  • Ericsson is expanding the Massive MIMO product family with new solutions for the medium 5G frequency range.
  •  The  new 64T Massive MIMO radio module weighs just 20 kilograms, up to 45 percent less than the previous generation.
  • © The  lightweight Massive MIMO products are based on the Ericsson Silicon Chipsets and improve network performance with optimized energy efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions.
  • New Ericsson Radio Access Network (RAN) Compute solutions increase energy efficiency, flexibility of use and capacity with up to 50 percent higher transmission rates and 15 to 20 percent lower energy consumption.

Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) is expanding its Massive MIMO product family with three new radio modules. In addition, Ericsson is expanding the RAN Compute product portfolio with six additional products. ©

 The  new solutions are based on Ericsson Silicon – the company’s System-on-a-Chip (SoC) range. It offers the necessary computing power for the rapid expansion of energy-efficient and high-performance networks. With the new solutions, customers can accelerate the rollout in the medium 5G frequency spectrum.

With the medium 5G frequency range, mobile network operators can make better use of their 5G spectrum in order to introduce new services quickly and efficiently and to offer their customers faster connections. ©

 The  middle frequency band bridges the speed, capacity and coverage gaps between the low and high frequency ranges. 5G networks that make extensive use of the medium spectrum can offer consumers and companies a further optimized 5G supply.

Per Narvinger, Head of Product Area Networks, Ericsson, says: “After the initial rollouts of 5G networks, now is the time to scale 5G using Massive MIMO on a much larger scale. With our new portfolio, mobile network operators Accelerate your mid-frequency implementations, offer your users higher performance while reducing energy consumption. “


 The  basis for innovation

Ericsson’s new, ultra-light and compact 5G massive MIMO radio units for the mid-band range are part of the Group’s Antenna Integrated Radio (AIR) product line. Thanks to their compact design, they significantly reduce the space required at the location and increase the capacity there by more than three times.

Weighing just 20 kilograms, the new radio modules are up to 45 percent lighter than the previous generation and also around 20 percent more energy-efficient. ©

 The y also have passive cooling in order to minimize costly maintenance work. ©

 The  radio modules have a wide range of uses: from assembly on high-rise urban buildings to installations in suburban and rural areas for application scenarios such as fixed wireless access, automotive, transport and logistics.

Ericsson has also added six new products to its RAN Compute portfolio. This includes both indoor and outdoor options for 4G expansions and 5G rollouts in the medium frequency band. ©

 The y convince with up to 50 percent higher transmission capacity and 15 to 20 percent lower energy consumption compared to previous solutions.


 The  new solutions in Ericsson’s product families Massive MIMO and RAN Compute are based on the Ericsson Silicon SoCs. ©

 The y give the Massive MIMO radio units functions such as real-time channel estimation and high-precision beamforming. Additional security functions in the chips and the new hardware architecture ensure that software and sensitive data are protected at all times.

Ed Gubbins, Principal Analyst, GlobalData, says: “©

 The  introduction of this portfolio comes at an opportune time as network operators are now turning their attention to the use of the 5G spectrum in the medium band. Ericsson’s massive MIMO radio modules are characterized by their compact design and ©

 The ir low weight. That should help the operators to overcome challenges during the installation. What also distinguishes Ericsson is the stability and strength of the strategy to rely on their own chipsets. “
