Ericsson Radio System for 5G
Operators are seeking solutions to both support traffic growth as well as emerging use cases and business opportunities. To assist operators with these challenges and opportunities, Ericsson 5G radio access technologies are being created to provide the infrastructure needed to support the world’s growing demand for high-bandwidth connections and support the real-time, high-reliability communication requirements of mission-critical applications.
The specification of 5G will also include the development of a new flexible air interface, NR, which will be directed to extreme mobile broadband deployments. NR will also target high-bandwidth and high-traffic-usage scenarios, as well as new scenarios that involve mission-critical and real-time communications with extreme requirements in terms of latency and reliability
Ericsson is extending the Ericsson Radio System to deliver new radio access products and functionality to smooth the operator’s transformation journey to 5G. Ericsson Radio System extensions deliver a high performance, end-to-end 5G access system which includes the industry’s first global portfolio of 5G NR radios.
Ericsson is also first to market with solutions that enable 4G LTE networks to evolve smoothly on the journey to 5G, such as Ericsson’s new 5G platform for combined core and radio use cases . The platform comprises the 5G core, radio and transport portfolios, together with digital support systems, transformation services and security.
