With our unique experience of leadership in each generation of mobile networks, we are the only vendor currently acting on all continents to make 5G a global standard for the next generation of wireless technology.
We have a long tradition of collaboration and research, targeting long-term development of communication technologies. And 5G is no different: our concepts and technologies have been under evaluation for several years now. Ericsson 5G Radio Prototypes are the first products designed to enable operators to conduct live field trials in their own networks.
With Ericsson 5G Radio Prototypes, operators move beyond the 5G hype of lab-based speed tests and gain a greater understanding of the potential for 5G in their own network environments and markets.
It’s all about creating networks that are capable of being an agile platform for new applications, new players and new services.Sara Mazur, Vice President and Head of Ericsson Research
