This IDC Market Note evaluates Samsung Networks' acquisition of TeleWorld Solutions as it pertains to the company's desire to add value to its mobile and enterprise-focused networking businesses.
"With United States–based competitive dynamics weaker than in prior mobile rollout eras, Samsung Networks will have prolonged opportunity over the next several years to continue to play a larger role in United States–based mobile operator accounts. Adding ever more services capabilities should only serve to bolster Samsung's standing among those accounts, particularly operators looking to navigate and invest to enable the broader set of 5G use cases, including those spanning private cellular networks for enterprise environments," says Patrick Filkins, senior research analyst, IDC's IoT and Mobile Network Infrastructure.
