EricssonSpectrum Sharing now commercially available

• Ericsson Spectrum Sharing (ESS) will expand 5G coverage for global service providers
including Swisscom, Telstra, Ooredooand Play
• More than 80 percent of service providers testing Ericsson Spectrum Sharing plan to
deploy it in the coming12 months
• Ericsson Spectrum Sharing software can run on any of the five million 5G-ready radios
delivered since 2015
Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) announces that its uniquedynamic spectrum sharing solution is
commercially available,allowing communications service providers to quickly and cost-
effectively launch 5G on a nationwide scale.
Ericsson Spectrum Sharingallows both 4G and 5G to be deployed in the same band and on
the same radio through a software upgrade and dynamically allocates spectrum based on user demand on a 1 millisecond basis. Ericsson’s dynamic spectrum sharing is the most
economically feasible way to deploy 5G on existing bands – enabling wide 5G coverage
from day one – making more efficient use of spectrum and enabling superior user
Fredrik Jejdling, Executive Vice President and Head of Networks, Ericsson, says: “For the
first time, our customers do not have to re-farm spectrum before deploying a new ‘G’and can quickly get 5G on the same footprint as they have with 4G today. In the next 12
months, more than 80 percent of the commercial 5G networks we support will use our spectrum sharing solution to achieve broad 5G coverage.”
Julian Bright, Senior Analyst, Ovum/Omdia, says: “Spectrum is a scarce and costly resource
that should be used efficiently. Ericsson Spectrum Sharing will mean that service providers can rapidly roll out 5G on their FDD bands without the need to re-invest. It means they can
use both their new and existing bands for 5G high-speed, high-capacity services.
Dynamically allocating spectrum between 4G and 5G is going to be the best way to start
deploying 5G.”
ESS live with multiple service providers
Swisscom(CH) – With Ericsson as its sole mobile network vendor and strategic partner,
Swisscom was the first communications service provider in Europe to launch commercial
5G services in April 2019. InDecember 2019, Swisscom achieved nationwide 5G coverage
and is upgrading their network with Ericsson Spectrum Sharing.
Christoph Aeschlimann, Head of IT, Network & Infrastructure Group division, Swisscom,
says: “ESS is key for a fast adoption of 5G. It’s a win-win approach for customers and
operators. Customers benefit from 5G in no time and operators use their precious spectrum
in a most efficient manner. We are proud of being part of the ESS journey from the very
beginning. In the meantime, we already reached a nationwide coverage with 90 percent of
the population with 5G.”
Telstra (AU)– In May 2019, Telstra launched its commercial 5G network in Australia and
has now rolled out 5G coverage in 32 metropolitan and regional cities around the country
with the help of Ericsson, its key 5G network partner.
Channa Seneviratne, Network and Engineering Infrastructure Executive, Telstra, says:
“Ericsson Spectrum Sharing will continue to play a crucial role in helping Telstra pave the
way for a faster rollout of 5G, allowing us to serve the needs of 4G and 5G customers in the
same location at the same time. These milestones are especially important for Telstra and
the Australian landscape, where expanding 5G coverage over wide areas quickly and
efficiently are key to providing more Australians with access to 5G services.”
Ooredoo (QA) –After going commercially live with 5G on 3.5 GHz band in Doha, Ooredoo is
taking the next step to make its ‘Supernet’ fully 5G-enabled across the country with
Ericsson Spectrum Sharing.
Waleed Al Sayed, Chief Executive Officer, Ooredoo Qatar, says: “As we take the next leap
into being connected, Ericsson Spectrum Sharing comes as a unique innovation that dynamically shares spectrum between 4G and 5G carriers based on traffic demand. This
enables us, as mobile operators, to use our spectrum assets efficiently by driving 5G-wide
coverage roll-out quickly, smoothly and cost efficiently. This will help us achieve our
strategic objectives, enabling us to enhance our customers’ internet experience and enrich
their digital lives.”
