T-Mobile US will test FDD with Ericsson 5G equipment
The network infrastructure community remains laser-focused on facilitating the customer transition from LTE to 5G with pre-standard equipment that can be upgraded to the next-generation standards once it’s agreed to by 3GPP. Ahead of Mobile World Congress Americas next week, Ericsson announced an addition to its 5G radio portfolio with a new radio, the AIR 2346, that supports frequency-division duplex (FDD) massive multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO).
Ericsson is working with carrier T-Mobile US to test FDD massive MIMO at three sites in Baltimore, Md., marking what Ericsson called “the first time that standardized massive MIMO will be used to carry commercial LTE traffic using mid-band FDD spectrum.”
T-Mobile US CTO Neville Ray said its partnering with the vendor on “tech that advances LTE today and paves the way for 5G tomorrow.”
