Ericsson has announced that it is planning to construct the company’s first fully-automated smart factory in the US.

This factory will manufacture Advanced Antenna System radios to enhance network capacity and coverage in the rural areas, along with 5G radios for urban areas.

Both areas are important for rapid 5G deployments in the North American region, the company noted.

Besides the US smart factory, Ericsson is also speeding up the launch of the next-generation smart manufacturing via a modular and flexible production setup in its existing own factories in Estonia, China and Brazil.

Fredrik Jejdling, executive VP and head of networks at Ericsson, says: “We continue to focus on working closely with our customers and supporting them in the buildout of 5G globally and in North America.

With today's announcement, we conclude months of preparations and can move into execution also in the US.
