Samsung Electronics has developed the world’s first complete commercial 5G FWA solutions, unveiling new possibilities for the future of mobile communications. The demonstrations, planned to take place during the event at the Samsung Networks booth, will leverage the 5G solutions to showcase unexplored service opportunities and business cases.

The 5G FWA solutions includes commercial form-factor 5G home routers (CPEs) for both indoors and outdoors, 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) comprised of a radio access unit and virtualized RAN, a next-generation core, as well as AI-powered 3D radio frequency planning tools and services.

Samsung's 5G FWA solutions will enable 5G connectivity for deployments covering a broad range of use cases.

These are the first 5G millimeter-wave products in the world to secure government regulatory approval—a milestone achieved through close collaboration with US Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) Office of Engineering and Technology.

Samsung said its solutions will enable 5G connectivity for deployments covering a broad range of use cases, greatly enhancing an operator’s ability to explore various business cases and scenarios, the South Korean tech behemoth said in a press release.

Indicating how “At MWC 2018, Samsung plans to show how our homes, cars and cities can be transformed by building user-centric 5G networks,” the company's President and Head of Networks Business Youngky Kim said, “Since the beginning of our 5G research in 2012, Samsung stood firm among industry players to trust in the potentials of the millimeter wave spectrum."

The solutions will be deployed in the first commercial 5G network to be launched in 2018 in the U.S.
