Be the first to deliver 5G access

Commercial 5G networks are expected to go live in 2019. First movers can reshape the market and increase market share and revenue streams. Combining improved capacity with increased cost-efficiency 5G represents an opportunity for telecom operators to improve their consumer business. 5G also allows operators to explore new use cases and business models and capture new revenue streams through addressing industry digitalization. Our portfolio is ready to support operators that want to be first to deploy 5G.

Our two latest launches

New deployment solutions for 5G

Our latest NR solutions will future-proof network architecture and secure 5G performance and coverage fast.

5G RAN Virtualization

With the expected data rate upsurge, service providers need to increase capacity and revenue, while lowering costs. By virtualizing the upper layer of 5G radio-access network (RAN) software, we offer a virtual RAN (vRAN) solution to give you additional network architecture flexibility to address these challenges.
