Ericsson ready to embrace the 5G era and beyond

Ericsson is helping mobile operators begin the transition to 5G, but it is also working closely with industry to provide private LTE networks. Land Mobile caught up with Javier Garcia Gomez, Ericsson’s chief technology officer for Europe and Latin America, to find out more.

The first phase of 5G is now becoming a reality with mobile network operators (MNOs) launching 5G services in 2019. Ericsson, as one of the world’s leading cellular infrastructure and solution providers, is at the forefront of making this happen.

Ericsson has a full suite of 5G offerings ready to go, including non-standalone (NSA) 5G and standalone 5G New Radio (NR) solutions.

The initial wave focuses on enhanced mobile broadband to provide faster and higher data bandwidth. Later waves will deliver enhanced mobile broadband in vehicles, tablets, gaming devices, plus immersive AR and VR, along with lowcost, low-power wide-area (LPWA) Internet of Things (IoT) and support for massive IoT with dense concentrations of edge-connected devices.

A later wave of 5G will provide ultrareliable, low-latency communications (URLLC) to support mission-critical applications for public safety and other mission-critical communication users, enhanced vehicle-to-everything (V2X), non-terrestrial networks (ie, 5G over satellite for extended and back-up coverage), and Industry 4.0 applications, such as highly automated factories with dynamic robots, self-healing smart grids and perhaps autonomous vehicles.
