Within five years, there are expected to be 1 billion 5G subscriptions.

Ericsson is one of the companies that is working to favor the adoption of 5G technology.

Among his latest contributions is the small cell radio 5G Radio Dot that favors the performance of mobile broadband required precisely by 5G. And he pays attention to interior coverage.

In practice, 5G Radio Dot is the evolution of the Ericsson Radio Dot System , so operators should be able to deploy the new solution along with other 4G without changing cabling infrastructure, network architecture or antenna locations .

Ericsson emphasizes that it is installed in less than half the time than other proposals for interiors .

“Adding small cell solutions to our 5G portfolio is a natural part of the evolution of the network. Companies have been asking for first-class interior connectivity, as well as higher speeds and capacity to handle advanced use cases that can not be covered by traditional interior systems, “says Nishant Batra, Ericsson’s Director of Network Infrastructure Product. . “Our 5G portfolio, driven by small cells , will train operators to respond to those demands.”

5G Radio Dot is prepared to support medium 5G (3-6 GHz) bands with up to 2 Gbps of speed.

If the calculations that are handled right now end up being fulfilled, the mobile data traffic will multiply by eight and will end up having about 1 billion 5G subscriptions by the end of 2023.

For now, tests will be done with 5G Radio Dot at the end of 2018, while its commercial launch is scheduled for 2019 .
