Samsung Electronics and leading Polish mobile operator Play have announced a new partnership that will see the Korean tech giant conduct 4G and 5G network trials in Warsaw beginning Q2 2021. The two companies plan on testing Samsung’s 4G and 5G network solutions and interoperability with Play’s 2G and 3G legacy networks.

Play is the leading mobile operator in Poland with a whopping 15 million subscribers, and it provides messaging, voice, video, and data services for enterprise and non-enterprise customers alike. According to Play, the partnership with Samsung is another initiative that allows us to choose the best solutions for the rollout of our network.

Throughout the trial period, Samsung and Play will be testing 4G and 5G solutions including Samsung’s 4G radios, Core, 5G Massive MIMO radios, and Samsung’s 5G baseband unit that supports both 4G and 5G frequencies.

Samsung R&D Institute Poland will also participate in the 4G-5G trial run, though it’s unclear to what capacity. The Institute is one of Poland’s largest research and development hubs, and it’s also where Samsung Electronics’ highest-quality software is created, as per the company’s official description. Samsung R&D Institute Poland is also responsible for advancing 4G and 5G solutions, Network Function Virtualization cloud solutions, as well as analytics solutions for SON (Self-Organizing Networks).
