It also will make Advanced Antenna System radios that it said are components for large-scale deployments of 4G and 5G networks. 5G, the next generation of cellular technology, offers faster speeds and lower latency between devices.
The factory will produce 5G radios, the element in phones and other devices that sends and receives the 5G signal, for use in urban areas.
"Building 5G equipment in the United States is good for our economy, good for the supply chain, and good for the rapid rollout of the next generation of wireless connectivity in the United States," he said.
Ericsson pledged last year to invest in the "accelerated build out of 5G" in the United States.
