The strategic partnership will focus on solutions that can be deployed horizontally across a range of sectors as well as those for specific markets including health, public and finance.

The new deal was signed at Samsung's headquarters in South Korea by Belgacom chief executive Didier Bellens and Samsung's executive vice president for global sales and marketing, DJ Lee.
