Next generation high-performing, sustainable antennas

Built on the new honeycomb structure

Gateway to high-performing, energy efficient networks

We all know that operators have a difficult challenge: how can they achieve best network performance and efficiency while at the same time help reducing operational site cost? Antennas are a key part to this puzzle, and Ericsson Antenna System creates precise engineered antennas that serve as a gateway to higher performing, more energy efficient networks.

New honeycomb structure launch video | 0:41 min

Last year we set new benchmarks in the industry, with live network benchmark tests in Europe, US and showing up to 57% higher uplink throughput performance and 29% reduction in power in overall network. With the next generation antennas, we are looking forward to helping our customers maximize their network investment in this way, with brand-new hardware and a world-first honeycomb antenna design system.

The honeycomb structure

Our cutting-edge passive antenna structure is set to redefine the standards of sustainability and cost efficiency in the telecommunications industry. Designed with precise engineering and a commitment to environmental responsibility, our antenna structure promises reduced environmental impact and significant cost savings throughout its lifecycle.
