Mark Haranas

From Cisco and Samsung to Ericsson and Huawei, here’s the ten market leaders who made Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for 5G Network Infrastructure for Communication Service Providers.

Leader: Ericsson

Ericsson won the gold medal for execution on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant, besting all other competitors in the global market, while also ranking second for vision. The Swedish networking and telecommunications company offers services, software and infrastructure in information and communications technology for CSPs. Ericson’s end-to-end 5G offerings includes its Ericsson Radio System, 5G Core, Orchestration and 5G Transport along with top notch professional services.

Strengths: Gartner says Ericsson possesses the largest number of 5G deals. Its leadership in the 5G technology evolution, with improvements such as dynamic spectrum sharing (DSS) and Uplink Booster, gave the company a “first-mover advantage,” Gartner said.

Weaknesses: Ericsson has a narrower radio unit portfolio and slower feature support than some competitors, Gartner said. This includes the number of massive MIMO products, IBW 400 MHz massive MIMO and 5G microcell.
