Ericsson's core technology for TIM's 5G standalone network

  • Ericsson's dual-mode 5G Core evolves the existing 'Evolved Packet Core' and introduces the new 5G Standalone into a single cloud-native solution
  • 5G Standalone will enable faster data transfer speeds, reduced latency and increased coverage
  • The agreement also includes network orchestration and automation services, enabling network slicing

Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) has been chosen by TIM to provide its 5G Core. Ericsson's dual-mode 5G Core will allow TIM to modernise its current "Evolved Packet Core" and introduce the new 5G Standalone in a single cloud-native solution.

The transition to 5G Standalone is a crucial step in the continued expansion of TIM's 5G infrastructure with higher data transfer rates, ultra-low latency and increasingly nationwide equipment deployment.

The agreement also includes network orchestration and automation services, which underpin the introduction of ultra-reliable, low-latency network slicing and communications (URLLC) solutions. A key step that will enable the rapid introduction of new services for consumers and businesses.

Andrea Missori, President of Ericsson Italy, says: "This new partnership with TIM will allow to take full advantage of 5G, benefitting both consumers and businesses, and will contribute to accelerate the country's digital transformation. With 5G standalone it will be possible to activate a series of innovative services that require high performance, low latency and maximum security, as well as the network slicing functionality that will allow mobile operators to monetise network quality."
