Ericsson inks $3.5 billion 5G deal with T-Mobile US

T-Mobile shares are higher Tuesday, as the United States wireless network operator announced it had signed a new 5G deal with Swedish telecoms business, Ericsson.

After AT&T announced updated 5G partnerships and rollout plans on Monday, T-Mobile announced a $3.5B deal with Ericsson to build out 5G infrastructure.

T-Mobile, the third biggest US mobile carrier, said in February it was working with Ericsson and rival network vendor Nokia of Finland to build out 5G networks in 30 USA cities during 2018. The deal is a multi-year one and will see the Swedish company provide T-Mobile with 5G New Radio (NR) hardware and software compliant with 3GPP standards.

Ericsson increased its market share of the mobile networks market in the second quarter, partly due to faster network upgrades in the North American, where it ranks as the biggest supplier ahead of Nokia.

The agreement also adds Ericsson's digital services solutions, including dynamic orchestration, business support systems (BSS) and Ericsson Cloud Core, helping T-Mobile take 5G experiences to the market.

"While the other guys just make promises, we're putting our money where our mouth is", blurted TMUS CTO Neville Ray in the approved corporate style.

"We have recently chose to increase our investments in the USA to be closer to our leading customers and better support them with their accelerated 5G deployments; thereby bringing 5G to life for consumers and enterprises across the country", said Niklas Heuveldop, Head of Ericsson North America. "This settlement marks a most well-known milestone for each companies".

As it moves from LTE Suited networks to 5G, T-Cell talked about this is able to presumably well spend the Ericsson portfolio of merchandise to originate better its existing LTE skill while readying the community for the 5G soar. On the same day, Verizon, along with Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies, announced the completion of an end-to-end call with a smartphone form factor test device on a commercial 3GPP 5G New Radio (NR) network in Minneapolis.

The operator also reports that Ericsson will supply hardware and software across all spectrum bands available to T-Mobile (including the carrier's 28 GHz millimeter wave - high frequency spectrum particularly important for facilitating 5G speeds).
