Ericsson, a leading provider of digital communication services, has announced the launch of new software and hardware solutions to expand 5G deployment options.
According to a statement, the solutions will extend network capacity and coverage, as well as facilitating a range of consumer and industry use cases.
In February 2019, Ericsson revealed that it would cooperate with mobile service provider China Unicom to develop a 5G “smart” harbour at the Port of Qingdao, China.

With the introduction of standalone New Radio (NR) software, in addition to the non-standalone 5G NR which has already started to rollout, new network architecture will be created for major benefits such as ultra-low latency and even better coverage.
In addition to this, Ericsson has also announced that it is evolving its cloud solution, optimizing the technology for edge computing in order to meet user demand.
As a result, high accuracy and low latency 5G services – such as augmented reality and content distribution – can be offered by service providers at a low cost.
According to the survey’s findings, early commercial 5G deployments have already been announced, with examples across the globe in the United States, China, and Japan… #PTIDaily #5G #Connectivity #Economy https://t.co/Ihisg88AdY

Two new Massive MIMO radios have also been added to the Ericsson Radio System mid-band portfolio, “allowing service providers to build 5G with precision”.
Fredrik Jejdling, Executive Vice President and Head of Business Area Networks at Ericsson: “We continue to focus our efforts on helping our customers succeed with 5G.
“These new solutions will allow them to follow the 5G evolution path that fits their ambitions in the simplest and most efficient way.”
