Switch on 5G with increased agility

Enhanced Ericsson Radio System enabling a faster and agile 5G rollout

Enabling fast and agile 5G rollout

5G brings the opportunity for communication service providers to reshape the marketplace, expand the customer experience and improve revenue streams.


That’s why we’re adding new hardware and software products to the Ericsson Radio System portfolio that will further enhance the agility and speed of 5G network rollouts. These include Ericsson Spectrum Sharing, the RAN Compute portfolio and an integrated 5G millimeter wave Street Macro transport solution.

Together they’ll provide a smooth and cost-effective evolution from 4G to 5G and minimize the time to market for when you want to switch to 5G.

Explore in just two minutes, how our Ericsson Radio System is made to provide a smooth and cost-effective evolution from 4G to 5G.

Ericsson Spectrum Sharing: Let your spectrum drive your 5G rollout

Managing spectrum is a challenge that’s increasing as 5G is introduced. Ericsson Spectrum Sharing uses our unique scheduler algorithms that plan and introduce 5G smoothly as traffic demand shifts from 4G to 5G, allowing you to fully leverage spectrum assets and Ericsson Radio System hardware. By intelligently and quickly introducing 5G within an existing 4G carrier, you can turn on nationwide 5G whenever it best suits you and your customers.

RAN Compute Portfolio: Architecture for greater flexibility

It’s time to redefine baseband processing. Ericsson’s new RAN Compute portfolio is our most agile RAN processing solution yet, allowing you to deploy RAN functions centrally, at the radio site or coupled with the radio. New and emerging 4G and 5G use cases, including critical control of manufacturing equipment and enhanced health care, will benefit from a greater level of flexibility in RAN processing by allowing you to fine tune use case performance. The end result is high capacity, agile architecture with tailored solutions to suit a flexible RAN deployment throughout the network.
