Ericsson is partnering with Australian mobile broadband operator Telstra for the development of 5G standards and technologies to be used by mobile network operators.

As part of the collaboration, teams from both companies will work together to understand and fulfill the needs of advanced operators including Telstra.

Ericsson and Telstra will run a ‘Proof of Concept’ for ‘Machine Type Communications’, which is a key component for Internet of Things (IoT) to reduce current device limitations like range, battery life and size.

Telstra is also planning to conduct 5G field trials in Australia, which will allow company partners and customers to gain firsthand experience of 5G internet.

Telstra Networks group managing director said, "While a 5G world is some time away, it is important to begin key foundational work now to help us to better understand this emerging new technology and what it can do for customers across Australia and the world.

"For Telstra, 5G will be an evolution of our world leading 4G network, and we are keen to work together with our network partner Ericsson to drive the standards, test new concepts and research the new architectures."

Ericsson Australia head Håkan Eriksson said: "Delivering the benefits of 5G requires an end-to-end approach that includes devices, RAN and core networks.
