Ericsson 5G Plug-Ins

To facilitate a rapid evolution of 5G services, we are delivering our 5G Plug-Ins which are software-driven innovations that bring essential 5G technology concepts to today’s networks.

5G Plug-Ins include:

  • Massive MIMO and Multi-user MIMO: Combines MIMO with beamforming on advanced antennas to improve the user-experience, capacity, and coverage of the mobile network.
  • RAN Virtualization: Improves network efficiency and performance by enabling Virtual Network Functions (VNF) to be centralized on a common 4G / 5G platform.
  • Intelligent Connectivity: Increases the combined data throughput of 4G and 5G by enabling the network to intelligently route data based on application requirements.
  • Latency Reduction: Reduces time to content while enabling real-time communications.

Key benefits

  • Enabling 5G technology for today’s networks
  • Massive MIMO for increased capacity and coverage
  • Low latency for delay-sensitive applications
