With 5G commercialized networks expected in 2020, Ericsson is already demonstrating fundamental 5G functionality that will be critical to enabling widespread adoption for both consumer and machine-type communications (MTC), including 5G-LTE Dual Connectivity.

With 5G-LTE Dual Connectivity, the 5G mobile device moves between LTE and 5G radio access coverage areas, establishing simultaneous connections with both networks before seamlessly handing over. 5G-LTE Dual Connectivity will enable 5G networks to provide multi-standard and multi-band support in both devices and radio access.
