Building 5G Networks

In 2024, the amount of mobile data traffic will have increased compared to today by a factor of 5, and 25 percent of all mobile data traffic will be carried by 5G networks. Communication service providers now face three main challenges. The first is how to build the capacity required, in a dynamic and flexible way. The second is how to best address operational inefficiencies, by leveraging automation and AI. And the third is how to increase the revenue growth, by means of service differentiation and ability to leverage partner ecosystems. With Ericsson they will be ready to tackle these challenges.

Leading the evolution to 5G

Ericsson has played a pivotal role in the advancements of the 5G technology. Together with our partners we have led an ecosystem of expertise from early trials, into making 5G networks a commercial reality. As a result, our 5G leadership is today visible across several critical dimensions:

  • We are driving the most important 5G standardization work, rapidly applying new standards in our portfolio.
  • We have achieved a successful and complete set of interoperability testing, across all main spectrum bands.
  • We provide a smooth evolution path, with the Ericsson 5G platform and 3 million shipped 5G ready radios.
  • We are rolling out 5G networks across all markets, holding the leading number of named commercial customers.

Our unique capabilities make it easy to build your 5G network

Dive into 5G

The 5G business case for enhanced mobile broadband

Enhanced mobile broadband will be the first commercial application of 5G and can help operators improve their consumer business. Our study reveals that the evolution to 5G can enable a 10 times lower cost per gigabyte than current 4G networks.

5G Partnerships

From industry to academia, our partnerships are continuously testing, learning and pushing the boundaries of 5G.

5G trial case stories

We carry out joint 5G trials and proof of concepts with telecom operators globally. Here´s how we're building the networks of the future.

5G security - enabling a trustworthy 5G system

Connected devices and mobile applications require wireless network access that is resilient, secure and able to protect individuals’ right to privacy. The 5G system is designed with these requirements in mind. Read our whitepaper.

The advantages of combining 5G NR with LTE

5G at mid and high bands is well suited for deployment at existing site grids, especially when combined with low-band LTE. Adding new frequency bands to existing deployments is a future-proof and cost-efficient way to improve performance, meet the growing needs of mobile broadband subscribers and deliver new 5G-based services.
