MTN and Ericsson partner to launch 5G Network Connection to South African Cities 7

MTN South Africa have today announced the availability of its 5G commercial offering using Ericsson products in the cities of Bloemfontein and Port Elizabeth.

This latest development coming after Telma Madagascar powered by also Ericsson to switch on its 5G commercial network to offer subscribers high-speed services enabled by the new generation of mobile connectivity.

Hol’up, we thought 5G causes Coronavirus??!

MTN previously upgraded to Evolved Packet Core (EPC) by Ericsson which enabled MTN to launch 5G services based on new radio (NR) non-standalone (NSA) while paving the way for a smooth evolution into NR Standalone and 5G Core (5GC) in future.

Under the 2019 Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), Ericsson committed to provide MTN with radio access network equipment from its Ericsson Radio System portfolio, which enable 5G services on both low- and mid-band. Ericsson’s solutions to MTN also includes the award-winning Ericsson Spectrum Sharing.

The President of Ericsson Middle East and Africa, Fadi Pharaon, says: “Today’s event means that the 5G era in South Africa is becoming a reality. Soon, South Africans will be able to experience 5G in their daily lives and witness its positive impact on society and industry. We have a rich history of working in close partnership with MTN and now we are going live with 5G in South Africa.

With many live commercial 5G networks across the globe, we look forward to continuing our long-standing partnership with MTN, jointly leading and driving innovation to ensure the digitalization of Africa.”

And no doubt this has been the major headache in Africa with Health sector all having challenges communicating and managing the rising Covid-19 cases especially as a time when video conferencing seems to be the norm.

What to expect…

Two key 5G use cases for the Madagascar market are enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) and Fixed Wireless Access (FWA).

With greater capacity, higher data speeds and reduced latency, 5G will power new experiences for Telma customers, from gaming and entertainment services, to IoT and business applications. Healthcare and education are areas that will deeply benefit from this technology.

Ericsson Spectrum Sharing will enable MTN to quickly launch 5G services over a wide area and successively expand 5G coverage in a tailored way by re-using existing network infrastructure and taking advantage of previous spectrum investments.

MTN can therefore provide 5G commercial services and move towards Standalone (SA) 5G without the need for blanket costly re-investment. Industries such as transportation, healthcare and manufacturing can leverage 5G capabilities to accelerate digital transformation and deploy advanced automation technologies.

What next for 5G in other African Countries?

Ericsson currently has 95 commercial 5G agreements and contracts with unique operators, of which 55 are publicly announced 5G deals, including 43 live 5G networks on five continents.

Public view of the Fifth Generation Tech has been so much distorted in Africa with conspiracy theories relating it to the Covid-19 pandemic doing nothing to quell the fears and misunderstanding.

However, the introduction of the network in major Africa countries will go a long way to either proving the doubters wrong and hopefully correcting any wrong perspective of the Next-Gen tech.
