Vodafone Ireland this week launched its 5G services in parts of five Irish cities - Cork, Dublin, Galway, Limerick and Waterford.

At the launch in Cork on 13 August, Ericsson presented their Mixed Reality (Urban Planning VR) Demo. It was also the launch of the Vodafone Global Center of Internet of Things excellence in healthcare in partnership with Assert.

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. This deployment marks one of many for Ericsson, who have 5G activations all over the world.

Anne O'Leary, CEO, Vodafone Ireland
5G 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.

John Griffin, MD of Ericsson Ireland
Ericsson has been investing in Ireland for 60 years. Our Research and Development centre in Athlone is still one of the biggest in the country, where they’re currently developing key components of 5G networks and firmly putting Ireland on the map of 5G innovation.
