Mobile, Ericsson sign major USD 3.5Bn 5G agreement

There is likely to be a bit of a PR arms race over big 5G deal wins among the kit vendors, but we won't be seeing any of that action from Huawei in the US. "This settlement marks a important milestone for both companies."T-Cell and Ericsson rival Nokia moreover announced a $Three.5 billion 5G deal motivate in July". On Tuesday, the nation's third largest wireless provider matched that investment through a similar agreement with Ericsson.

Qualcomm and Ericsson completed recently a 3GPP Rel-15 spec compliant lab data call using Qualcomm's mobile test device and Ericsson's commercial 5G NR radio AIR 5331 and baseband products.

Ericsson would also provide its digital services solutions to T-Mobile, including dynamic orchestration, business support systems (BSS) and Ericsson Cloud Core for faster 5G deployment, Ericsson said. "With this new Ericsson agreement we're laying the groundwork for 5G - and with Sprint, we can supercharge the 5G revolution".

"With both companies bringing together industry-leading network technology, we and Ericsson will be able to more effectively capitalise on the vast global market opportunity in front of us and help our customers simplify their journey to fully operational 5G networks", he added. It will also expand the carrier's existing LTE capacity needs, while future-proofing the network. Add it up and T-Cell is investing $7 billion in 5G between the two companies.


All four major U.S. operators have advanced 5G roadmaps with the first services due to go live later this year.

The Ericsson agreement is the company's second recent multi-billion dollar 5G deal.

Nokia has also continued to champion its "end-to-end" portfolio as a major advantage over Ericsson, which is largely focused on the development of radio access networks and lacks Nokia's IP, optical and fixed-line expertise. Executives have repeatedly argued that a combined entity will be able to roll out 5G services much faster than if the companies remain separate, hoping to sway U.S. authorities concerned that China might be winning the 5G race. "Together with our partners we are continuing to prove the readiness of both the underlying technology and the ecosystem".

And there are still hurdles to overcome, not least 5G's limited range and penetration.
