Samsung Networks Business launches operations in Australia to bring next-gen 5G networks to life Featured


Samsung Networks Business to deliver the latest in mmWave 5G innovation, initially offering 5G mmWave radio solutions in both the 26Ghz and 28Ghz spectrums.

Samsung Electronics Australia has announced it will open its telecommunications networks operations, Samsung Networks Business, in Australia, initially offering 5G millimetre-wave (mmWave) radio solutions, including Compact Macro, in both 26GHz and 28GHz spectrums.

The announcement follows a series of successful commercial deployments of 5G networks by mobile operators in a range of markets including Canada, New Zealand, and the United States, using Samsung’s latest 5G solutions.

Samsung Networks Business will commence operations in 2021 as a network vendor, and explore the potential of 5G mmWave technology to support the nation’s digital transformation with next generation networks technology.

“The launch of Samsung Networks Business in Australia will open incredible opportunities for potential partners seeking to explore how the pinnacle of Samsung’s innovation in telecommunications can support the future of network connectivity in this country,” said Garry McGregor, VP of Mobile at Samsung Australia.

“This announcement comes at a critical moment for mobile operators and government agencies as they consider future opportunities in 5G mmWave technology.”

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) opened applications for telecommunications carriers to participate in an auction to secure high-band 5G spectrums for future deployments. The auction will involve the sale of 2.4GHz spectrum within the 26GHz band across 27 geographic regions across Australia.

Globally, Samsung Networks collaborates with major mobile operators in a range of markets including Canada, India, Japan, and Korea, as well as the United States. Most recently, Samsung Networks deployed 4G and 5G solutions for one of New Zealand’s major telecommunications carriers.

“Samsung has invested in network innovation for more than a decade and is an established, trusted network technology provider in some of the most advanced markets in the world through multiple 4G and 5G deployments. We look forward to sharing more news about our plans for the Australian market.” McGregor added.

In January 2021, Samsung Networks’ 5G RAN solution achieved First Common Criteria (CC) Certification against the Network Device collaborative Protection Profile (NDcPP), an internationally recognised IT security standard.

The company’s certified base stations are among the first 5G products to be listed on the U.S. National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) Product Compliant List (PCL) as well as the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security Product List. In April of last year, using its mmWave solutions, Samsung Networks also achieved one of the industry’s fastest 5G download speeds of 8.5Gbps across multiple devices.
