Are you ready to create the 4G evolution and 5G future?


5G is coming soon, and Ericsson is the early leader in bringing it to market.

With the commercial launch of 5G expected in 2020, and pre-commercial trials already happening now, there’s never been a better time for you to make your mark.

The possibilities are endless across industries – from automotive and transport to agriculture, utilities, and more. 


The Product Development Unit (PDU) 4G&5G is responsible for development, release and maintenance of both 4G and 5G Networks.

To meet the next step, the PDU has accelerated the efforts towards 5G and the RAN Systems group within the PDU is responsible for specifying requirements and solutions for the RAN area.

Predicting the future is fun. Inventing it is powerful. We do both.
