Samsung Aims to Be Among Top 3 Wireless Network Gear Makers

Samsung Electronics Co., the world’s second-largest mobile-phone maker, aims to become one of the three biggest producers of network gear in four years by tapping demand for new equipment that can handle data faster.

“In terms of revenue and the number of contracts, we’re trying to break into the top three,” I.P. Hong, head of the marketing group at Samsung’s Telecom Systems Business, said in an interview in Seoul. “We’re positively forecasting we’ll be able to achieve that around 2015.”
