Global telecommunications giant Ericsson has been selected to supply United Nations peacekeeping missions around the globe with their own LTE networks, providing mission-critical communications capabilities.

With partner company Danoffice IT ApS, Ericsson will lead the implementation of LTE networking equipment as well as professional services and training.

The equipment is from the 5G-ready Ericsson Radio System portfolio, including the MINI-LINK microwave backhaul solution, in combination with Ericsson Cloud Packet Core.

Ercisson says the LTE network will significantly improve existing communications by providing stable, secure, and future-proof mobile broadband services for peacekeeping troops, often operating in tough geographical terrain and conditions.

And together with the latest mission-critical push-to-talk, data and video capabilities, specifically designed for professional use, communications, Ericsson says the network will be enriched to embody the full multimedia experience.

Currently there are 14 UN peacekeeping operations, and the missions typically have permission to use radio spectrum for planning, coordination and implementation of their activities. The first live UN Private LTE networks are expected to be up and running in 2019.

Ericsson says that by standardising their communications in this way, the UN ensures peacekeeping troops will have the latest communications systems as well as a cost-effective way to add new digital broadband services, such as HD video for real-time situational awareness, mobile positioning and cellular Internet of Things (IoT), including asset management and connected logistics solutions.

“The digitalisation through broadband that is driving so much development for business and society also has great potential in peacebuilding and humanitarian response,” said Helena Norrman, senior vice-president and head of Group Function Marketing & Corporate Relations, Ericsson

“We are proud to now be a supplier to the UN system providing communications capabilities that are crucial to their important work.”
