DISH selects Ericsson for NB-IoT radio access and core network
“DISH is in the unique position of building a greenfield network, starting with NB-IoT, with a clear path to 5G,” said Niklas Heuveldop, President and Head of Ericsson North America. “We are excited that DISH has decided to partner with Ericsson to address the IoT opportunity. We believe that NB-IoT holds great potential for both consumers and businesses across the U.S.”
Ericsson and DISH Network have validated NB-IoT data transmissions based on the 3GPP standards, including, for the first time in the United States, extended range connections up to 100km from a base station.
