Danish telecom giant TDC Group has selected Ericsson to deploy commercial 5G across the country.
The collaboration, which is part of a major network overhaul, will offer services through the Ericsson Operations Engine and enable the company to drive its ‘Digital Denmark’ campaign by assisting mobile broadband subscribers, enterprises, and industries to capitalise on 5G, IoT, and Industry 4.0.
Ericsson will provide its 5G platform for TDC’s 5G cellular network.
The Swedish telecom giant will help modernise TDC’s complete Radio Access Network (RAN) with the latest solutions from Ericsson Radio System, and TDC’s core network will be modernised with Ericsson’s dual-mode 5G Cloud Core solution.
Ericsson 5G New Radio (NR) hardware and software products will be rolled out in 2019, aligning with the country’s 5G licensing obligations.
5G will go through a pilot testing phase from mid-2019 and will be available to selected customers only.
