Samsung has secured another 5G client in Canada and as a result of the new collaboration, the Korean tech giant has been selected as SaskTel’s sole vendor of 4G/5G RAN (Radio Access Network) and Core technologies.
SaskTel claims that it is confident in Samsung’s state-of-the-art 5G technology and the exceptional connectivity inherent in their 5G solutions. Samsung will be responsible for supplying SaskTel with all the hardware and software necessary to ensure a successful entry into 5G territory.
Don Morgan, Minister Responsible for SaskTel, says the collaboration between Samsung and SaskTel for the deployment of 5G solutions is an important step towards setting the foundation of: smart cities, next generation virtual healthcare, immersive education, smart agriculture technology and next level gaming.
Meanwhile, Samsung is obviously pleased with the fact that it has once again increased its presence in the Canadian 5G space. SaskTel isn’t the first or the only 5G client in the country. Videotron has also signed a 5G contract with Samsung all the way back in 2019, and last year Samsung has agreed to empower network operators TELUS with 5G technologies.
Samsung is one of the world’s largest 5G equipment supplier in the midst of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the company’s presence is only getting better as the global infrastructure improves.
