Ericsson this week revealed it will invest an additional $50 million to expand its four-year-old 5G Smart Factory in Lewisville, Texas, an investment which  "will further accelerate local production to address the demand for 5G infrastructure made in the USA, compliant with the Build America Buy America Act (BABAA)."

“This 5G Smart Factory ensures we are working closely to secure fast and agile deliveries to meet US customer requirements, and it has been exciting to see the growth and innovation of our state-of-the-art facility in just a few short years,” said Yossi Cohen, president and head of Ericsson North America.

“With this expansion, we can accelerate the production of Ericsson’s advanced Massive MIMO radios and our latest RAN Compute platform, all proudly made in the USA, addressing the evolving demands of our US customers and reinforcing our commitment to technological leadership.”
