Ericsson wins contract for 5G deployment in London and other major UK cities

By Caoimhe Toman

Date: Wednesday 28 Oct 2020

LONDON (ShareCast) - (Sharecast News) - Ericsson has won a contract to partner with BT to carry out the deployment of 5G tech in London and other major UK cities.

BT and EE customers in London, Edinburgh, Belfast and Cardiff among others will benefit from the Ericsson 5G Radio Access Network connectivity, the company said on Wednesday.

Ericsson will also modernize BT's existing 2G and 4G Radio Access Network (RAN) infrastructure enhancing customer experience and network performance for BT and EE customers.

The deal marks a significant strengthening in the BT-Ericsson strategic partnership and builds on BT's selection of Ericsson to provide the next-generation cloud-native dual-mode 5G Core earlier this year, the press release said.

Once the deployment is completed, Ericsson will manage around 50 percent of BT's 5G traffic.

The expanded partnership creates exciting opportunities for collaboration on the next generation of 5G products and services.

Philip Jansen, CEO of BT, said: "Our customers deserve the best network and we are delivering. We're the UK leader in 5G and are excited to be working with Ericsson as a key partner to maintain that market leadership. Through this deal, we will continue to drive the best mobile experiences for our customers. The lightning-fast speeds of 5G will help them to develop their businesses, stream a growing choice of content over our network, and stay in touch with colleagues and friends all over the world."

Börje Ekholm, President and CEO of Ericsson, said: "BT has a clear direction in how it wants to drive its 5G ambitions in the UK and we are delighted to be their partner in delivering that."

He added: "5G plays a critical role in meeting the UK's Digital ambitions, accelerating digitalization of the economy and stimulating next generation wireless innovation for consumers and enterprise. With leading 5G technology, a robust supply chain capability, and more than 120 years of local presence in the UK, we're committed to rolling out a reliable and secure 5G network alongside BT."
