Samsung Electronics and SK Telecom said on June 18 they have agreed to work together to upgrade the performance of the commercial 5G network and develop technologies related to 6G.

Samsung, which provides end-to-end 5G solutions ranging from modems and chipsets to smartphones, has been providing its equipment to South Korea’s leading mobile carrier for the commercial rollout.
 


As SKT is currently building additional base stations to expand nationwide coverage, the two companies formed a partnership to upgrade the 5G technology and expand its adoption in other areas, including self-driving cars and in-building solutions. 

Samsung and SKT also agreed to carry out research and development of core technologies for 6G, and explore new business models for the next-generation cellular technology, the firms said.

Last week, SKT signed agreements with Finnish firm Nokia and Sweden’s Ericsson to step up collaboration 6G network R&D, in time for President Moon Jae-in’s visit to the Nordic nations.
