SK Telecom Deploys Samsung LTE Network

SEOUL -- Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, an advanced network solutions provider, today announced the deployment of a 4G LTE network for SK Telecom, the leading mobile service providers in Korea, available from July 1st in Seoul, the capital of Korea.

Based on the objective to provide differentiated service quality in the initial stages of transfer to an LTE service, SK Telecom adopted Samsung’s latest Smart LTE solution to the commercial LTE network. Samsung Smart LTE solution enables SK Telecom to effectively handle variable mobile data traffic, through separate allocation and operation of LTE network elements as occasion demands.

Through introducing 4G LTE services, SK Telecom can fully meet subscribers’ desires to enjoy an LTE service five to seven times faster than existing 3G networks, in the most cost-effective way.

Moreover, by adding Circuit Switched (CS) fallback function, SK Telecom and Samsung intended to improve not only data service quality using LTE networks but also voice service quality using existing 3G network. Circuit Switched (CS) fallback is a 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project)-defined standard solution, providing seamless and stable voice services by supporting a smooth mobility from LTE network to WCDMA network.
