It must provide mobile operators with flexible 5G solutions that are localized for each region with customized services to meet the requirements of the operators. NEC Vice President Atsuo Kawamura further states that the partnership with Samsung ensures that the two companies remain at the forefront of 5G end-to-end technologies worldwide.

Samsung announced earlier this week that it will be working with Qualcomm on 5G small cell development to enable “great 5G network speeds, captures, coverage and ultra-low latency”. Samsung is going to use Qualcomm’s FSM100xx small cell, which works on sub-6GHz and mmWave wavelengths. The products should appear in 2020.

Samsung was further chosen by Verizon for the launch of a 5G service for residents of parts of Sacremento in Lost Angeles, Houston and Indianapolis. It must provide a 5G router, a 5G Radio access unit and a digital unit. It also offers 5G ready solutions for both Sprint and AT&T.


NEC has signed a 5G supply deal with Japanese provider NTT DoCoMo. The provider plans to launch its new mobile network in 2020. Earlier this year, the two companies carried out several verification experiments for 5G technologies together.

According to that agreement, NEC will provide control units for 5G base stations, and use software upgrades to ensure that DoCoMo’s existing base stations and other equipment support 5G. According to Kawamura, the company will also supply NTT DoCoMo with “remote diagnostics and advanced security that combines 5G with the latest ICT”.
