Juniper Networks (JNPR) said pre-market Wednesday that it has expanded its 18-year partnership with Ericsson (ERIC) to develop an end-to-end 5G solution leveraging each company’s complementary portfolios.

Juniper said that the extended partnership aims to offer service providers a total solution from radio to core for new-service delivery while managing mounting complexity. This tightly integrated solution will combine Juniper’s routing for next generation WAN services and IP transport, and Ericsson’s Router 6000 and MINI-LINK microwave portfolio for distributed, centralized and virtualized radio access. Moreover, the solution utilizes Juniper’s Unified Cybersecurity Platform to secure the entire 5G mobile infrastructure against sophisticated threats. It will also provide seamless connectivity from the radio cell site to the mobile core all unified under Ericsson’s management and orchestration solution.
