Building the most efficient and best performing network

Ericsson Antenna System

The antenna system is one of the most crucial areas in a radio access network and a fundamental pillar in the Ericsson 5G strategy. Today's complex antenna systems with multiple frequencies and multiple technologies on the same radio site, put great demands on the ability to create effective solutions. With the acquisition of Kathrein Mobile Communication in October 2019, we have now one of the strongest combined antenna system patent portfolios in the industry, an important step in the execution of our Networks portfolio strategy. Ericsson Antenna System is an integral part of Ericsson Radio System and provides a full range of high-quality products in the following areas: passive antennas, active antennas, filters and combiners, tower mounted amplifiers, feeder system and accessories.

High-quality antenna systems matter

The performance of the components in the antenna system ultimately determines the effectiveness of the radio site, while a poor antenna system can severely reduce the radio network performance. With the increasing demands brought by the introduction of 5G, service providers should consider issues like radio frequency performance, mechanical failure and material aging or evolution and performance issues like challenges when adding bands, increased number of radio frequency connectors or network performance.
