Nex-Tech Wireless, a Kansas-based wireless carrier, entered into a deal with Ericsson to modernise its network including the ability to service specific markets with 5G functionalities. To assist in modernising its network, Ericsson will provide Nex-Tech Wireless with its Fast VoLTE Launch platform, a full-stack industrialised and validated virtual IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) on Ericsson BSP8100, to enable HD quality voice over LTE (VoLTE), Wi-Fi calling, and future-enriched communication services on a range of devices across LTE, Wi-Fi and future 5G access.

In addition to the upgrades, Nex-Tech Wireless is rolling out 600Mhz 5G capable sites in specific markets, where Ericsson will provide 3GPP standards-based 5G New Radio (NR) hardware and software functionalities, together with virtual EPC upgrades of the Cloud Core network, so that the carrier can deploy 5G when ready.

The products launched in June. Ericsson collaborated with Nex-Tech Wireless in the past on over 350 LTE sites across the Midwest.
