Before we move into the list of all the winners, let’s start with Samsung’s recognition for the vRAN solution.
In one of the highlights from the Awards, Samsung won CTO’s Choice Award for its 5G vRAN (Virtualized RAN) solution. The South Korean firm won the award for Outstanding Mobile Technology Award and the Best Mobile Technology Breakthrough at MWC 2022.
Samsung’s vRAN solution offers operators a range of options for efficiencies and management by deploying a software-based 5G network infrastructure.
The CTO’s Choice Award is one of the most prestigious in the Awards. A panel of industry experts consisting of 21 CTOs from prominent operators around the globe nominates the winner in this category.
Junehee Lee, Executive Vice President and Head of R&D, Networks Business expressed his delight over winning the award. He said, “We are honored that Samsung Networks’ fully-virtualized 5G RAN was recognized as the supreme champion with the CTO’s Choice Award, representing our dedicated efforts in network advancement”.
“Samsung believes vRAN is a powerful enabler for network transformation and will pave the path towards next-generation networks. As a global leader in virtualization with successful commercialization experiences, we continue to lead the journey, redefining what is possible for 5G network innovation,” he added.
The award comes on the back of Samsung’s wide-scale deployment of vRAN solutions in North America, Europe, and Asia. The company is also the first to commercialize 5G 64T64R Massive MIMO radios on 5G vRAN in a 3.5 GHz spectrum also called C-band frequency.
Samsung’s vRAN solution runs on COTS servers. This innovative off-the-shelf technology offers equal performance to that of hardware-based equipment. Samsung claims its vRAN provides reliability, scalability, and flexibility for mobile operators to maximize their network’s performance.
