Building 5G Networks
5G technology will encompass an evolution of today’s LTE technology (4G) with the addition of new radio access technologies, often in higher frequencies.
5G will impact the entire mobile network and associated eco-system, from devices to radio access, IP core and into the cloud. Ericsson’s Award Winning 5G Radio Test Bed and new 5G Radio Prototype innovations focus on the interactions between mobile devices (used by both people and things) and the radio access network, both indoors and outside. However the first step will be a transformation to a 5G ready core and transport, using technologies like NFV, SDN and network slicing, enabling speed, agility and efficiency when introducing new service for example Internet of Things, IoT.
As with past mobile generations, leading operators are keen to gain a first-mover advantage in 5G. Working with these operators, Ericsson is leading the development of new 5G technologies to ensure early success and enable rapid adoption of 5G-enabled applications.

Demo: MU-MIMO, Massive MIMO and Beam Tracking
Dr. Dag Lindbo, 5G Research Software Lead at Ericsson, presents a live demonstration of Ericsson 5G Radio Prototypes achieving peak throughput of more than 25 Gbps using MU-MIMO, beam tracking and Massive MIMO.
Live Demo at MWC 2016: Ericsson 5G Radio Prototypes
Live demonstration of Ericsson 5G Radio Prototypes using MU-MIMO to support both fixed and mobile devices, maintaining reliable, multi-Gbps connections using beam tracking. The Radio Prototypes demonstrated are also supporting Massive MIMO, combining MIMO and beamforming with a large number of antenna elements to improve both the throughput and energy efficiency of the network.
5G radio prototypes for live field trials
Per Beming, Chief Architect, Business Unit Radio at Ericsson introduces the Ericsson 5G Radio Prototype. The compact design and “carry-on” size of the new 5G prototypes enable operators to field trial advanced 5G features, including Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) and beamforming across multiple sites in their own network environment.
