Samsung 5G-ready solutions advance Sprint network

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. has announced that its 5G-ready massive MIMO solutions on Sprint´s 2.5 GHz TDD-LTE network are now in commercial service, the company said.

As part of Sprint´s network, Samsung´s massive MIMO solutions deliver improved 4G LTE throughput and capacity to Sprint´s subscribers. Additionally, this helps provide Sprint with a seamless upgrade path to 5G New Radio (NR), utilizing the carrier´s deep 2.5 GHz spectrum.

In February 2018, Sprint announced its selection of Samsung as a massive MIMO provider for their future 5G mobile network launch in the US, an important milestone for the carrier. Samsung´s massive MIMO can provide a way for operators to inject new capacity into their network without having to purchase more spectrum or add new base stations.

It is being used by Sprint to significantly boost LTE network speeds and capacity for millions of US customers, while improving network efficiencies through advanced beam-forming.

Headquartered in Ridgefield Park, N.J., Samsung Electronics America, Inc. (SEA), is a recognized innovative provider of consumer electronics, mobile devices and enterprise solutions. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
