Ericsson announces 5G massive MIMO and RAN compute products

By

European telecommunications provider Ericsson has announced three new massive MIMO radios and six new RAN compute products to help with 5G mid-band rollouts.

Ericsson's new solutions are powered by the company's own Ericsson Silicon system on a chip.

This provides real-time channel estimation and ultra-precise beamforming, along with improved security.

The ultra-lightweight, mid-band massive MIMO 5G radios are part of Ericsson's AIR portfolio, and reduce site footprint while delivering a threefold capacity increase.

The new radios are also as much as 45% lighter and 20% more energy efficient than the previous generation, with passive cooling to minimise maintenance.

They are said to be suitable for deployment on urban high-rise buildings as well as suburban and rural locations, and can be used for various applications including fixed wireless access, automotive, transport and logistics.

"After the first rollouts of 5G networks, now is the time to scale up 5G by leveraging massive MIMO to a much larger extent," said Ericsson head of product area networks Per Narvinger.

"With our new portfolio, communications service providers can speed up their mid-band deployments efficiently with superior performance for their users, while reducing energy consumption."

The new RAN compute products include indoor and outdoor options for 4G expansions and mid-band 5G rollouts, providing up to 50% more throughput with 15 to 20% lower energy consumption.
