The demands of next-generation networks require a comprehensive and integrated technology approach that adapts to the high data rates, near zero latency and increased density inherent in the new standards. Additionally, the need to support legacy LTE and LTE-A operation simultaneously with 5G NR is essential for cost-efficient deployments. LTE-A Rel 14 and 5G NR also enable many new use cases including smart cities, automated factories, telemedicine, IoT and virtual reality.
“Samsung is committed to driving the next wave of 5G innovation by working together with key industry players including Marvell,” said Jaeho Jeon, executive vice president and head of R&D, Networks Business at Samsung Electronics. “Leveraging expertise in LTE and 5G commercialization, we will continue to explore the potential of the advanced technologies to push beyond the limits of today’s new radio technologies.”
“Our wireless infrastructure platform provides our tier 1 partners a comprehensive solution to enable LTE-A and 5G NR deployments from the radio access network through the edge to the core,” said Raghib Hussain, chief strategy officer and executive vice president of the Networking and Processors Group at Marvell Semiconductor, Inc.
