On Sunday, February 4 – Samsung Electronics, KT, Verizon joined to demonstrate Samsung 5G solutions and use cases, including a prototype 5G tablet device, and a successful live video call conducted over 5G between Minneapolis, USA, and Seoul, Korea during a sponsored sports event. The 5G international video connection, which featured Samsung’s 5G end-to-end (E2E) solutions in each location, served as an example of how the use of commercial 5G mobile devices and connectivity is growing closer to reality.
This successful test of the 5G device is the result of ongoing collaboration between the three technology leaders. Verizon, KT, and Samsung will continue to work together to advance the development of 5G technology, device availability, and new and exciting use cases.
Since 2015, the three companies have been working closely on 5G research and development, including in Verizon’s 5G Technical Forum (5GTF) and KT’s PyeongChang 5G Special Interest Group (5G SIG), which collectively released early 5G specifications with the aim of building a strong 5G ecosystem.
