Growth in networks means growth in traffic. Nowadays, operators need to ensure they meet the rising demands facing transport networks - due to new bandwidth and latency requirements - while also balancing the introduction of a host of new services.

To ensure a smooth road to 5G, operators need flexible, seamless and well-integrated transport solutions. Our answer is the MINI-LINK, Router 6000 and Fronthaul 6000, purpose built for both mobile backhaul and fronthaul, and fully integrated into the Ericsson Radio System. Once installed, our products can be managed end-to-end by Ericsson Network Manager. 

5G is growing. The time to prepare is now. Are you ready?

The increasing complexity of today’s and future networks require flexible and well-integrated microwave nodes. Building an efficient microwave backhaul network with end-to-end performance in mind, requires high node capacity, compact and modular building practice, advanced packet functionality and features that are aligned and backward-compatible across different network nodes. The microwave nodes also need to be capable of handling single hops as well as advanced hub sites for larger networks.


Ericsson's routers provide a high capacity and cost effective solution for IP backhaul networks, utilizing IP/MPLS and SDN technologies. Integrated as part of Ericsson Radio System, Ericsson’s IP routers are purpose-built to meet the strict requirements of high performing radio access networks and provide enhanced radio transport features like accurate synchronization. Superior radio performance dictates superior transport and Ericsson’s routers are ready to meet the strict demands of 5G networks.


The Fronthaul 6000 product family provides cost-effective, scalable and flexible solutions to meet operator needs today and in the future.
