Ericsson and TDC rolled out commercial 5G in Denmark with the new pilot network. The pilot network went live during a joint Ericsson-TDC in event in Helsingør that featured multiple 5G demonstrations including an immersive gaming experience.
“The success of this 5G pilot signals great things in store not just for Helsingør but for Denmark as a whole. The benefits of 5G’s high speeds, low latency, and superior reliability will make a real difference,” said Arun Bansal, President of Europe and Latin America, Ericsson.
“I am truly excited that TDC, together with Ericsson, is building 5G infrastructure to enable a digital Denmark with the best wireless network. 5G will empower a new era for the digital economy and will allow Denmark to build on its position as a global digital frontrunner,” said Andreas Pfisterer, CEO, TDC NET.
He added, “We are very proud to be announcing the successful launch of this pilot network. Together with Ericsson, we are on track to bring 5G coverage to the entire country, allowing Danes to enjoy much faster mobile broadband able to support the ever-growing demands from new services and applications coming to the market.”
The network is built using Ericsson’s commercial 5G hardware and software, including Massive MIMO radio (AIR 6488) from Ericsson Radio System, and represents an important milestone in Denmark’s journey towards commercial 5G and global Industry 4.0 opportunities. In March 2019, Ericsson was chosen by TDC for the rollout of commercial 5G as part of a major network overhaul.
