Samsung Develops New 5G Radio Technology for Efficient 5G Deployments in Mid-Band Spectrum


Reading time ( words)

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 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.

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

01/11/2021 | Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007
CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.

CES 2020: The Intelligence of Things

01/06/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Show week for CES 2020 starts well ahead of the actual exhibition dates because it is huge. The organizers of CES state that there are more than 4,400 exhibiting companies and nearly three million net square feet of exhibit space. On the floor, you can find 307 of the 2018 Fortune Global 500 companies. Over the week, I-Connect007 Editors Dan Feinberg and Nolan Johnson will bring you some of the most interesting news, products, and announcements from 5G to IoT, semiconductor developments, autonomous vehicle technology, interconnect, fabrication materials, and much more.
