Vodafone Ireland has launched the first commercial 5G network in Ireland across locations in Cork, Limerick, Dublin, Galway and Waterford.
Using Baseband 6630 and AIR 6488 products from the Ericsson Radio System portfolio, Vodafone Ireland has activated the network over their recently acquired 5G spectrum.
At the launch, John Griffin, Managing Director, Ericsson Ireland said, “We work closely with our customers to be at the forefront of technology and we were the first to support the launch every generation of mobile technology in Ireland. We are therefore proud to support the first 5G launch, too.”
Speaking at the launch event, Anne O’Leary, CEO, Vodafone Ireland said, “5G is set to revolutionize how we use and adopt technology and will have a huge impact on businesses and society in Ireland. It will bring high speed, ultra-low latency and highly secure connectivity to a massive amount of devices; and is a technology that will unlock a vast array of new use cases through Vodafone’s next-generation network.”
