Future-proof and cost-effective solutions for your network infrastructure

5G sites

End-to-end solutions for the construction of 5G radio sites that are both future-proof and cost-effective for mobile networks that will operate profitably. We help service providers maintain cutting-edge infrastructure that meets today’s needs and future growth.

Ericsson’s future-proof approach to 5G site construction translates directly into considerable capex savings for the service provider. While their existing network investments can be reused, Ericsson’s commitment to telecom-grade reliability reduces opex at the same time. The most robust products are carefully selected to ensure years of effective operation. Furthermore, our products and solutions can be customized to overcome the most complex installation challenge.

5G sites in a nutshell

Bringing 5G site management to the intelligent era

Operating and managing radio sites efficiently requires a clear picture of their capabilities, capacity and performance at any given time. However, all too often, service providers are ‘running blind’ when it comes to site data. Knowing the current status of all site equipment helps service providers plan and manage their networks in a much more effective way.
