Bell partners with Ericsson for 5G 

Bell Canada announced last week that Ericsson will be its new provider for radio access network (RAN) equipment for its national 5G wireless network This deal also includes service provisions for its one- of- a- kind Wireless Home Internet service which Bell has created to give high-speed internet across rural places in Canada. Ericsson currently has signed 92 commercial 5G deals with telecom providers all around the globe and is the first company to enable these on four continents.

The President and Head of Ericsson in North America, Niklas Heuveldop, expressed his gratitude stating that the company is very “proud to have earned Bell’s trust to be selected as one of their key partners and significantly expand our existing relationship to accelerate the transformation of their network with 5G mobile and fixed wireless technology. With our industry-leading 5G product portfolio, Bell will be able to provide Canadian consumers, enterprises and the public sector with innovative experiences and services whether they’re on the move or at home, regardless if they’re in urban or rural areas.”

With the current COVID-19 pandemic situation, Bell has focused their energy on keeping Canadians connected and informed which is why they have targeted to launch the initial 5G once the economy starts to open up again. The company is continually working with various multiple equipment suppliers for its 5G rollout. Bell has been using this multi-vendor strategy which is the main reason for Canada’s unprecedented mobile network of 4G LTE. This technology has now been made available in all provinces and territories extending it to 99 per cent of the population. In worldwide studies, the brand is seen to be one of the fastest 4G LTE networks in the world.

Bell continues to hold its promise of providing a faster 5G service than its previous LTE product with matching smartphones which will be available from the brand such as the Samsung Galaxy S20 5G series, LG V60 ThinQ 5G Dual Screen and Motorola Edge+. Bell will continue to cultivate the product as they improve speed, capacity and coverage. Ericsson will also be supporting Bell’s 5G-enhanced Wireless Home Internet service for rural areas in the near future.
