About  NAVER:

NAVER Cloud operates the global IT infrastructure and enterprise solution services for NAVER and its subsidiaries while providing its public cloud services, NAVER Cloud Platform, to a myriad of companies and organizations in diverse industries.

Samsung Electronics and NAVER Cloud signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) in March 2022 for a private 5G network collaboration. The companies will continue working together to develop new business models and use cases to expand private 5G networks globally, helping support the buildout of secure and dedicated networks for enterprises using Samsung’s private 5G network solutions and NAVER’s cloud technology.

The headquarters, called “1784”, will start by employing 40 robots, moving across three floors. The plans are to expand to “hundreds of robots traveling around the entire 36-floor building” by the end of the year. All robots are linked to a cloud server, which acts as a shared brain, offloading much of the needed calculations from the individual robots.

Samsung’s 5G network will be the neural network that connects the robots to their cloud, enabling “support for tens of thousands of robots in real time”, as per Samsung’s press release. They are also building a common 3D/HD mapping and AI is helping them learn and navigate around the building quicker by creating a virtual space that replicates the real world.

The Private 5G Network Solutions:

Private 5G solutions are necessary to support enterprises like NAVER that require secure and reliable communications for data-intensive mobile applications. The commercial private 5G solutions powering NAVER’s application includes Samsung’s Compact Core and 5G radios supporting 4.7GHz and 28GHz spectrums, which are dedicated for private 5G network in Korea. The private 5G radios from Samsung include an optimized uplink allocation feature, with an allocation ratio of up to 40 percent. This latest feature, which nearly doubles the upload capabilities of today’s commercial 5G radios, is designed to help enterprises upload vast amounts of data across many people and machines simultaneously, which is required in many private networks.

“Our collaboration with NAVER highlights how we creatively drive business innovation by future technology convergence. We are thrilled to work with NAVER to successfully realize our vision with private 5G network solutions,” said Yong Chang, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing, Networks Business at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung will continue to work with public institutions and enterprises to deliver diverse use cases for transportation systems, hospitals, schools, SOC facilities and more.”
