With Ericsson Spectrum Sharing a new way of rolling out 5G is established. With this unique solution operators can re-use infrastructure assets, quickly introduce wide area 5G coverage in existing spectrum, increase coverage of mid/high band and shift capex investments from new sites to new 5G use cases. Ericsson Spectrum Sharing is supported by all major chipset vendors. Ericsson Spectrum Sharing is based on 3GPP-defined Dynamic Spectrum Sharing, with added unique Ericsson innovations like intelligent scheduler algorithms and smart coordination of signaling. A blazing millisecond coordination allows for fast and highly efficient dynamic sharing of resources between 5G and 4G for best network performance

Judges Comments

“This is a powerful enabler that will help accelerate the rollout of 5G by maximising the re-use of existing hardware, thus saving costs while avoiding disruption to customer service, and helping to speed time to revenue for both telcos and customers.”
