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. Ericsson Radio System has been developed to provide a smooth and cost-effective evolution from 4G to 5G and minimize the time to market for when service providers want to turn on 5G.
Now we are adding new hardware and software products to the portfolio that further enhance the agility and speed with which communication service providers can roll out their 5G networks. These include Ericsson Spectrum Sharing, the RAN Compute portfolio and an integrated 5G millimeter wave Street Macro transport solution.
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.
5G Street Macro: Faster rollout with integrated transport
5G Street Macro is a simplified, complete and compact architecture for 5G-powered cities. By expanding our Street Macro solution to include integrated, optical fronthaul capabilities and backhaul capabilities with microwave, you can implement a complete Street Macro solution for millimeter wave 5G deployment at speed. Boost capacity and increase your network’s connectivity through compact and cost-efficient sites.
