Ericsson’s Hungarian research and development department and the Hungarian team of professionals play a significant role in global 5G technological developments.
Ericsson Magyarország Kft. has developed a new 5G-based location service, the development received more than HUF 497 million in support from the National Research, Development and Innovation (NKFI) Fund.
The aim of the project was to develop new location services related to 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT). For this, a positioning software was developed that is suitable for determining the position of a significantly larger number of devices than at present, capable of determining this position with an accuracy of meters or even centimeters in some cases – all this in widely varying physical conditions, both indoors and outdoors.
The project was implemented by Ericsson Magyarország Kft. at its headquarters in Budapest, the total duration of the project was 42 months.
The support was received for the development of Ericsson’s mobile positioning system (MPS). The responsibility for product development was transferred to Ericsson Hungary, thereby creating new R&D jobs in the country.
The developments were made for Ericsson’s global product range, so with the spread of 5G technology, they can become part of the network established anywhere in the world in the coming years. Through these, Ericsson’s Hungarian research and development department and the Hungarian team of professionals take on a significant role in global 5G technological developments and can strengthen their position among the world’s major research and development departments.
The total amount of the awarded support is HUF 497,932,011.
