(Reuters) - Swedish telecoms equipment supplier Ericsson said on Wednesday it plans to build its first fully-automated factory in the United States to make radios required to deploy 5G technology and make it operational in early next year.

The company said it would decide on a location after discussions with state and local authorities in the United States.

Ericsson has a research and development site - a software development center – in Austin, Texas.
