Electronics introduced its Compact Core solution which will help enable
the swift deployment and efficient operation of private 4G and 5G

Compact Core will help accelerate business transformation to Industry
4.0 by serving as the backbone of a flexible, reliable private network
for enterprises of all kinds. The Samsung Compact Core will be available
globally later this year.
Common Core Functionality: It includes both 4G and 5G core NFs, which means it can operate as 4G Evolved Packet Core (EPC), 5G Non-Standalone (NSA) or 5G Standalone (SA) core, while enabling a seamless migration without hardware replacements. The Compact Core can run as both 4G and 5G cores simultaneously.
Simplified Deployment and Operation: The Compact Core is suitable for enterprises seeking quick deployments and less complex operations.

It brings simplicity, requiring less technical knowledge or intervention from those who run the private network.

and Head of Core R&D, Networks Business at Samsung Electronics. “Whether
