South Korea's electronic giant Samsung Electronics Co.said on Friday that it has successfully verified its network slicing technology in a 5G standalone commercial network environment jointly with Japanese mobile telecom operator KDDI.5G network slicing refers to a network architecture that divides a physical mobile communications network into multiple independent virtual networks to provide customized communications services for different purposes, such as ultra-low latency and ultra-high speed.
Once the technology is commercialized, it will be possible to simultaneously provide multiple services that require different technical features in a single network, contributing to the further spread of 5G services," said a Samsung Electronics official.
Samsung tested smartphones currently sold in Japan with 5G standalone base stations and core equipment supplied by itself on a 5G commercial network in downtown Tokyo for three months from September last year".
