As part of its vision of a converged and ubiquitous IP-based mobile network, Samsung has unveiled a new series of network products that address convergence in wired and wireless applications.

"Today's network is experiencing unprecedented changes," says Youngsoo Ryu, general manager and senior vice president at Samsung. "While data and voice convergence is in full swing, wired and wireless convergence is beginning to gather momentum. We see incredible opportunities to address the new growing market, where a single converged network providing voice, data, and video over any access medium is increasingly becoming wireless. In fact, taking historical technology advancements as evidence, all access to the network will be done wirelessly in the near future, and we certainly intend to be a driving force as this market develops."

Samsung said it plans to deliver convergence first to the enterprise market. Specifically, the company intends to introduce products in these key areas: networking infrastructure, voice communications, mobility and security. The foundation of these is Internet Protocol, thus protection from malicious IP-based attacks is a major consideration. Samsung said it has made security a top priority and this will play an integral part in the company's enterprise solutions.

For network infrastructure, the company's initial products are the Ubigate iBG Series convergence platforms. This series delivers features such as routing, switching, security and voice integration into a single platform for easy management, reduction in total ownership cost and rapid return on investment. It offers customers carrier-class routing, including MPLS, large switching port-density, unified threat management, and VoIP features. The product series supports both analog and digital voice interfaces as well as IP telephony for a total voice communication package.

The Ubigate iBG Series product line comes in four different models. The iBG3026, designed for medium to large sites, is available for orders now in Korea and China, and will be rolled out throughout the world by the end of 2006. The iBG2016 and the iBG2006, targeted for smaller offices, will be available worldwide later this year. The larger iBG3046, targeted for enterprise headquarters, will be available in Q2 2007.
