Samsung Supports Verizon’s 5G Home Launch with 5G End-to-End Solutions
Los Angeles, CA. – September 13, 2018 – Samsung Electronics America, Inc. today announced their support of Verizon’s 5G Home service, which will provide 5G broadband Internet service to consumers in Los Angeles, Sacramento, Houston and Indianapolis. Verizon’s 5G broadband Internet service is the world’s first 5G commercial network.
The service is supported by Samsung’s FCC-certified 5G solutions, which includes a compact 5G home and outdoor router, 5G Radio (Access Unit, Digital Unit-integrated type), and virtualized radio solutions. After a series of pre-commercial 5G trials spanning a variety of markets, Samsung and Verizon have applied lessons learned – from network design considerations to optimization techniques — to the newly available 5G service.
“Collaborating with Verizon on 5G – from pre-standard specification development to trials across the U.S. and now to the delivery of their first 5G commercial network – has been a rewarding and exciting experience,” said Magnus Ojert, Vice President, Networks Division, Samsung Electronics America. “Verizon’s new service offering will provide consumers in the four 5G Home cities with ultra-fast and reliable service via our 5G solutions.”
