Ericsson has delivered 2 million radio base stations

(PresseBox) ( Düsseldorf, )
.
- Progress continues toward 50 billion connected devices by 2020
- One million base stations delivered since 2007
- Milestone shows extent of technology and market leadership

It took Ericsson some 20 years to install one million radio base stations as announced in 2007, but it took only three years to deliver the next million. The two millionth radio base station was an Ericsson RBS 6000 unit, delivered today as part of a mobile broadband network expansion project.

Ericsson has led the adoption of mobile broadband technology and has supplied the majority of HSPA networks operating at speeds of 14.4 Mbps or higher. In addition, Ericsson is the only supplier participating in all major 4G/LTE network builds currently underway. Ericsson's mobile network equipment in total already connects well more than 1.5 billion people worldwide.

"Ericsson's milestone delivery is proof of the explosive growth of mobile broadband," said Ericsson's Vice President and Head of Radio Networks Ulf Ewaldsson. "The exponential growth in consumer adoption, data speeds and technology advancements continues to transform the way people communicate. As the world leader in mobile communications, Ericsson is proud of its role in advancing the industry."

A main driver behind the massive acceleration of deliveries is Ericsson's RBS 6000, a multistandard, energyefficient base station that supports GSM/EDGE, WCDMA/HSPA and LTE in a single package.

The RBS 6000 series products are available in indoor, outdoor and mainremote packages. Its compact design requires only 25 percent of the space used by previous generations while at the same time increasing capacity by over 10 times. The RBS 6000 series substantially reduces power consumption by 20 to 65 percent, compared to earlier Ericsson radio base stations thereby. They are the most energy efficient and bestinclass base stations available in the industry.
