Ericsson promotes dynamic spectrum sharing to reduce 5G cost and risk

Until the 5G core and surrounding cloud-native platform are fully developed and available, the business benefits an operator can gain from early 5G deployment remain limited, and it is essential to keep costs under control. While the 5G core and fully disaggregated RAN promise to enable the operator to target many new revenue streams in a flexible, cost-efficient way, the Non-Standalone 5G network can only realistically enhance existing mobile broadband services – with, perhaps, some incremental revenue uplift from applications like augmented reality – and support fixed wireless as a new revenue stream for selected operators. So a large-scale 5G roll-out in new spectrum and on a new grid of sites and backhaul will not be justified by such marginal…
