Mobile transport solutions to connect 5G services, everywhere

Demand for 5G services is rising sharply across consumer and industry markets. To service this demand, service providers need purpose-built microwave and fiber mobile transport solutions – delivering ubiquitous, high-capacity 5G and 4G connectivity across cities, suburban areas and remote, rural spaces.

Based on a unique combination of microwave, IP router and integrated optical solutions, our mobile transport solutions deliver the capacity, ultra-low latency and layer 3 capability needed to build, scale and service 5G everywhere. The solution is complemented with best-in-class IP, edge, core and security solutions, along with highly flexible optical transport products from our partners. Automation and seamless orchestration enables service providers to secure their radio performance while reducing complexity. Ericsson Network Manager manages the end-to-end across the radio, transport and core networks – making Ericsson a one-stop shop for all your 4G and 5G needs. We’re ready for 5G. Are you?
