Connectivity for the modern urbanite

Increasing capacity and coverage where it matters the most

How people connect in urban areas will become increasingly important as we densify networks for 5G. Easy to install, low-cost and high performing solutions will be at the forefront of this densification, including small cells and Ericsson's Street portfolio.

With over 68% of the world's population living in urban zones by 2050 (source: United Nations), it is imperative to ensure robust connectivity in major metropolitan areas.
