Ericsson confirms 5G readiness for operators

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

Networking and MNC finalised 5G-readiness for operators by enhancing its Platform with new solutions for the radio and network.

In this regard, the company launched Radio Access Network (RAN) commercial software, based on the recently approved first 3GPP New Radio (NR) standard. It also introduced a new category of called Street Macro - a new site type that addresses the need of operators to grow in cities with limited available radio locations.

To capture growth opportunities presented by new use cases, expanded its System offering with new capabilities to support NR and also enhances its Distributed Cloud solution.

Earlier in February 2017, introduced its Platform, with additions made in September the same year. It comprised of the core, radio, and transport portfolios together with OSS/BSS, network services and security.

"Operators who want to be early with now have the essential pieces for launching networks already this year. With our expanded platform, they will get more efficient networks as well as opportunities to create new revenues from emerging consumer and industrial use cases," said Fredrik Jejdling, of at

Available in the fourth quarter of 2018, Ericsson's provides multi-band support for global deployment. It will allow operators to use new frequency spectrum as it becomes available.

The complements Ericsson's existing baseband and radios.

Operators can simply activate their networks and take the first steps with commercial capabilities and new applications leveraging advanced mobile services. This will cater efficiently for growing data traffic and enable access to multimedia content, such as 4K/8K video streaming and virtual reality/augmented reality.

According to Ericsson's new economic study of enhanced mobile broadband, evolution to will enable 10 times lower cost per gigabyte than current 4G.

The radio offering is complemented with commercial software, optimised for throughput, network capacity and scalability.

also evolved its Distributed Cloud offering for cloud application deployment across multiple sites - central, distributed, and edge. Managed, orchestrated, and perceived as one solution, it improves latency, security, and resilience, and fulfils regulatory requirements for 5G-enabled use cases. Distributed Cloud combines the best of telecom and cloud to enable networks as open cloud platforms for all workloads, including telecom, consumer, and enterprise applications.

As part of the Distributed Cloud, will support deployments of hardware options in a multi-vendor framework. With fast for remote upgrade and operation, brings Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) to the edge. To support efficient deployment of cloud native applications, also expands the offering with support for containers in a

also added a new category of for cities, which it calls Street Macro - a new layer between macro and micro. These radios will be on building facades with a smaller footprint but the necessary strength to secure network efficiency and coverage.

Furthermore, the company unveiled new supporting These products enable a smooth evolution from 4G to and address the need for increased capacity, while simplifying use for wider adoption.

The company said all installed base radios from the Radio System delivered since 2015 will be NR-capable by a
