The collaboration is tapping into both companies’ strengths in innovation and technology, as well as understanding of how ICT, digitalization and connectivity impact consumer, business and society, Teliasonera said in a press release.
The partnership will bring 5G services to customers in 2018 by combining the Teliasonera network with Ericsson technology.
“Stockholm and Tallinn are two of the most connected cities in the world and now we’ll take them to the next level. 5G will create completely new innovations, ecosystems and great services to our customers,”
Johan Dennelind, president and CEO of Teliasonera, said.
“More and more industries tap into the value of digitalization and connectivity. 5G will amplify that as it is designed to be the industrial internet. It will not only be built for consumers, but also for digitalization of industries and the Internet of Things,”
Hans Vestberg, president and CEO of Ericsson, said.
Eesti Telekom, which is how the Teliasonera subsidiary in Estonia was called at the time, said at the beginning of last year that the first tests of 5G will be conducted in the second half of 2016.
