Samsung SPH-M8100 : Samsung Electronics, a leading provider of telecommunications network systems and handsets, is set to demonstrate its Mobile WiMAX technology and new products. While Samsung had previously showcased its Mobile WiMAX technology at several events, the demonstration at CES is significant because it is the first showcase in the US since Samsung and Sprint-Nextel agreed last August to work together on the major US carrier's 4G wireless broadband initiative, which will adopt the Mobile WiMAX (IEEE 802.16e) technology standard. Sprint's partners in its 4G wireless broadband initiative -- Samsung, Intel and Motorola, will conduct live demonstrations of Mobile WiMAX through live video conferencing between their booths. |

At the annual Samsung 4G Forum in August 2006, a successful demonstration illustrated Mobile WiMAX's performance and proved that it can indeed be migrated to 4G. Data transmission speeds of 100Mbps were achieved on a moving bus and speeds of 3.5Gbps were achieved under stationary conditions. The technology has already been commercialized in South Korea since May 2006, and Samsung now provides Mobile WiMAX network solutions to various service providers in North and South America, and Asia. The SPH-P9000 and SPH-M8100 will be launched in South Korea in the first half of 2007. No plans have been made for their introduction in the US.
