"We have MoUs (agreements) with 36 operators globally. In India, we have recently tied up with Bharti Airtel for 5G technology," Ericsson Senior Vice President and Head of Market Area South East Asia, Oceania and India Nunzio Mirtillo told reporters here.
He, however, did not comment on the financial details of the partnership.
Ericsson is already a vendor to Bharti Airtel in areas like managed services and 4G.
This, Ericsson claimed, has an "extremely high throughput and ultra-low latency".
Mirtillo said the company is committed to the Indian market.
According to Ericsson's estimates, 5G technology that will support faster data access will enable a $27.3 billion revenue potential for Indian telecom operators by 2026.
"The largest opportunity will be seen in sectors like manufacturing, energy and utilities followed by public safety and health sectors," a report by Ericsson said.
It added that this will be over and above the revenue generated from traditional services, which is expected to grow up to $63 billion by 2026.
