Ericsson and Capgemini join forces on private 4G and 5G networks
Written by: Charlotte Hathway | Published:

Ericsson and Capgemini have announced they are teaming up to deliver end-to-end, turnkey and industry-specific private 4G and 5G networks.

Ericsson will supply private network products and services, whereas Capgemini will provide digitalisation and system integration capabilities. The companies say this will help communication service providers offer enterprises the best private network solutions.

The companies have already signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Swedish-Finnish mobile network operator (MNO) Telia to “identify, analyse, and carry out joint commercial projects” using dedicated 3GPP mobile networks in the Scandinavian market.

Magnus Leonhardt, head of strategy and innovation at Telia Sweden, said, “We’re joining forces with Capgemini and Ericsson to gain a better understanding of these opportunities and address them together. Having complementary technology-related strengths, execution power, and reach, we can deliver joint solutions that reduce complexity for our customers by replacing a multitude of communications systems with one scalable, future-proof 3GPP solution for 4G and 5G. We do this while offering enterprises the highest possible quality throughout the service and process lifecycle.”

Jacques Assaraf, global head of the telecom, media & technology sector at Capgemini, added, “Our clients come to us with the challenges of how to accelerate growth and transformation through innovation and digitalisation. We have identified private networks on 4G and 5G as a key driver to take digitalization to the next level, and through the collective experience we get through this partnership, we will be able to radically increase the impact of what we do for our customers. We have a strong global client base across all the industry segments, and many of our clients stand to benefit from our joint efforts with Ericsson and local network providers, as we continue to make substantial investments in the 5G and private network areas.”
