Cork, Limerick, Dublin, Galway and Waterford have gone live with commercial 5G following a roll out by Vodafone Ireland in partnership with Ericsson.
Vodafone will expand the network to other locations in Ireland over the coming months.
Vodafone’s new 5G network consists of fully standardised Ericsson 5G, which is being deployed over Vodafone Ireland’s recently acquired 5G spectrum.
Using Ericsson Radio System, the network will support other new technologies including AI, the IoT, connected cities and self-driving cars.
Vodafone also formed a partnership with the ASSERT Centre (Application of the Science of Simulation to Education, Research and Medical Technology) in University College Cork (UCC), making it the first 5G connected telemedicine and medical robotics training centre in the world.
