samsung Electronics Japan said: “We are pleased to be part of DOCOMO’s 5G networks and look forward to continued collaboration in advancing 5G innovation for their customers.

“Our goal is to leverage Samsung’s technical leadership to bring the best network solutions to mobile operators around the world, so they can deliver the next generation of transformative 5G services and electrifying user experiences.”

Stefan Pongratz, VP at Dell’Oro said: "The agreement between NTT DOCOMO and Samsung is significant.

“NTT DOCOMO has a history of being at the forefront with new and innovative technologies and this announcement cements Samsung’s position as a major 5G RAN supplier.”

Samsung reminds us that it has "pioneered the successful delivery of 5G end-to-end solutions including chipsets, radios, and core.

"Through ongoing research and development, Samsung drives the industry to advance 5G networks with its market-leading product portfolio from fully virtualised RAN and Core to private network solutions and AI-powered automation tools. The company is currently providing connectivity to hundreds of millions of users around the world."
