Ericsson leads in LTE Infrastructure deployment

Premier analyst and leading worldwide Information Technology research and advisory fi rm, Gartner, has named the global Information Technology infrastructure company, Ericsson as a leader in the Long Term Evolution industry globally.

Gartner, in its 2013 Magic Quadarnat Report, notes that Ericsson’s end-to-end offering, footprint and professional services give a uniquely strong position to leverage Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) accounts, even as It recognised that Ericsson powers nine of top 10 LTE operators’ live networks.

The LTE leadership position by Ericsson, according to Gartner, is coming for the fourth year in a row.

Gartner evaluated end-toend vendors of LTE equipment (radio and core) based on their ability to execute and completeness of vision in the LTE market.

Ericsson provides heterogeneous network solutions with Wi-Fi integration for small cells, an end-to-end LTE offering with a large footprint, Worldwide Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) and CDMA, together with professional services.

Commenting on the report, Vice President and Head of Product Area Radio, Ericsson, Thomas Noren, said, “We are pleased Gartner has recognized us as a leader in the LTE Magic Quadrant yet another year running. We believe this confi rms other independent measurements and leading operator reports that Ericsson has the best network performance in the industry.”

Speaking further, Noren, said, “We are also the only vendor that has commercial Antenna Integrated Radio products, which deploy quickly and bring further radio coverage benefi ts that enable operators to provide higher speeds and handle more traffi c cost effectively. Ericsson will continue to show leadership in services; for example, we are the leading vendor of VoLTE and LTE Broadcast.”

Ericsson is present in high traffi c markets, and of the top 10 LTE operators ranked by LTE subscriptions in May, 2013, Ericsson powers nine of these top 10 LTE operators’ live networks.

Ericsson is the prime driver of open standards and has had the most signifi cant impact on the LTE specifi cations released to date.

Ericsson expects to hold 25 per cent of all essential patents for LTE, making it the largest patent holder in the industry. Ericsson is the industry leader in managed services, managing networks that serve over 800 million subscribers globally.
