Ericsson Radio Dot System & RBS 6402 Picocell Launched In India For Indoors Network Coverage

At Ericsson CONNECT event in New Delhi today, the Swedish company Ericsson has launched two new innovative product solutions to optimize indoor coverage – the Radio Dot System and the RBS6402 picocell. To address the challenges of ensuring high quality mobile voice and data services within buildings, Ericsson has introduced its innovative small cell portfolio in India.


Ericsson’s small cell portfolio comprises a full range of indoor and outdoor small cells and Carrier Wi-Fi access points including the Ericsson Radio Dot System and RBS 6402 picocell, both of which are compact, cost-effective solutions that enable operators to deliver high-performance network coverage and capacity indoors while allowing for faster deployment. With the Radio Dot System, the operators will be able to address a wide range of in-building environments with a common solution, including the underserved, high growth, medium-to-large building and venue category.

Optimized for indoor environments up to 5,000 square meters (roughly 54,000 square feet), RBS 6402 is the first picocell to support LTE speeds of up to 300 Mbps with carrier aggregation. Flexible and future proof, it’s the only multi-carrier, concurrent multi-standard  (LTE, WCDMA and Wi-Fi), and mixed-mode small cell to support 10 different bands, with two 3GPP bands (LTE and WCDMA) plus 802.11ac Wi-Fi operating simultaneously to deliver higher peak rates and capacity.

As part of the event, Ericsson also released a White Paper called “India 2020: Bringing the Networked Society to Life.” This paper highlights factors that will contribute towards creating a Digital India by 2020 and achieving the objectives and targets of the National Telecom Policy-2012 (NTP-2012) to extend the reach of broadband in the country.


Chris Houghton, Head of Region India, said on this occasion, “Broadband has the potential to help bring about inclusive growth in India by extending education, healthcare and financial inclusion to rural areas and lower income groups. In order to achieve and deliver on this vision, government and industry need to actively partner to tackle the constraints of limited spectrum availability, device affordability and network performance gaps indoors while at the same time meeting the pent-up demand for mobile broadband and stimulating interest in and uptake of services in new markets with new revenue models.”

On this occasion, Mikael Bäck, Global Head of Strategy Development & Portfolio Management, shared case studies to show how the Networked Society – widespread internet connectivity – is driving change for individuals and communities and enabling innovation and business transformation. He cited real life examples of goods tracking, connected cars, and e-learning as examples of how the Networked Society is coming alive in different parts of the world.

Ericsson’s vision of the Networked Society is based on the simple idea that real-time connectivity will fundamentally change the way we innovate, collaborate, produce, govern, and live sustainably. By providing new communication tools and access to global knowledge, the Networked Society will empower every person and every industry globally to reach their full potential.
