Ericsson Spectrum Sharing software
To support commercially available smartphones, Ericsson and Swisscom have switched on the first large-scale commercial 5G network in Europe.

Swisscom previously announced its aim to have its 5G network operational all over Switzerland by the end of 2019 – with close to 90 percent nationwide population coverage. This will be achieved by using Ericsson Spectrum Sharing software that dynamically shares spectrum between 4G and 5G carriers based on traffic demand. This will enable fast nationwide 5G coverage with 5G-ready 4G radios.

Ericsson Spectrum Sharing software, available on Ericsson Radio System products, is based on unique intelligent scheduler algorithms that enable users to intelligently, flexibly and quickly introduce and add 5G within existing 4G carriers, e.g., introduce 5G on low/mid bands for wide area coverage and outside in coverage.

The software dynamically shares spectrum between 4G and 5G carriers based on traffic demand. The switch between carriers happens within milliseconds, which minimizes spectrum wastage and allows for best end-user performance.
