Ericsson expands its end to end 5G platform in India

5G

Ericsson has expanded the end-to-end 5G Platform by adding new hardware and software products to the Ericsson Radio System portfolio. The system is designed to enhance the agility and speed with which Indian operators can roll out their 5G Platform networks. The company is also strengthening its end-to-end mobile transport solutions by building on its radio expertise. Moreover, Ericsson has added best-in-class transport technologies from Juniper Networks and ECI.

Ericsson is also launching the RAN Compute portfolio. It automatically responds to service provider’s need for greater flexibility in the deployment of Radio Access Network (RAN) software and hardware functions. The RAN Compute is an architecture that allows service providers to flexibly distribute RAN functions. It includes beamforming and radio control using which you can fine-tune use case performance while also lowering total cost of ownership.

The RAN Compute portfolio includes all the current basebands in addition to four new RAN Compute products. The aim is to provide up to three times the capacity of current basebands. The two new RAN Compute Basebands enable service providers to deploy RAN functions centrally.

The two new RAN Compute Radio Processors enable RAN functions to be placed closer to the radio for enhanced mobile broadband. It will also facilitate ultra-low latency applications to run properly while reducing site footprint.

Ericsson also launched the new Ericsson Spectrum Sharing software, which expands the versatility of Ericsson Radio System for 5G Platform deployments. The purpose of this move is to provide greater opportunity for the service providers to activate 5G and increase network coverage.

The software enables a smooth and fast network migration through the simultaneous and dynamic support of 4G and 5G Platform networks. This can be done by using the same spectrum band using the Ericsson Radio System. Moreover, it will enable service providers to deliver nationwide 5G coverage with a much more flexible spectrum migration strategy. It removes the need for a dedicated fixed spectrum asset to 5G and also to avoid reduction in the 4G performance.

In a statement released to the press, Ericsson also disclosed the launch of new transport solutions adapted to create an integrated and complete Street Macro solution for millimeter wave 5G deployment. The aim of this initiative is to manage data traffic in those areas that are in high demand.

Ericsson also extended the partnership with Juniper Networks. The Ericsson’s Router 6000 product family will be complemented by Juniper’s edge and core solutions, which provides seamless connectivity from radio cell site to core. Ericsson also announced a partnership with ECI, which will help them to deliver newly-enhanced optical transport solutions for service providers including critical infrastructure customers.
