MTS selects Ericsson to prepare network for 5G and IoT
We’re excited to announce that the largest telecommunications operator in Russia, MTS, has selected Ericsson to upgrade their network to support the communications technologies of the future.
“In April 2017, our companies demonstrated 5G technology with peak data rates up to 25 Gbit/sec. Now we have reached an agreement with Ericsson, which will supply MTS with new equipment enabling our network to deploy first solutions based on 5G technologies starting in 2020. After this upgrade, the MTS network will provide higher data rates, increased capacity, and lower latency. These characteristics are critical for IoT and the digital services that we are starting to implement today."
- Andrey Ushatsky, MTS Vice President, Chief Technology, and IT Officer
This announcement represents a milestone in the large-scale commercialization of IoT and 5G technologies in Russia and positions Russia as an early adopter of the most advanced ICT solutions. Read more about this landmark partnership here

Ericsson and Magyar Telekom demonstrate first 5G link in Hungary
At the annual celebration of Innovation Day at Ericsson’s Research and Development center in Budapest, Ericsson engineers demonstrated the latest cellular radio build on the pre-standard 5G New Radio 3GPP recommendations. Operating on a 15GHz frequency band with 800MHz bandwidth, the integrated radio technology enabled downlink speeds that are upwards of 20 times faster than what is possible with today’s technologies!
Ericsson and Magyar Telekom, along with Hungarian government bodies, universities, network equipment vendors and independent corporations, are all part of the 5G Coalition in Hungary that is paving the way for mass adoption of 5G technology.
“This demonstration is a real milestone for our partnership with Magyar Telekom. This is the first time a 5G radio link has been established in Hungary, and this implementation is helping to ensure that Magyar Telekom is well prepared to take full advantage of the potential of 5G.”

Important notice: fraudulent job offers
It has come to our attention that emails and job adverts have been created and circulated by unknown individuals for the purpose of attempting to defraud candidates.
Potential candidates should be wary of approaches that appear to be offering a job for which they have not applied, especially if personal details or money must be sent in order to proceed with the recruitment. Neither Ericsson nor any commissioned third parties recruit in this manner. Such approaches are almost certainly fraudulent attempts to gain details of identity for illegal use.
Ericsson is taking all necessary steps to investigate this matter further.
