Samsung Electronics marked its splash into the global fourth-generation telecom market in earnest with a contract for providing long-term-evolution equipment to Japan’s second-largest mobile phone operator. Samsung will be offering its LTE equipment to KDDI to help the firm launch its LTE services starting next year, the Seoul-based electronics company said on Monday.
KDDI’s plans follow close on the heels of NTT Docomo, Japan’s leading mobile phone operator that launched LTE services late last year. Samsung Electronics’ equipment will allow KDDI to smoothly manage the growing volume of wireless Internet traffic. At the same time, KDDI will be able to offer enhanced communication quality in lesser-populated areas with weaker communication signals.
