Ericsson has launched the Ericsson Radio System and Ericsson Radio Dot System in Malaysia. These solutions are designed to deliver the capacity and quality required from local networks that were originally built and optimized to deliver voice services across a defined coverage area.
Both of these Ericsson solutions will allow operators to improve data coverage and capacity for their subscribers, resulting in enhanced mobile broadband services, the global network vendor said.
Ericsson Radio System
Representing a generational shift, the Ericsson Radio System puts operators on the road to 5G by delivering industry-leading performance – on Ericsson’s Many-Core Baseband Architecture – while drastically reducing energy requirements, site space and installation time, it said.
The modular system includes new, more energy-efficient radios at half the size and weight of industry average, as well as the industry’s most powerful baseband and enables operators to capitalize on growing mobile broadband demand from consumers, businesses and the Internet of Things (IoT), and to build their business as they evolve to 5G.
Delivering industry-leading performance on the industry’s smallest site footprint with the lowest energy consumption, the Ericsson Radio System supports efficient building practices such as one-bolt installation, enabling fast deployment and reducing time-to-revenue while minimizing operating expenses.
Ericsson Radio Dot System
Complementing the launch of the Ericsson Radio System in Malaysia is the availability of the Ericsson Radio Dot System, which addresses a broad range of scenarios for providing high-quality indoor access to mobile broadband, voice services and reliable mobility. It is a solution for in-building environments that present a special set of challenges for operators in terms of complexity, scalability and service continuity.
A cellular radio that is small enough to fit a person’s hand, the disk-shaped, 300-gram Ericsson Radio Dot System provides “superior indoor network performance” and introduces a revolutionary antenna element, or “Dot,” that delivers high-quality mobile broadband access to users.
Because of its convenient size, distributed architecture, scalability through simple software upgrades and compelling evolution path, the Ericsson Radio Dot System caters to different kinds of users in medium-to-large indoor locations (for example office building, shopping malls, airports and sports stadiums) and enables operators to offer a complete indoor solution. Full feature parity with the macro network also enables simple deployments and upgrades to address growing capacity and coverage requirements. As a result, the user experience is consistent in every location, and the indoor network can evolve together with the outdoor network.
Todd Ashton, Head of Ericsson Malaysia and Sri Lanka, says: “Ericsson has been in Malaysia since before mobile networks were introduced and we are proud to have been a driving force in the creation and development of the mobile industry in Malaysia. After 50 years in the country, we continue to address Malaysia’s connectivity and mobile broadband requirements by introducing innovative products and solutions.
“The new modular, compact and energy-efficient Ericsson Radio System is an ideal platform for Ericsson to support the business of operators in Malaysia today, laying the foundation for 5G and the Networked Society.”
