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 Boost

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

recent announcement of the Mobility Enhancer.

Mobility Enhancer is Samsung’s new AI-based technology that

improves beamforming performance in its Massive MIMO radios,

potentially increasing the throughput by up to 30 percent in

mobility environments.


Samsung 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 virtualized 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.
