Ericsson 5G: delivering innovation at commercial speed to modernize defense Missions
The US Government’s digital modernization strategy requires powerful, open, reliable and secure communications networks that will provide the foundation for adoption of AI, Cloud, XR and other technologies. 5G and future Gs will be that foundation, and no other communications provider has the expertise, scale and proven solutions that will meet DoD mission requirements today, and partnership to ensure mission-critical communications for the future. 5G solutions from Ericsson give you the resilient, secure and proven network you need to command, control and communicate in mission-critical operations anytime, anywhere.
Ericsson has been leading the global development of Open RAN since 2018.

Equipped to support your mission
Ericsson’s 5G portfolio is extensive, robust and prepared to help the DoD accelerate modernization and communication innovation. That’s not a theoretical claim. Our technological prowess has been proven through multiple successful U.S Defense deployments. We’ve partnered with the U.S. DoD on use cases including smart warehousing, depots and ports, flightline operations and training, distributed command and control, planning and training with Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and Internet of Things (IoT), spectrum sharing and more.
Supporting our personnel at home and overseas
With infrastructure deployed in more than 180 countries including over 150 live 5G networks in almost 70 countries, Ericsson is uniquely positioned to support and enable DoD’s “Operate Through” mission whenever personnel are deployed OCONUS. Our capability to operator robust and secure communications networks in challenging conditions has been tested and proven during real-world emergencies through the UN Rescue program.
Ericsson is a strong partner to U.S. Allies with multiple networks in all Five Eyes (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, U.K. and U.S.), support for NATO and the European Defense Fund initiatives (EDF).
To secure the nation, secure your networks
Network security is national security. Ericsson has been a leader in securing 5G networks from day one, helping to develop international 3GPP security standardization.
