Building 5G Networks
5G is happening, now. With the first commercial launches underway, we are preparing and equipping mobile service providers to go live. Our network technology allows mobile service providers to smoothly evolve their networks and minimize the time to market once they choose to switch on 5G.
As with past mobile generations, leading operators are eager to gain a first-mover advantage in 5G. Working with these service providers, Ericsson is leading the development of 5G technologies and the deployment of 5G commercial networks. With our 5G ready hardware and spectrum sharing, dual mode core and orchestration we support a quick and smooth introduction of 5G. We provide business insights to ensure early success and rapid adoption of 5G services for consumers and for industries. That’s how we enable service providers to capture the business growth and cost efficiencies of the improved capacity, density, latency and agility granted by 5G.
"In 2024, we project that 5G will reach more than 40 percent population coverage and 1.5 billion subscriptions, making it the fastest generation ever to be rolled out on a global scale."
