5G will give operators the possibility to improve their existing consumer business and to address previously untapped value chains in the digitalization of industries. The new technology opens up new opportunities in new ecosystems. Ericsson is working closely with telecom operators across the world and has a large number of Memorandums of Understandings. Together with our partners we are continuously testing, learning and pushing the boundaries of how 5G can meet the diverse needs now and of the future.
