Building 5G networks
5G technology will encompass an evolution of today’s LTE technology (4G) with the addition of new radio access technologies, often in higher frequencies.
5G will impact the entire mobile network and associated eco-system, from devices to radio access, IP core and into the cloud. Ericsson’s Award Winning 5G Radio Test Bed and new 5G Radio Prototype innovations focus on the interactions between mobile devices (used by both people and things) and the radio access network, both indoors and outside. However the first step will be a transformation to a 5G ready core and transport, using technologies like NFV, SDN and network slicing, enabling speed, agility and efficiency when introducing new service for example Internet of Things, IoT.
As with past mobile generations, leading operators are keen to gain a first-mover advantage in 5G. Working with these operators, Ericsson is leading the development of new 5G technologies to ensure early success and enable rapid adoption of 5G-enabled applications.

5G technology insights
5G technology milestones and trials
Demo: 28 GHz system
5G over-the-air interoperability on 28GHz system with Intel device, and running 4x4K video streaming application on top. Beamforming has been implemented in both direction between 5G radio and device.
E-2-e 5G system
It demonstrates the first milestone of our 5G end-to-end system based on a 5G-enabled Core for early NR introduction. This field trial ready system is showcased by end-to-end system characteristics including more than 5Gb/s per user, visualized by multiple 4k video streams, and e2e network latency at 3ms.
Demo: 5G remote driven car
5G remote driven car show Showing the impact of low latency and high data capacity. Three 4K video streams plus numerous sensors transmitted from the car to the driving seat.
