Ericsson adds lightweight radio to massive MIMO portfolio for 5G mid-band roll-outs

Tuesday 21 September 2021 | 15:13 CET | News
Ericsson unveiled the latest addition to its Massive MIMO portfolio, the ultra-lightweight antenna-integrated radio AIR 3268, for easier and efficient 5G mid-band deployments in dense urban and suburban areas. At 12 kg (26lb) and 23 liters, AIR 3268 is the lightest and smallest Massive MIMO radio in the industry, Ericsson claims. With 200W output power, 32 transceivers and passive cooling, the radio weighs about 40 percent less than the earlier generation, making installations easy not only on towers and rooftops, but also on poles and walls.
