Samsung Electronics Co. said yesterday that its U.S. subsidiary, Samsung Telecommunications America, has signed a three-year contract with Covad Communications Group, a U.S. high-speed Internet service provider, to supply its next-generation telecommunications network equipment. The equipment, called Multi-Service Access Gateway, converts analog voice signals from wire communication appliances into digital signals, which are then sent to Covad’s broadband network and publicly switched telephone networks of local phone companies. “Entering the U.S. market will hopefully be a stepping stone towards occupying a central position in the market for next-generation global telecommunications networks,” said an official of Samsung Electronics. “We are working to deliver line-powered voice access and next-generation broadband services that will offer cutting edge technology and an alternative choice to businesses and consumers across the country,” said Charles Hoffman, Covad president and chief executive officer. Covad provides high-speed Internet service to 235 cities in the United States, and it hopes to reach 900 with the implementation of Samsung Electronics’ equipment. Samsung Electronics has already exported such equipment to the Netherlands and Japan. by Park Sung-ha
