Ericsson is launching an innovative toolkit with advanced RAN and Core capabilities that will enable communications service providers to capture business opportunities for new service offerings with differentiated connectivity for premium 5G experiences, delivered at scale and on the move.
Capture 5G business opportunities
What´s new: key capabilities in the software toolkit
incremental user throughput gain in high load
Up to 90ms latency improvement in high load
Target rate delivery met on 1ms basis
The new software toolkit is designed for communications service providers (CSPs) to deliver at committed performance levels for use cases with high requirements on reliability and latency – such as lag-free mobile cloud gaming, real-time media for video conferencing/live broadcasting, remote-controlled machines/vehicles and future XR applications.
It offers the following key capabilities:
Turn performance into loyalty, value, and growth!
The better performance of 5G could be used to create a wider range of differentiated connectivity offerings, each meeting a specific customer need. By differentiation and personalization, CSPs can both create and capture the additional value of 5G connectivity.

Customers already using slicing
The basic functionalities of Network Slicing and Time-Critical Communication were initially launched by Ericsson in 2021. Since then, a number of trials and tests with leading communications service providers have been conducted to discover new use cases. CSPs are moving from the exploration stage and progressing toward scaling and commercialization as the technology matures and 5G standalone takes off worldwide. Here are some case examples:
Far EasTone uses network slicing to give Kaohsiung City Police Department’s smart patrol cars a flawless connection, thus helping them make the city safer.
