DALLAS -- Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung) today unveiled a new CDMA core network solution that the company expects to commercially offer U.S. wireless network operators by the end of the first quarter of 2006. The solution includes a Wireless Softswitch (WSS) for the U.S. and a Media Gateway (MGW).
Samsung's core network solution is an advanced, next-generation mobile switching center (MSC) that gives wireless operators a highly flexible, scaleable architecture that supports an open architecture operating system and shares a common server platform for WCDMA (MSC server), CDMA (WSS), Wireline (SS) and IMS Server Applications. It continues to support legacy wireless services such as voicemail, SMS, push-to-talk, and music ring-back tones.
Specifically, Samsung's WSS supports next-generation network protocols SIP, VoiceXML, and Megaco, making it a future-ready solution that allows subscribers to easily migrate to new, advanced packet-based IMS services via a simple software upgrade. Samsung's IMS provides next generation wireless services including Voice over IP (VoIP), multimedia conferencing, networked gaming, location-based services, instant messaging, and IP-TV.
Samsung revealed its new core network solution at the company's Technology Summit in New York City, an annual event showcasing the breadth of Samsung's telecommunications expertise - from wireless and broadband network systems, to wireless handsets and business communication systems. In addition to the core solution announced today, Samsung's wireless and broadband network systems group showcased other offerings including its various Base Stations (In- building, Pico, Micro, Macro) that support CDMA 2000, WCMDA, and Mobile WiMax.
Samsung has successfully deployed its Softswitch (SS) solution, which has been incorporated into Samsung's common platform in South Korea and the Netherlands. The company is the leading supplier of mobile switching centers in the world's most advanced CDMA market, South Korea.
"Samsung is a proven leader in developing and deploying advanced wireless network solutions throughout Asia, Europe and, increasingly, in the U.S." said Tom Jasny, Samsung's vice president of wireless and broadband network systems. "With market-proven systems like the one we're announcing today, we're confident that 2006 will be a solid year for us in the U.S. market."
