Ericsson inks new agreement on 5G with South Korea’s SK Telecom

By

Ericsson has sealed a new commercial agreement with SK Telecom, to help the South Korean telco to migrate to 5G Core stand-alone architecture.

The deal with the Swedish telcommunications equipment maker sees Ericsson selected to deliver a Cloud Packet Core, expands on an existing 5G core network transformation project and will help SK Telecom improve network performance and user experience.

SK Telecom switched on its commercial 5G network in December 2018 after selecting Ericsson as one of its primary 5G vendors, and previously, Ericsson provided radio access network (RAN) products, including mid-band Massive MIMO.



Jung Chang-kwan, Vice President and Head of Infra Engineering Group, SK Telecom, says: “By utilising Ericsson’s Cloud Packet Core network solution, which realises simplified network operations, we will unleash the full potential of new 5G-enabled use cases with greater efficiency.”

Ericsson Senior Vice President and Head of Digital Services, Jan Karlsson, says: “This deal, and the opportunity to work with SK Telecom’s Network Functions Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI), has put us in the ideal position to further strengthen their 5G network.

“Delivering our Cloud Packet Core solution will positively impact SK Telecom’s network operations and will reinforce Ericsson’s position as a leader in 5G core.”
