Hi3G Selects Ericsson to Develop Transport Network for 5G in Denmark
Ericsson has been selected by Hi3G, operating as 3 in Denmark, to modernize its transport network with 5G-ready routers over the next three years.
The new IP Mobile Backhaul transformation project will see the implementation of Router 6000 hardware, software and customer support (part of Ericsson Radio System). This will prepare Hi3G’s network for future 5G requirements, and support the significant increase in the number of connected devices on the network.
The Router 6000 series responds directly to operators' challenges of exponentially growing data traffic volumes and significant increase in the number of connected devices. It not only addresses operators’ needs for scalability, but also for security and higher operational efficiency.
The rollout will start during the fall of 2018 and expands Ericsson’s partnership with Hi3G. The Scandinavian communications service provider already has a long experience with Ericsson’s MINI-LINK product portfolio, which shares a common management system with Router 6000 series. This makes the management and deployment of Router 6000 easy and efficient.
Ericsson’s 5G Business Potential report, found that operators can add a revenue of USD 204 to 619 billion (12 to 36 percent) to their forecast service revenues of USD 1.7 trillion in 2026 by targeting the digital transformation of other industries, such as automotive and manufacturing, using 5G-IoT technology.
