Samsung Electronics and Kyocera Communication Systems (KCCS) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to jointly expand the private 5G network business in Japan.
As their first collaborative project, the companies will implement a dedicated private network in the manufacturing facility, based in Japan, to rebuild it as a smart factory. Through this collaboration, both companies will help fulfill the full potential of private 5G networks by creating new value for enterprises and opening up new business opportunities through the power of next-generation cellular technology.
Together, the companies will deliver an industry-leading set of private 5G network solutions and services to various enterprises. Samsung will supply its leading end-to-end 5G solutions—including its RAN for mid-band and mmWave spectrums and cloud-native core—which will be the backbone of a flexible, reliable private network. KCCS will provide mobile devices, applications, and on-the-ground technical support for enterprise deployments and operations.
“Samsung’s private 5G network portfolio is designed to fit in any deployment scenario for various business purposes and we are excited to work with KCCS as we expand our 5G capabilities in Japan,” said Satoshi Iwao, Vice-President and Head of Network Division at Samsung Electronics Japan.
