World's First 5G NR Commercial Deployment Powered by Xilinx and Samsung

An expanded collaboration between Xilinx and Samsung Electronics has resulted in the deployment of the first 5G New Radio (NR) solution. This first deployment took place in South Korea and will be followed by additional countries globally in 2019 and beyond.

Xilinx and Samsung have been working together to develop and deploy multiple 5G Massive Multiple-input, Multiple-output (Massive-MIMO) and millimeter wave (mmWave) solutions using the Xilinx UltraScale+ platform. Additionally, Samsung is collaborating with Xilinx on its forthcoming Versal adaptable compute acceleration platform (ACAP) products to deliver state-of-the-art 5G solutions. The goal is to address a multi-fold increase in compute density requirements in next-generation 5G Massive-MIMO systems while enabling the use of machine learning algorithms to maximize the benefits of beamforming gains to further boost capacity and performance.

Xilinx is showcasing updates to its UltraScale+ platform portfolio along with other adaptable, intelligent 5G infrastructure demonstrations at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on February 25-28, 2019 in Hall 6, Stand 6M30. For more information on Xilinx's presence at the show, click here.
