Samsung | July 09, 2021
Today, Samsung Electronics said it would collaborate with TPG Telecom to undertake Australia's first 5G virtualized RAN (vRAN) trial on 26GHz, utilizing an integrated mmWave solution for mobile and fixed wireless services. Samsung will put its vRAN solution at TPG Telecom's brand new Innovation Lab in Glebe, NSW, for the trial, the first type in the country. Furthermore, Samsung's newest 5G mmWave product, Compact Macro, will be implemented in the Glebe region.
The announcement follows the April 2021 launch of Samsung's Networks Business in Australia. The firm has been exploring the delivery of Samsung's leading 5G mmWave technology to the country since then.
TPG Telecom, a major mobile network provider in Australia, owns and runs a number of well-known mobile and internet brands in the country, including Vodafone. TPG Telecom has announced a AU$108 million commitment to buy spectrum in all accessible license areas in the 26GHz band, doubling its overall spectrum holdings. TPG Telecom will provide high-speed data services and immersive use cases to its mobile and home customers because of an abundance of mmWave spectrum. In addition, TPG Telecom's extensive fiber assets, coupled with a small cell network, will allow for the deployment of vRAN architecture.
Samsung will offer its Compact Macro and vRAN solutions for the trial. Samsung's newest 5G Compact Macro combines a baseband, radio, and antenna in a compact package. This compact and lightweight technology is easily placed on the sides of buildings and utility poles, allowing for the quick response of 5G networks. Samsung's industry-leading commercial vRAN solution is based on the company's own stack and operates on commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) servers. As a vRAN leader, Samsung has commercially deployed its vRAN solution on a large scale for global Tier 1 operator networks in markets other than Australia and has recently expanded its capability to support the 3.5GHz Massive MIMO radio industry voices had predicted would be difficult to support with vRAN. Furthermore, Samsung's 5G vRAN on mmWave, which is currently commercially deployed in global markets such as Korea, Japan, and the United States, can handle multi-gigabit speeds, enabling IT technology savings and deployment benefits providing revolutionary 5G mobile experiences.
Samsung has paved the way for successfully delivering 5G end-to-end solutions, including chipsets, radios, and core. With its market-leading product portfolio spanning from completely virtualized RAN and Core to private network solutions and AI-powered automation tools, Samsung leads the industry's advancement of 5G networks through ongoing research and development. Currently, the company provides network solutions to mobile operators that connect hundreds of millions of users worldwide.

Dali Wireless, Inc. | August 31, 2021
Dali Wireless, Inc., a worldwide pioneer in digital radio distribution systems and digital predistortion technology received a decision on August 24, 2021, from the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC). The CAFC affirmed most of the rulings made by Judge Barbara M.G. Lynn in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas in May 2020 (Case No. 3:16-cv-00477-M), including CommScope’s infringement of and the validity of U.S. Patent No. 9,531,473 (‘473).
Albert Lee, CEO of Dali Wireless stated, “We are thrilled to see that our ‘473 virtualized RAN patent has been affirmed. Dali is a pioneer in next generation wireless technologies, and our patent portfolio builds the foundation of virtualized wireless networks, especially in 5G. With this decision, we can now focus on innovating more disruptive technologies for the future.”
In May 2019 Dali Wireless filed a second patent infringement lawsuit against CommScope in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware, alleging infringement of U.S. Patent Number 8,682,338 (Case No. 1:19-cv-00952-MN). In this case, Dali is seeking damages and an injunction to stop the manufacture, sale, and distribution of CommScope’s OneCell® in-building system. This lawsuit is set for trial in March 2022.
Dali’s dedication to innovation has resulted in the company being granted over 500 global patents and pending patent applications. In addition to providing broad coverage on digital predistortion and radio frequency (“RF”) distribution technology, Dali’s patents are critically important to enabling 4G, 5G and virtual Radio Access Network (vRAN) technologies.
