Our response is based on Samsung's Superior Design, Technology Leadership and Brand Recognition. We are convinced that Samsung's drive for innovation will help develop Egypt MOI's prominence within the wireless marketplace.
Samsung is pro-actively supporting a competitive and dynamic ecosystem for WiMAX technology. Samsung is traditionally not a standalone chipset provider, but we are developing our own 802.16e chipset for use in Samsung's Mobile WiMAX infrastructure and devices. Samsung is working closely with various chipset companies to potentially secure alternative chipset solutions for our Mobile WiMAX deployment.
Radio Access Network Flexibility
Samsung is committed to driving industry standards and our own internal product development to provide the kind of mobility performance for Mobile WiMAX that other wireless operators have enjoyed in our CDMA, EV-DO and W-CDMA networks.
Samsung's second generation Profile C RAN architecture (aligned with WiMAX Profile C) is now available and is well positioned to ensure full mobility, low latency, high TCP throughput and fast handover support. It also allows intra-RAN multi-vendor interoperability capability.
