MTS Names Samsung Electronics Best Supplier 2014

Samsung awarded for successful commercial LTE network deployment

Samsung Electronics has been selected by Mobile TeleSystems (MTS), a leading telecommunications operator in Russia and CIS region, as “Best Supplier of the Year 2014”. Samsung was recognized for the high quality solutions supplied and level of services delivered in the annual partner competition.


“We are delighted to be chosen as the best Supplier of MTS and look forward to continuing our partnership in the future,” said Joonho Park, Senior Vice President and head of Global Sales & Marketing at Samsung Networks Business. “Our partnership extends from retail to LTE infrastructure solutions, and further into B2B areas. We’ll continue to make all efforts to bring the most advanced LTE experience to the market with our proven LTE network systems.”


“Since we began working with Samsung in 2013 on the commercial deployment of our LTE network, Samsung has impressed us with its ability to build mutual trust in the process. This award is a testament to its achievements with us and we hope that our continued partnership will help us deliver an incredible mobile experience to our subscribers,” said Vice President, Chief Procurement Officer of MTS Valery Shorzhin.


MTS highlighted the success of a joint project between the two companies in building large scale 4G networks across Russia. Samsung and MTS came together in a partnership in 2013 to build LTE network in the North-West Federal District of Russia including St. Petersburg and Leningrad Regions, Pskov, Komi, Arkhangelsk, Murmansk and other cities. Samsung will continue to collaborate with MTS to expand network coverage and increase capacity.


The rating of suppliers was based on the results of a large internal survey that provided feedback from a number of departments within MTS. More than 50 criteria were assessed including product quality, solution reliability, customer service, transparency and professionalism in business communications.


Samsung’s LTE solution is backed by key accomplishments over 30 years of experience and leadership in developing and commercializing telecom technologies. With years of proven field experience in LTE technologies, Samsung has successfully partnered with dozens of mobile service providers, facilitating their implementation of the most advanced LTE networks.
