Samsung’s-5G-Tech for Efficient 5G Deployments in Mid-Band Spectrum
New Samsung technology doubles bandwidth support of
its mid-band portfolio, helping operators minimize hardware
needs and simplifies 5G rollouts Samsung Electronics has
developed a new 5G wideband radio technology that expands
bandwidth support for its next-generation radios, including Massive
MIMO radios, to help operators drive more flexible and cost-effective
5G deployments. With this new technology,
Samsung will extend the bandwidth support of its 5G radios to
400MHz—double the 200MHz supported by its current commercial radios.
With wider bandwidth support, Samsung’s radios will help operators
maximize the utility of their mid-band spectrum for 5G networks
while using less hardware. The new technology will help operators
minimize the number of radios required when managing spectrum
in various deployment scenarios. This includes when an operator
owns non-contiguous frequencies within 400MHz of bandwidth.
Operators can also use this solution for RAN sharing, where they
actively share network infrastructures with other operators
through joint deployments.
Mid-band frequencies deliver a combination of wide coverage,
high speeds, and low latency. Samsung’s new radios will help
accelerate operators’ 5G rollouts in the mid-band spectrum.
“We are proud to develop new solutions that can help operators
drive deployment efficiency by minimizing hardware changes and
reducing installation costs—even as they expand their spectrum range,”
said Dong Geun Lee, Vice President and Head of H/W R&D Group,
Networks Business at Samsung Electronics. “Through our technical
expertise and industry-leading 5G capabilities, we’re excited to
continue delivering innovative 5G solutions that will bring more
benefits to operators and their customers.”
Samsung’s new wideband solutions, including Massive MIMO radios,
will be commercially available in early 2022, offering more operational
and deployment advantages to operators.
The new 5G radio technology is another innovation for
mid-band 5G spectrum support, following Samsung’s
