Turn on 5G with Ericsson’s complete 5G Platform
Be first to market with 5G and grow 4G capacity in your network now
Data-heavy applications like virtual/augmented reality and 4K/8K video streaming are just around the corner. This increase in demand requires an increase in network strength. We're ready. Are you? Our 5G Platform addresses the needs of the first movers in 5G with solutions that enable today's networks to evolve smoothly to the next generation of networks.
We've released our first commercial 5G RAN software so you can turn on 5G in your commercial network already in Q4 2018. We announced that the installed base of Ericsson Radio System radios from 2015 onwards are capable of running 5G NR technology with a simple remote software installation. Add to this the new Ericsson distributed cloud approach to accelerate 5G and IoT growth and our strengthened Ericsson Radio System portfolio, and it's clear that we're ready to help you turn on 5G.
Be the first to deploy 5G
First to market means first to revenue. In fact, a majority of operators that launched LTE first in their market have succeeded in increasing their market share. Creating a 5G first-mover advantage will allow you to strengthen your brand as a technology leader with 5G, capture lucrative early 5G adopters, deliver enhanced Mobile Broadband services, and explore new use cases and business models.
Turn on 5G in your commercial network in Q4 2018 and attain that critical 5G first-mover position with the launch of our first commercial 5G RAN software. Based on the recently approved first 3GPP 5G NR standard and complementing our already available baseband and 5G Massive MIMO radios, our 5G RAN software provides multiband support for global deployment and allows you to use new frequency spectrum as it becomes available.
Boost your enhanced Mobile Broadband, start offloading traffic to 5G (that also enhances the 4G experience for your subscribers) with our 5G RAN software.
Grow 4G now with 5G-proof products
Mobile data traffic growth will continue relentlessly. Meet this demand and create long term value in your network by investing in 4G infrastructure that is ready to handle 5G, when you are.
With Ericsson, your 4G capacity investment is 5G-proof. The installed base of Ericsson Radio System radios from 2015 onwards are capable of running 5G NR technology with a simple remote software installation. This also applies to all of our delivered Ericsson Radio System micro radios as well as for our existing Radio Dot System portfolio.
