What’s new?

Ultralight remote radios

Triple-band: Radio 4485 for FDD, delivering 50 percent reduced embodied carbon* footprint and more than 20 percent energy savings vs. comparable radios.

Dual-band: Radio 4890 for FDD has 4 transmit and 8 receive branches, enhancing the uplink without need to shift antennas. 

Single-band: Radio 4471 with 4 transmit and receive branches in a 10 kg costume enables easy rollouts of additional frequency bands.

*Embodied carbon consists of all greenhouse gas emissions that have occurred before the product is used. It includes emissions from the extraction of raw materials, transportation to suppliers’ production, Ericsson manufacturing, and product transportation up to the customer.

“Swisscom is a world-leading operator in Switzerland, not only from a network performance perspective but also in terms of being the world’s most sustainable telecom operator. We have relentless focus on providing our customers with the best mobile services while at the same time curbing the overall energy consumption. Ericsson’s latest technology breakthroughs such as the energy-saving triple-band Radio 4485 shows that Swisscom can continue to deliver on our customer promises using products that are smaller, lighter, and even more energy efficient. We look forward to seeing this radio in the field.”

- Mark Düsener, Executive Vice President, Mobile Network & Services, Swisscom

RAN software for energy savings and enhanced performance

Booster Carrier Sleep

Booster Carrier Sleep

Ericsson Booster Carrier Sleep allows carriers to be switched on and off dynamically based on the traffic demand. This software creates more opportunities for cell sleep and radio deep sleep to be activated autonomously, being a key enabler for energy efficiency.

Ericsson Interference Sensing

Interference Sensing

Ericsson's award-winning unique Interference Sensing is portfolio-wide Massive MIMO software, that minimizes inter-cell interference and increases network capacity by up to 40 percent.

Powered by Ericsson Silicon, it is a perfect complement to the Ericsson Uplink Booster. This capacity-boosting Interference Sensing software helped Ericsson win top GTI Award 2023 for “Innovative Breakthrough in Mobile Technology” as well as the "Outstanding Award" for significant contribution to the industry. 

Intelligent Cell Shaping

This portfolio-wide Massive MIMO Intelligent Cell Shaping software improves coverage with intelligent automation, gives more precise cell shapes matching the user distribution, reduces inter-cell interference and improves capacity and load balancing with up to 35 percent higher cell edge user throughput.

Ericsson Silicon: Tailor-made for every purpose

The new products are powered by next-generation Ericsson Silicon with its footprint-reducing, less power-consuming multi-band, and wideband capabilities for remote and Massive MIMO radios.

New capabilities include:

  • Native Cloud RAN support and robust multi-band performance for remote radios
  • Next generation digital front-end for Massive MIMO radios
  • Enabling bandwidth beyond 400 MHz for Massive MIMO radios

Our macro offerings

Remote radios

Modernize sites with the latest multi-band, multi-sector radios for capacity expansion and energy efficiency.

Massive MIMO

Massive MIMO technology offers communication service providers the larger bandwidth of the mid-band to deliver powerful 5G experiences nationwide.

Ericsson Antenna System

The antenna system is one of the most important areas in a radio access network and a fundamental pillar in the Ericsson 5G strategy. Today's complex antenna systems with multiple frequencies and multiple technologies on the same radio site put great demands on the ability to create effective solutions.

Ericsson Radio System

Ericsson Radio System enables smooth, fast and cost-effective migration from 4G to 5G, allowing operators to launch the new technology and grow 5G coverage fast, no matter the scale and complexity. It comprises hardware, software and services for radio, RAN Compute, transport, power, enclosure, antenna and site solutions– all run by a common management system.

5G sites

End-to-end solutions for the construction of 5G radio sites that are both future-proof and cost-effective for mobile networks that will operate profitably. We help service providers maintain cutting-edge infrastructure that meets today’s needs and future growth.

Ericsson Uplink Booster

5G is no longer just about being first to market; instead, high performance and good coverage dominates mobile operator requirements. By exceeding service providers' needs, Ericsson’s Uplink Booster efficiently extends 5G mid-band coverage by a considerable margin.

Carrier aggregation in 5G

Carrier aggregation is the foundation for a better 5G, an effective tool to extend the coverage of mid and high-band that leads also to an increased capacity. Carrier aggregation is powered by the innovative Advanced RAN Coordination to allow full deployment flexibility and uncompromised user throughput.

Ericsson Silicon

The Ericsson Silicon range of System on a Chip (SoC), is custom-made for mobile networks and spans across the Ericsson Radio System - RAN Compute, radio and transport.
