Ericsson releases standalone 5G software for mid, low bands

Monday 6 July 2020 | 11:31 CET | News
Ericsson launched Ericsson Standalone 5G NR software for 5G mid- and low bands. The software became globally available to all customers in June. With this software, communications service providers can now operate 5G NR without the need for signaling support from an underlying LTE network. This will allow service providers to add 5G NR to existing 4G sites with a simpler architecture, or deploy 5G independently in new areas such as factories, to support enterprise applications and services, the company said. All Ericsson Radio System equipment deployed since 2015 can support Standalone 5G NR
