Vendors offering 5G solutions for communications service providers (CSPs) were comprehensively and independently assessed and evaluated by Gartner experts on their Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute, to provide a market snapshot on 5G infrastructure abilities.
Around 50 percent of 5G traffic outside of China runs on Ericsson networks. R&D investments over the past four years have led to Ericsson increasing its market share outside of China to 39 percent in 2022, from around 33 percent in 2017.
There are currently 235 live 5G networks in commercial service, and Ericsson is powering 143 live 5G networks. In addition, Ericsson has been driving the cloud-native and dual-mode technology introduction for core networks.
Fredrik Jejdling, Executive Vice President and Head of Networks, Ericsson, says: “Being recognized once more as a Leader by Gartner feels truly rewarding. We believe it shows that investing in technology for performance and cost leadership continues to pay off and make an impact.”
Ericsson’s commercial 5G leadership and technology evolution leadership is independently known industry-wide. Ericsson has been recognized in Gartner 5G Magic Quadrant 2022, and Frost Radar Global 5G Infrastructure 2021. The company also ranked highest among telecom vendors in the latest ABI Research sustainability assessment.
Ericsson continuously evolves its end-to-end 5G offerings, which include 5G RAN with the energy-efficient Ericsson Radio System, Cloud RAN, Ericsson Silicon, 5G Core, Orchestration, and 5G Transport as well as professional services. The company has launched innovative software solutions such as Ericsson Spectrum Sharing, 5G Carrier Aggregation and Uplink Booster, which significantly improve coverage, user throughput and spectral efficiency.
At a pre-MWC 2023 briefing event on February 9, the company unveiled further enhancements to its 5G indoor, macro and mobile transport portfolios: more than 10 new macro and transport solutions that reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions while boosting network capacity; and three additions to the Ericsson Radio Dot System that boost 5G coverage, capacity, and capabilities across any indoor environment.
