Join our 4G evolution: LTE solutions for next-generation networks

LTE is evolving. New capabilities are thriving, such as our Gigabit LTE, which offers gigabit-per-second download speeds. The result is a secure, superior user experience for next-generation mobile broadband.

Our network technology also allows operators to smoothly transition from 4G to 5G and minimize the time to market when they want to flip the switch. Ericsson Radio System Basebands and Radios are already all set for 5G NR – no ‘rip and replace’ required.

To enable an efficient migration for operators from their existing 2G/3G networks to LTE, Ericsson offers advanced mixed mode (2G/3G/LTE) solutions. Our approach is unique for the industry. It maximizes spectrum efficiency for LTE in GSM/WCDMA frequency bands, with best performance and minimal complexity.

With features that simplify and reduce the cost of building and managing next-generation networks, our LTE solutions deliver the goods. It means more capacity and better reliability for increasingly demanding applications. So, whether it’s interactive TV, mobile video blogging or advanced gaming, you can evolve with us. Join our 4G evolution now.

The need for speed

The need to evolve to Gigabit LTE, and beyond, is being driven by the growth in mobile broadband subscriber numbers and traffic volumes, the availability of more capable mobile devices, and rising user expectations.
