Mobile, Ericsson Sign Major USD 3.5 Billion 5G Agreement

Mobile networking company Ericsson said Tuesday that it has reached a $3.5 billion deal to provide T-Mobile with the hardware and software to help roll out its next-generation 5G network, the second such deal the American company has struck in recent months. 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. Articles appear on euronews.com for a limited time. This comes on top of another $3.5 billion deal T-Mobile signed with Nokia.

We have recently chose to increase our investments in the U.S. to be closer to our leading customers and better support them with their accelerated 5G deployments, thereby bringing 5G to life for consumers and enterprises across the country.

T-Mobile Chief Technology Officer Neville Ray said that while the other guys just make promises, T-Mobile is putting its money where its mouth is.

The contract also encompasses Ericsson's digital services solutions, including dynamic orchestration, business support systems (BSS) and Ericsson Cloud Core, enabling T-Mobile to rapidly launch innovative and groundbreaking 5G experiences to customers.

T-Mobile means business when it comes to 5G. "This successful over-the-air test using the band that will offer 5G services in North America, also demonstrates the network and ecosystem readiness we have achieved".

Indeed, this deal follows one the USA wireless operator made with Nokia, earlier in the year. "Together with our partners we are continuing to prove the readiness of both the underlying technology and the ecosystem". (Shenzhen: 000063; Hong Kong: 0763), which are unable to sell products to the main United States service providers because government watchdogs say the Chinese companies are a potential threat to national security. In the period in-between, T-Cell's already installed unpleasant of Ericsson Radio Machine radios will likely be in a procedure to tear 5G NR technology by the usage of some distance flung instrument installation.Learn moreover: What is 5G?

Not to be outdone, Verizon announced this week that it successfully made the first over-the-air, end-to-end data transmission on a commercial 3GPP 5G New Radio (NR) network in Washington, DC.
