Japanese ICT firm Fujitsu and Swedish multinational networking and telecommunications company Ericsson have signed an agreement to deliver end-to-end 5G network solutions and associated services, initially for the 5G network in Japan.

In a statement, the two companies said they would seek to expand collaboration to provide solutions for other customers globally.

Both companies have a strong background in research and development and this is expected to help in catering to other markets.

Tango Matsumoto, executive vice-president and head of Network Business Group at Fujitsu, said: "Through this partnership with Ericsson, we will provide flexible 5G network systems that are open and standard compliant, and will leverage our expertise in wireless technologies and network integration to a wide range of customers in and outside of Japan.

"From mobile broadband, expected to be the first widespread use case of 5G, to the Internet of Things and beyond, this partnership holds out the promise of exciting new business opportunities."

Fredrik Jejdling, executive vice-president and head of Business Area Networks at Ericsson, said: “Our global expertise in 5G combined with our understanding of the local market puts us in an excellent position to support the introduction of 5G in Japan.

"By working closely with operators and partners, we are creating solutions that will bring successful use cases and applications to the market. With Fujitsu we get an excellent partner to accelerate this development.”
