Ericsson chosen to provide 5G RAN for HT in Croatia

24 Jun 2020

Croatian fixed and mobile operator Hrvatski Telekom (HT) has selected Ericsson as its sole 5G RAN supplier under a contract which runs until 2024. The deployment, which will be carried out by Ericsson’s local subsidiary, Ericsson Nikola Tesla, includes Ericsson Radio System products and solutions and Ericsson Spectrum Sharing.

Kostas Nebis, CEO of HT, says: ‘5G technology implementation is applicable on a broad scale and resonates with Croatia’s needs, such as enabling higher energy efficiencies through smart metering and dynamic management of power supply, higher efficiency in agriculture through connected and automated devices and machinery, or optimisation of irrigation processes, as well as in a variety of other industries.’

TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database notes that HT is the largest cellco in Croatia by subscribers, with over 45% of all users at the end of March 2020.
