The Samsung Networks Booth at MWC 2017 showcases a range of exciting potential applications for 5G technology – the next phase of mobile connectivity – as well as the lengths Samsung is taking to make those possibilities reality.
Featuring interactive exhibits exploring the company’s latest mobile technologies, solutions and developments, including its announcement of the world’s first end-to-end 5G product portfolio.
Samsung’s new end-to-end 5G product lineup includes 5G chipsets (RFIC and Modem), a 5G Radio base station – Access Unit(top left), a 5G Home Router – Customer Premise Equipment(top right), and a Next-Generation Core.

When 5G FWA (Fixed Wireless Access) networks expand to diverse use cases, they’ll offer a highly advanced and flexible means to provide network connections for many different devices, including IoT technology and even connected cars.
As more devices connect, they’ll require more base stations to support them, which typically connect to the network via fiber optic cables. This exhibit elaborates on how 5G wireless backhaul will connect base stations directly to the core network, which means more data capacity in a given area and easier deployment for terminals like CCTV and signage.
Samsung also announced a full lineup of small cell products for homes and enterprises that support shared spectrums (CBRS and LAA) and wireless access points – to tackle network overload and service quality degradation, especially in indoor environments.
