Ericsson announced on Tuesday that the installed base of all radio products from the Ericsson Radio System portfolio can now run 5G New Radio (NR) through a remote software installation.
“The combination of our new products and 5G support for radios already deployed in the field will give operators access to a very broad and flexible 5G portfolio. They will be able to move quickly to enhanced mobile broadband and address the new opportunities with industrial applications,” said Denis Brunetti, president of Ericsson Viet Nam, Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia.
“Investments in Ericsson Radio System since 2015 will continue to bring value to operators when the time is right for transition to 5G,” Brunetti said.
The advanced service will contribute to bring more ICT (information and communications technology) users, he said, adding that the company was committed to investing in ICT jobs in Viet Nam in the coming years.
According to the latest Ericsson Mobility Report, the global mobile data traffic is expected to grow eight times, while 5G subscriptions are predicted to reach one billion by the end of 2023. This puts increasing demand on operators to continue to expand capacity cost efficiently while addressing their 5G evolution. — VNS
