Samsung supports Verizon's 5G home launch

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. has announced its support of Verizon´s 5G Home service, which will provide 5G broadband Internet service to consumers in Los Angeles, Sacramento, Houston and Indianapolis, the company said.

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.

5G Home is built on Verizon´s Ultra Wideband 5G network and will deliver typical network speeds around 300 Mbps and, depending on location, peak speeds of nearly 1 Gbps, with no data caps.

Samsung is a pioneer in network innovation, with a broad portfolio of solutions that provide support for operators, enterprises, and consumers across LTE, Wi-Fi, and 5G. Samsung Networks has achieved numerous “world´s firsts”, from key technologies like carrier aggregation and voice over LTE to the first commercial femtocell, and most recently the first FCC-certified end-to-end 5G products.

A wholly owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., SEA delivers a broad range of consumer and business solutions, ranging from IT and home appliance products to cellular network infrastructure.
