NEW DELHI: Networking and telecommunications MNC Ericsson finalised 5G-readiness for operators by enhancing its 5G Platform with new solutions for the radio and core network.

In this regard, the company launched 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) commercial software, based on the recently approved first 3GPP 5G New Radio (NR) standard. It also introduced a new category of radio products 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 5G use cases, Ericsson expanded its 5G Core System offering with new capabilities to support 5G NR and also enhances its Distributed Cloud solution.

Earlier in February 2017, Ericsson introduced its 5G Platform, with additions made in September the same year. It comprised of the 5G core, radio, and transport portfolios together with OSS/BSS, network services and security.

"Operators who want to be early with 5G now have the essential pieces for launching 5G 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, Executive Vice President and Head of Business Area Networks at Ericsson.

Available in the fourth quarter of 2018, Ericsson's 5G radio network software provides multi-band support for global deployment. It will allow operators to use new frequency spectrum as it becomes available. The 5G radio network software complements Ericsson's existing baseband and 5G radios.

Operators can simply activate their 5G networks and take the first steps with commercial 5G capabilities and new applications leveraging advanced mobile broadband 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 5G will enable 10 times lower cost per gigabyte than current 4G.

The radio offering is complemented with 5G Core commercial software, optimised for 5G throughput, network capacity and scalability.

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

Ericsson also added a new category of radio products 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 radio products supporting Massive MIMO technology. These products enable a smooth evolution from 4G to 5G and address the need for increased capacity, while simplifying use for wider adoption.

The company said all installed base radios from the Ericsson Radio System delivered since 2015 will be 5G NR-capable by a remote software installation.
