Gigabit LTE

Gigabit LTE is a major milestone on the road to 5G. By offering 1 Gbps peak rates and beyond, operators can meet the demand for capacity and speed as consumers quickly adopt new apps, consume and share content at a high pace, wherever they are.

More flexible with Ericsson

Ericsson offers the markets best Gigabit LTE flexibility as it can aggregate up to 7 carriers, combine FDD and TDD or combine FDD and unlicensed (LAA). All combinations are supported from one Baseband board, reducing the footprint and the power consumption to a minimum. Ericsson offers both outdoor and indoor Gigabit LTE, enabling operators to prepare Gigabit LTE for small cells as well as for macro sites.

Discover your strategy to provide Gigabit class connectivity indoor with our Indoor Small Cells portfolio.

5G ready

As Ericsson Radio System radios and basebands are 5G ready, sites with Gigabit LTE abilities can be smoothly enhanced with 5G with a remote software upgrade.


One board only

Uniquely aggregates FDD and TDD carriers from just one RAN Compute board

Add unlicensed

Gigabit LTE speeds possible from just one FDD carrier when combining with three unlicensed carriers applying LAA

Ready for the future

Runs on a future-proof 5G ready RAN Compute

AI-powered radio access networks

How do you improve your network performance and user experience in today’s densified networks? Artificial intelligence is one of the keys in conquering these challenges, for LTE as well as 5G.
