5G is here. 5G is maturing and 5G is delivering upon the promises it made. But, 5G has more potential to realize. Ericsson supports our Communication Service Providers with the most robust and high-performing 5G network solutions while planning for future network topologies and ideologies.
What is 5G RAN?
5G is about connecting things everywhere while enabling new use cases. A 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) relies on a fully coordinated, multi-layer network with low-band, mid-band and high-band to provide wireless connectivity to devices and deliver the best network performance.
New 5G use cases will deliver new revenue streams for communication service providers (CSPs) and new connectivity opportunities for subscribers. These use cases include:
- Cloud gaming
- Autonomous driving
- Fixed Wireless Access
In order to deliver these use cases, the Radio Access Network consists of antennas, radios, baseband (RAN Compute), and RAN software to enable incredible speeds and mobility.
Ericsson offers both a purpose-built portfolio and a Cloud RAN portfolio for 5G – offering CSPs flexibility when rolling out networks worldwide.
