As we have told you earlier that AT&T has started working 5G Network in Collaboration with Intel and Ericsson. AT&T is started testing 5G network in one of the labs of Intel. Now Ericsson Launches 5G Platform Combining 5G Radio System & Core Network. Ericsson’s new 5G platform comprises the 5G core, radio and transport portfolios, together with digital support systems, transformation services and security.
Ericsson Launches 5G Platform Combining 5G Radio System & Core Network
Arun Bansal, Head of Business Unit Network Products at Ericsson, said.
“With this launch, we introduce our 5G platform to support the beginning of a huge change in network capabilities, allowing our customers to offer more advanced use cases and new business models to their customers,”
According to Ericsson, the global market for 5G would reach $582bn by 2026. Because now telecom operators start adopting 5G for industry digitalization. Using 5G technology, telecom companies will get 34% revenue growth opportunities in ten years.
With the components already introduced to the market, like 5G plug-ins and first 5G NR, Ericsson has mage these achievements by launching;
- The market’s first complete 5G radio system.
- The first version of an E2E Core network capable of 5G use cases based on network slices.
- A 5G core network which can now be connected to 5G NR radio.
Ericsson’s 5G core system is capable of use cases based on network slices. Network slicing allows operators to provide dedicated virtual networks. Network slicing provide the functionality specific to the service or customer on a common network.
The networking giant’s complete radio system is available across all frequency ranges, allowing for global 5G communications. It also supports the new standardized 5G front-haul interface known as eCPRI.
Thomas Noren, senior advisor for Ericsson’s Network Products business unit, said.
“There has been a lot of encouraging progress in 5G standardisation last year, including the beginning of live field trials. Big efforts in research and development are key to this, and our collaboration with IBM Research on phased array antennas can help operators to effectively deploy radio access infrastructure necessary to support a 5G future,”
