Samsung inks agreement with America Movil to develop IoT, 4.5G

The new agreement will cover initiatives in Mexico as well as other Latin American markets

Korean company Samsung Electronics and Latin American mobile telephony giant America Movil have signed a letter of intent to develop a series of projects across Latin America including initiatives in the internet of things (IoT) space.

Under the agreement, both companies will develop IoT technologies in Mexico and other key markets across the region.

The implementation of the 4.5G network within Mexico and other Latin-American countries is the main objective of this agreement. However, both companies highlighted that the joint initiative also looks to develop and commercialize smart products and solutions in the IoT field.

The partnership between the two companies consists of supporting the testing of 4.5G technologies using the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy S7 edge devices in countries such as Mexico and Puerto Rico. The aim of these tests and examinations will be to realize the co-development of technologies such as VoLTE, VoWiFi, 4×4 MIMO, 256-QAM, and IoT.

“Given that America Movil provides integrated telecommunication services across 17 countries within the Latin-American region, the company represents an important strategic player for the permeation of the latest mobile networks within the region. We are confident that, with the support of the technology pertaining to Samsung devices, we will soon be able to place new connectivity options within the grasp of consumers,” said Pedro Kim, president and CEO of Samsung Electronics Latin America.

“Through this collaboration with Samsung, we will be able to offer our customers innovative solutions that address a variety of needs and allow them to benefit from the internet of things and new technological tools to boost productivity, become more efficient and make their lives easier. said Angel Alija, America Movil’s wireless COO.

Headquartered in Mexico, America Movil offers mobile telephony and broadband services in several markets across South America and Central America.
