Russia Mobile WiMAX

Samsung Enters Russian Mobile Internet Market With WiMAX

Other Topics: WiMAX Mobile Subscriber Unit Certification, WiMAX Perspectives

September 2, 2008

Seoul, South Korea -- South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics Co. (KSE:005930) said Tuesday it has recently entered Russia's mobile Internet industry by supplying a technology that helps facilitate high-speed wireless Internet connectivity.

Scartel, a Russian mobile carrier launched last year, has recently begun a trial run of its mobile WiMAX service in Moscow and St. Petersburg, using Samsung's WiMAX networks and other facilities, according to Samsung.
WiMAX, the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is one of the latest in telecommunications technology that allows wireless data transmission at broadband-like speed. South Korea has its own technology, dubbed WiBro, in commercial service.

The two companies plan to setup as many as 1,600 access points in cities by early 2009, and to begin commercial service by then.

"We plan to fully cooperate (with Scartel) for WiMAX to make a successful launch in Russia by using our know-how obtained from experiences in the U.S., Japan and the Middle East," said Choi Ji-sung, head of Samsung's telecommunications division.

Samsung has recently beefed up efforts in exporting equipment and networks for the wireless technology. It has signed a deal with Sprint Nextel Corp., Motorola Inc. and Intel Corp. to cooperate in developing and commercializing WiBro in the US.

It has also forged a deal with Japan's UQ Communications Inc. which calls for the setting-up of infrastructure that will allow commercial
WiBro services to begin in Japan starting next year.
