Samsung with Vodafone & Orange complete 4G calls over shared Open RAN in Romania

Published

on


In a trial initiative, Samsung Electronics, Vodafone, and Orange, two of Europe’s leading carriers, announced the completion of the first 4G calls across shared commercial networks in rural parts of Romania using Open RAN. Vodafone and Orange stated earlier this year that they would be testing Open RAN with RAN sharing across Europe. The two operators may benefit from the Open RAN ecosystem’s improved flexibility and innovation by adopting Samsung’s virtualized Radio Access Network (vRAN). RAN sharing lowers hardware costs, energy usage, and the requirement for duplicate locations by allowing network component to be shared.

RAN sharing will contribute to the widespread adoption of open RAN in Europe. After the successful integration testing at Orange’s Open RAN lab in France and Vodafone’s UK’s Open RAN development, Samsung contributed multi-RAT vRAN software as well as Open RAN-compliant radios for this endeavor. Both operators have already accomplished successful 4G calls through their pilot project and will shortly include 2G, which has previously been successfully tested in the lab, and subsequently 5G. It will be Europe’s first time that 2G will be completely integrated into a commercial open-RAN sharing environment.

Samsung has been at the forefront of the successful delivery of 5G end-to-end solutions, including chipsets, radios, and cores. Samsung moves the industry forward with its market-leading product portfolio, which includes vRAN 3.0, Open RAN, Core, private network solutions, and AI-powered automation tools. Currently, the firm delivers network solutions to mobile carriers that link hundreds of millions of consumers globally. This milestone shows Open RAN’s potential to modernize outdated hardware-based mobile networks, bringing more sustainability and intelligence to the RAN. Along with this, it also has the ability to provide new services more rapidly and efficiently.

Junehee Lee, Executive Vice President, Head of Global Sales & Marketing, Networks Business at Samsung Electronics, said, Samsung has been raising the bar on what’s possible with vRAN and Open RAN, and we are delighted to work with Vodafone and Orange to be part of the first Open RAN sharing initiative in Romania. As we continue to expand our footprint across Europe, including the recent large-scale Open RAN deployments in the U.K., we continue to push our innovative boundaries, empowering networks in Europe.”

Samsung has finally debuted its premium application, Expert RAW, for the Galaxy Z Flip 6 smartphones. Now, users will be able to take professional photographs with dedicated features. 

It is worth noticing that Samsung hasn’t dubbed its foldable a camera-centric smartphone. While it initially focused on only how it could bring more utility features for users to take advantage of the foldable’s uniqueness, over the years, the company has improved the camera lenses as well.

To make it more professional, the Korean giant has made Expert RAW available for smartphones. The application allows users to take advantage of different features such as ISO, shutter speed, and more.

The arrival of Expert RAW on the Galaxy Z Flip 6 opens the door for older devices, but this has not been officially confirmed. However, if a company wants to introduce the Expert RAW functionality for the Galaxy Z Foldables, then the One UI 6.1.1 update may be the perfect opportunity to unveil it.

It is worth noting that the Expert RAW for Galaxy Z Flip 6 provides an improved experience by optimizing the details of JPG and DNG image formats. More specifically, in the DNG, the part where details were intermittently lacking due to noise removal was improved by adjusting the noise level.
