Ericsson has been selected by Telenet as their 5G radio access network (RAN) provider, bringing wide-reaching benefits of 5G to Belgium. As part of their expanded partnership, Telenet will use Ericsson’s technology leadership to modernise their existing network, as well as deploy crucial 5G connectivity.

This latest contract includes the full modernisation of Telenet’s existing RAN (2G/3G/4G) with Ericsson Radio System products and solutions and the deployment of 5G technology nationwide.

Telenet’s customers will benefit from technologies whose full potential will be unleashed with the rollout of 5G, such as AR, VR, and IoT applications.

Micha Berger, CTIO Telenet, says: “We are on the eve of a next step in our technological evolution. 5G is so much more than a radio technology system – it is the engine for innovation and opportunities for other ways of working, automation and analysis. But as with any next generation it all starts with developing a high-performance network.”

Ericsson delivers best-in-class 5G RAN technology, which includes its Massive MIMO portfolio that offers a wide range of antenna-integrated radios for maximum 5G experience and capacity, both in urban and rural settings. Ericsson has recently bolstered its Massive MIMO portfolio with industry-leading lightweight and energy-efficient products, combined with real-time and ultra-precise beamforming capabilities. These capabilities are essential for an optimised 5G network and allow 5G signals to focus on individual receiving devices to maximise both coverage and capacity.
