Ericsson and global operator Telefónica have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the development of 5G technologies, products and services. The two companies will jointly support ongoing and new initiatives that will boost the development of 5G technologies and the entrepreneurial environment in which they can evolve, with specific focus on the 5G PPP and ETP Networld 2020 programs, promoted by the European Commission within the Horizon 2020 program.
This partnership has already begun, with one example in the recent creation of the first 5G laboratory of excellence by Telefónica (through its innovation unit, Telefónica I+D) and IMDEA Networks Institute in Spain. The laboratory, 5TONIC, is intended to create an open ecosystem for innovation and research. Ericsson is the first manufacturer to join the initiative as part of its 5G for Europe program.
Lattice Semiconductor Corporation, a provider of customizable smart connectivity solutions, announced availability of the company’s new baseband processor. The SB6541 is designed for use in conjunction with Lattice’s Sil6340 and SiI6342 RF transceivers to target fixed wireless access and wireless backhaul of urban broadband infrastructure such as LTE small cells and metro Wi-Fi access points.
