The company says the demonstrations underscore Samsung’s commitment to the development of next-generation communications in Africa through its long-standing expertise in the global telecommunications industry.

Samsung has partnered with several governments and major service providers in Africa to deploy and enhance high speed mobile and fixed broadband networks based on 4G LTE technology. In addition, Samsung has established solid business organisations in the region to continuously strengthen and expand its support for African service providers and carriers.

“A large proportion of the African population is comprised of young and ambitious people and Samsung believes that mobile broadband services will play a critical role in realising their economic development, just like we’ve seen in USA, Japan, South Korea and other Asian markets,” said Youngky Kim, Executive Vice President and General Manager in Telecommunication Systems Business at Samsung Electronics.

“We’re confident that Samsung is ready to contribute to this growth with customised LTE solutions for the African market by providing enhanced customer value through credibility and accumulated expertise in telecommunications;” says George Ferreira, Chief Operating Officer at Samsung Electronics SA.

It is very useful in African market which needs wide radio coverage at much lower cost. Through offering competitive End-to-End LTE solution including network systems, devices and chipsets, Samsung guarantees best quality data and VoLTE service.
