Far EasTone selects Ericsson for 5G

Taipei, Taiwan: city view at night.

Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) has been selected by Taiwanese communications service provider Far EasTone (FET) as its 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) vendor. The deal spans 5G RAN across FET’s spectrum assets in the low, mid and high bands using Ericsson Radio System products and solutions.

FET expects the first commercial 5G services on the 3.5GHz spectrum band to be ready during summer 2020 in Taiwan. Ericsson is currently the sole provider of FET’s 4G LTE network.

Ericsson Spectrum Sharing and artificial intelligence (AI)-powered radio access network solutions will be deployed as part of the roll out. Ericsson Spectrum Sharing will help FET to allocate spectrum assets efficiently based on traffic demand using existing infrastructure – enabling a smoother transition to 5G. read more
