Ericsson Introduces Three-Sector Radio For Efficient Site Upgrades And Capacity Boost

Share This



Ericsson has launched Radio 6626, a unique three-sector dual-band radio to help service providers increase their Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) 5G frequency capacity, even as their site towers are already occupied with legacy radios for 2G, 3G and 4G.


The latest addition to Ericsson's radio portfolio will provide multi-standard and multi-band coverage while bringing down costs and reducing footprint – up to 50 percent lower energy consumption.

The three-sector dual-band Radio 6626 combines two frequencies and six ports in one unit, enabling one radio to power all three sectors on the tower. This 6T6R radio supports 2G to 5G mobile standards. Available on 900 MHZ and 800 MHZ dual-band version as well as 1800 MHZ and 2100 MHZ dual band, Radio 6626 will arm service providers with added support to boost capacity while addressing cost-related challenges.

Powered by Ericsson Silicon, Ericsson Radio 6626 can provide 720W of output power and weighs under 45kg.

The new product's efficiency is driven by tight hardware and software co-design.

Ericsson is also launching the Voltage Booster 6640, which minimizes the need for new cabling, as it expands the power capacity to the radios by up to 50 percent while re-using existing cables. By adding the Voltage Booster rather than swapping cables, the service provider can save up to 70 percent of hardware and installation costs.



The end-to-end offering also includes:


· Baseband 6631, which presents the latest multi-standard RAN Compute pathway for towers that run multiple technologies from 2G to 5G


· Microwave-based MINI-LINK 6352, which adds up to 10Gbps with E-band, aggregating with existing microwave radios. The multi-band booster design increases backhaul capacity with zero footprint and reduced OPEX


The new products complement the recently launched ultra-light Massive MIMO and RAN Compute portfolios – aimed at making it easier for service providers to roll out commercial 5G services.
