Ericsson to unveil new radio system



Ericsson has announced they will be unveiling a new radio system at next week’s Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona. The new system promises to be 50% smaller and lighter, and provide three times the capacity density while cutting energy consumption roughly in half from current traditional radio equipment. In a released statement, Ericsson says the system is a modular, end-to-end solution that incorporates a broad range of new products including macro and small cells, antenna systems, IP transport, microwave nodes, rails and other site equipment.

The company also promises the system was designed to provide easier installation than current models, designed with a “innovative rail system that adapts to any site, with zero floor footprint and easy one-bolt installation.”

Arun Bansal, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Unit Radio, Ericsson, said “We never compromise on radio network performance. Our experienced R&D team slashed the size and weight in half across the product line only after we secured performance. Ericsson Radio System’s multi-standard, multi-band, multi-layer architecture with integrated backhaul provides an ideal platform for operators to support their business today and on the road to 2020, laying the foundation for 5G.”
