Ericsson to deliver mission-critical communications to UN peacekeepers
 
  • Ericsson to provide UN peacekeeping missions with Private LTE networks 
  • Advanced mission-critical mobile broadband technologies enabling unrivalled situational awareness for peacekeepers during operations
  • First live UN Private LTE networks expected up and running in 2019
Dubai, UAE, October 30, 2018:  The United Nations has selected Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) to supply peacekeeping missions around the globe with their own LTE networks providing mission-critical communications capabilities. 
 
Alongside the partner Danoffice IT ApS, Ericsson will lead the implementation of mission-critical LTE networking equipment as well as professional services and training. The LTE networking equipment is from the 5G-ready Ericsson Radio System portfolio, including the MINI-LINK microwave backhaul solution, in combination with Ericsson Cloud Packet Core.
 
This LTE network will significantly improve existing communications by providing stable, secure, and future-proof mobile broadband services for peacekeeping troops, often operating in tough geographical terrain and conditions. Together with the latest mission-critical push-to-talk, data and video capabilities, specifically designed for professional use, communications will be enriched to embody the full multimedia experience.
 
Currently there are 14 peacekeeping operations around the world led by the UN. These missions typically have permission to use radio spectrum for planning, coordination and implementation of their activities. The first live UN Private LTE networks are expected to be up and running in 2019.
 
By standardizing their communications in this way, the UN ensures peacekeeping troops will have the latest communications systems as well as a cost-effective way to add new digital broadband services, such as HD video for real-time situational awareness, mobile positioning and cellular Internet of Things (IoT), including asset management and connected logistics solutions. 
 
Helena Norrman, Senior Vice President and Head of Group Function Marketing & Corporate Relations, Ericsson says: “The digitalization through broadband that is driving so much development for business and society also has great potential in peacebuilding and humanitarian response. We are proud to now be a supplier to the UN system providing communications capabilities that are crucial to their important work.”
