Message Text: The third "Samsung 4G Forum 2005" is expected to mark the largest international event in wireless communication technology area.

According to Samsung Electronics, 'Samsung 4G Forum 2005' slated for August 29 and 30 in Jeju will be attended by more than 140 business leaders, specialists and representatives from international standardization organizations from some 20 countries.

Participants will include such prominent figures in world information technology and semiconductor fields as Chairman Michael Myer of Freescale Semiconductor, Yasda Yutaka, CTO of KDDI, and Chairman Roger Marks of IEEE 802.16E committee.

Reflecting keen interest in 4G communication technologies worldwide, the forum will be participated by a large number of representatives of communication carriers, equipment makers and standardization organizations in North America, Europe, Asia, Latin America, Australia and Africa.

The international event, in particular, is anticipated to be attended by executives at more than 30 leading communication carriers, including Vodafone, British Telecom, O2, Nextel and NTT Docomo.

"'Samsung 4G Forum' is now established as an important and sole international event in relation with 4G wireless communication technologies, backed by growing interest in international community," said a manager at Samsung Electronics.

The first forum held in 2003 was attended by 115 representatives and specialists from 14 countries. For the event held in 2004, a total of 124 representatives and specialists from 18 countries visited Korea, including 29 executives of communication carriers, 17 scholars, 6 representatives of standardization organizations and 13 executives of communication equipment makers.

Fourth-generation cellular phones, expected to come into practical use around 2010, will be able to transmit data as quickly as optical fiber, dramatically improving the streaming of high-quality images.

China and Japan cooperate on 4G

Latest news indicate that the Japanese and Chinese governments have also finalized plans to cooperate in developing technology for fourth-generation cellphones.

Japanese and Chinese government representatives will meet in Tokyo on Friday and are expected to sign an agreement to cooperate in research and development of 4G cellphones, which are expected to come into practical use around 2010.

A global standard for the spectrum available to 4G cellular technology will be established in 2007.

Japan has been at the forefront of third-generation (3G) telephones, which allow Internet service, online banking and other advanced features. Most of the world has been slower to catch on amid concern about the high price of 3G.
