Ericsson launches two new radio systems in Malaysia
By Digital News Asia October 29, 2015
- Radio network solutions originally built mainly for voice
- New solutions allow operators to meet demands of app economy
ERICSSON has launched the Ericsson Radio System and Ericsson Radio Dot System in Malaysia, saying these solutions are designed to deliver the capacity and quality required from local networks that were originally built and optimised to deliver voice services across a defined coverage area.
The two new solutions will allow operators to improve data coverage and capacity for their subscribers, resulting in enhanced mobile broadband services, Ericsson said in a statement.
Ericsson first announced the Radio Dot System in October, 2013.
“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,” said Todd Ashton, head of Ericsson Malaysia and Sri Lanka.
“[It lays] the foundation for 5G (Fifth Generation) and the ‘Networked Society’,” he added.
Radio network solutions were originally built mainly for voice coverage, but now need to meet the growing capacity demands of apps, Ericsson said.
This is especially true of indoor environments, where providing coverage has traditionally been challenging for operators because of high costs and limited scalability.
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, the company claimed.
The modular system includes new, more energy-efficient radios at half the size and weight of the industry average, as well as the industry’s most powerful baseband.
It enables operators to capitalise on the growing mobile broadband demand from consumers, businesses and the Internet of Things (IoT), and to build their business as they evolve to 5G.
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, the company said.
