Ericsson selected by TDC to roll out commercial 5G in Denmark
Ericsson has been selected by Danish service provider TDC to roll out nationwide commercial 5G, as part of a major network overhaul, and provide managed services through the Ericsson Operations Engine. TDC's 5G network will be enabled by Ericsson's 5G Platform. Ericsson will modernize TDC's entire Radio Access Network network with the latest solutions from Ericsson Radio System, while TDC's core network will be modernized with Ericsson's dual-mode 5G Cloud Core solution. Roll-out of Ericsson 5G New Radio hardware and software products will begin in 2019 in line with 5G licensing obligations. TDC will make 5G available to selected customers under pilot testing from mid-2019, with actual 5G network roll-out expected to be initiated in October - pending the anticipated approval and availability of licensed 5G spectrum.
