Samsung betting on 5G to jump-start networks business
Suwon , South Korea - Arab Today

Trailing its rivals after misplaced bets on wireless technology standards, Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. aims to become a global top-three player in 5G mobile networks by moving quickly in markets like the US, an executive said.
The world’s top smartphone maker ranks well behind peers such as Nokia Corp, Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. and Ericsson in the networks business, after backing CDMA and WiMax wireless technologies that never caught on globally.
The South Korean giant now sees an opportunity to catch up by moving fast and early on 5G, the wireless technology that telecom equipment makers are rushing to develop as the next-generation standard.
“We plan to move quickly and want to be at least among the top three with 5G,” said Kim Young-ky, Samsung’s network business chief.
“It’s important to get in early.”
5G wireless networks could offer data speeds tens of times faster than 4G technology, enabling futuristic products such as self-driving cars and smart-gadgets that tech firms expect to become ubiquitous in the homes of tomorrow.
Major network firms are targeting the US as it moves rapidly ahead with plans to open spectrum for 5G wireless applications. Some US officials expect to see the first large-scale commercial deployments by 2020.
South Korea and Japan are also racing to deploy 5G hoping the next-generation standard will boost economic activity. South Korean carrier KT Corp. aims to offer trial 5G services during the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

LOFTY AMBITIONS
Samsung is targetting more than 10 trillion won ($8.6 billion) in annual sales of 5G equipment by 2022, a spokeswoman said.
This would be a big step up for a networks business that generated less than 3 trillion won in revenue last year, compared with 100.5 trillion won in mobile device sales.
Crucial to its plans is a partnership with New York-based Verizon Communications Inc. to commercialize the technology. Other firms working with Verizon on 5G include Nokia, Ericsson, Qualcomm and Intel Corp.
Verizon conducts field tests this year and aims to begin deploying 5G trials on home broadband services in 2017 in the US, likely the first 5G application commercially available before a broader mobile network standard is agreed.
Samsung — which was a distant fifth player in the global 4G infrastructure market in January-March, according to researcher His — declined to comment on what clients it expected to receive 5G equipment orders from.
As the industry has yet to decide on a 5G mobile standard, Samsung plans to start by selling equipment such as base transceiver stations and home receivers for fixed wireless broadband access.
