Ericsson returns to GITEX Technology Week virtually this year as a Digital Transformation Partner. Ericsson will use its participation at the prestigious event to update customers, partners and the ICT industry with the latest 5G updates and insights from its global engagement and leadership.
To date, Ericsson has installed 70 live 5G networks around the world, spanning 36 different countries and the company has signed 117 commercial agreements around the world.
The latest Ericsson Mobility Report, released last month, estimates that by the end of 2020, more than 1 billion people – 15 percent of the world’s population – will live in an area that has 5G coverage rolled out. In 2026, 60 percent of the world’s population will have access to 5G coverage, with 5G subscriptions forecast to reach 3.5 billion, making the current 5G uptake in subscriptions and population coverage the fastest of any generation of mobile connectivity.
