Ericsson in Germany

Ericsson has been active in Germany for more than 60 years and employs 1,800 staff at 10 locations. The headquarters is located in Dusseldorf. All major telecom companies in Germany are among Ericsson’s customers. These include, for example, Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone, Telefónica and Versatel. The Chairman of the Management Board of Ericsson GmbH is Stefan Koetz.

With advanced technology and its continuous further development, Ericsson makes an essential contribution as a partner of the German Government in implementing the Digital Agenda for Germany and the Broadband Strategy. One area thereby is specifically important to the company, namely the development and roll-out of the new network standard 5G. With more than 20 announced 5G deals and around 50 memoranda of understanding, Ericsson is one of the pioneers of the 5G roll-out. Twelve of these 5G networks are already live and available to customers, for example in Switzerland, Australia and the US.
