China Mobile selects Ericsson for 5G radio access, core network deployment

By

China Mobile has selected Ericsson to deploy its 5G radio access network (RAN) and 5G core (5GC) components for the second phase of its nationwide new radio (NR) standalone rollout.

Under the deal, China Mobile extends its 5G RAN partnership with the Swedish telecommunications equipment maker to 17 provinces in China - with the deployment of Ericsson Radio System products and solutions - as it seeks to further roll out 5G services across the country.

In addition, Ericsson will provide 5G core network equipment in two major regions, covering five provinces.

Ericsson says the 5G Core network will be deployed on NFVI along with Ericsson Dynamic Orchestration, and as part of a previous agreement, it is also providing cloud VoLTE, Cloud Unified Data Management (UDM) and Policy.

“Ericsson and China Mobile have continuously worked together to develop, validate, and test 5G technologies and applications, said Ericsson in a statement announcing the deal.

“This includes proactively developing products for China Mobile's 5G network deployment as well as customising 4G/5G compatible network solutions.

“The extended cooperation on 5G networks is a new milestone in a long partnership that spans nearly 30 years of mobile technology in China. Ericsson become one of key partners of China Mobile in 5G network construction.

“As a leading 5G supplier, Ericsson will continue to work with ecosystem and industry partners and contribute to China’s 5G development, creating a smart, digital future together.”
