Slovak Telekom switch on 5G commercial services covering large areas of Bratislava, capital city of Slovakia, using Ericsson's 5G Radio Access Network.

Slovak Telekom will use Ericsson Radio System products and solutions boost its B2C and B2B business offerings quickly and efficiently. This includes Spectrum Sharing solution, which will enable Slovak Telekom to roll out 5G across the country in a flexible way, facilitating a faster and smoother 5G adoption. In addition to the commercial 5G launch, there is also a plan to set up Slovakia’s first campus network (dedicated network), which will bring with it innovations in the field of industrial automation. The 5G-enabled private network will create new opportunities for the digitalization of Slovakia.

“We have launched the first phase of commercial 5G network in Bratislava and we would like to continue with several activities in the future. From the position of technology leader, we bring not only 5G network for many customers in our capital, but also the promise to build the first campus network with Ericsson for CEIT in Žilina which can bring up many new use cases. We believe that 5G is our gate to Industry 4.0 and we can push forward several areas of Slovak industry,” said Branimir Marič, CTIO at Slovak Telekom.

“5G opens up huge opportunities for national infrastructure and economy in Slovakia. We are very pleased that Slovak Telekom decided to bolster our collaboration and choose Ericsson both for 5G Radio and for the first campus network implementation. In a time where mobile networks are more critical than ever before, 5G is a transformation platform that will also provide stability in a post-COVID era in realizing Industry 4.0 vision and use cases,” said Jenny Lindqvist, Head of Northern & Central Europem at Ericsson.
