Ericsson: Ericsson 5G field trial gear achieves peak downlink throughput over 25 Gbps with MU-MIMO

* Ericsson 5G Radio Prototypes use MU-MIMO and beam tracking to deliver more
than excess 25 Gbps throughput while ensuring reach and continuity of
high-speed, high frequency, fully mobile connections
* NTT DOCOMO and Korea Telecom executives witness powerful and commercially
viable performance of Ericsson 5G innovations for operator field trials
* Live demonstration of 5G Radio Prototypes featured at MWC 2016

With 5G slated for commercialization in 2020, leading mobile operators are
already planning 5G pre-standard field trials to test advanced technology
features that can effectively harness high frequency spectrum. Ericsson 5G
Radio Prototypes use Multi-user, Multiple Input, Multiple Output (MU-MIMO)
and Massive MIMO to increase downlink throughput. They also use advanced
beam-tracking, which is required in millimeter wave bands to ensure high
performance and reliability for users as they move through the network.

Seizo Onoe, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at NTT
DOCOMO, INC., says: "We are very pleased that Ericsson 5G Radio Prototypes
have enabled this great achievement through the 5G technical collaboration
between Ericsson and DOCOMO, which has been going on for years. Both
companies are already conducting joint outdoor trials to understand how 5G
will really perform in the field. This will enable us to plan for the new and
enhanced services that we will be able to offer with 5G. We will be in a good
position to highlight our commercial 5G capabilities in 2020."

Dongmyun Lee, Chief Technology Officer at KT, says: "Though our work with
Ericsson, KT is on-track to preview the innovative new 5G services at the
PyeongChang 2018 Olympics. We appreciate that Ericsson is enabling us to
trial 5G capabilities with the advanced features, like beam tracking, MU-MIMO
and Massive MIMO, that we will need as we plan for 5G commercialization."

Ericsson 5G Radio Prototypes are currently delivering more than 12 Gbps mobile
experience per user, in live networking environments with downlink throughput
of more than 25 Gbps using MU-MIMO. The live demonstration for both NTT
DOCOMO and KT took place indoors on the Ericsson campus in Kista, Sweden and
will also be featured at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Each compact 5G Radio Prototype - the size of a piece of carry-on luggage -
supports the equivalent of 40 LTE carriers.

Arun Bansal, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Unit Radio, Ericsson,
says: "Ericsson enables our leading operator customers to experience advanced
5G features achieving real-world performance benchmarks. With Ericsson's 5G
Radio Prototypes, we are already supporting MU-MIMO, Massive MIMO and
beam-tracking to make the greater bandwidth available in millimeter wave
spectrum commercially viable."

5G performance will benefit consumers, business users and entire industries.
The multi-Gbps speeds delivered by the Ericsson 5G Radio Prototypes can not
only support growing mobile broadband and video demand on smartphones and
other mobile devices, they also provide a viable and cost effective
alternative to residential fiber connections. 5G will also impact the
Internet of Things (IoT), enabling new applications for smart vehicles and
transport architecture, remote control of heavy machinery in hazardous
environments, remote surgery and new levels of human-IoT interaction
including immersive augmented reality and immersive gaming.

The development of 5G will encompass an evolution of today's Long Term
Evolution (LTE) and the addition of new radio access technologies, often in
higher frequencies. These higher frequencies have a shorter transmission
range than current cellular networks and are prone to attenuation from
foliage and weather-related factors, which can impact performance and
reliability.

Ericsson 5G Radio Prototypes use Multi-User MIMO to transmit data to several
user devices using the same time and frequency resources, thus increasing the
system's spectral efficiency. Massive MIMO - the combination of MIMO and
beamforming with a large number of antenna elements - improves both
throughput and energy efficiency. With beam tracking, the Ericsson 5G Radio
Prototypes track the position and movements of a given device and point one
or more beams in the best direction for that device in real-time, to ensure
consistently reliable connections. These beams can come from multiple
transmission points.

5G will impact the entire mobile network and associated eco-system, from
devices to radio access, core and into the cloud. Ericsson 5G Radio
Prototypes are radio access products that can be installed indoors or
outside, enabling operators to field trial 5G services in their own network
environments. Ericsson 5G Radio Prototypes leverage the technology
innovations enabled by the lab-testing and live outdoor and indoor testing
from phase one of the award-winning Ericsson Radio Test Bed, already deployed
in Japan, Korea, the US and Sweden.

Ericsson and its leading operator customers, including NTT DOCOMO and KT, are
leading and driving the 5G standards work from pre-standard field trials
through standardization activities along with influential standards bodies
and industry.

Ericsson at Mobile World Congress 2016

During Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona, Ericsson will showcase its
unique industry insights, the latest innovation and inspirational discussions
that enable powerful new business opportunities. We are in the midst of the
societal transformation we call the Networked Society: a society in which
mobility, broadband and cloud empower every person and every industry to
reach their full potential. Opportunity is everywhere, and companies are
transforming according to the role they have chosen to play in the value
chains and ecosystems of the Networked Society.

Join us in our Hall (Hall 2, Stand 2N60) to learn about 5G, the Internet of
Things and cloud, and to discuss the impact digital transformation can have
on people, business and society.
