To compete profitably in the fast-changing mobile broadband market, telecommunication operators need to fight the forces of commoditization.
Operators need to take a new approach to customer relationship management, whereby all customer interactions are performed in the context of the customer’s end-to-end experience.
IPv6 is a reality. Network technologies, services and support systems are ready for it, with IPv6 device support widely available and operators already deploying IPv6 in their networks.
WCDMA/HSPA enables hundreds of millions of people to access mobile broadband (MBB) through their smartphones every day as part of their daily lives. Today, new, low-priced WCDMA/HSPA smartphones are entering the market, and they will enable MBB for new hundreds-of-million-sized markets.
A holistic methodology is necessary for assessing the potential reductions of CO2e emissions. Life cycle assessment (LCA) is a well-established method and can be used for comparing emissions created in different scenarios.
The evolution of LTE is key to the realization of Ericsson’s vision of a Networked Society. This vision means that, in the future, anything that benefits from being connected will be connected – from parking meters and house alarms to cars and trash cans.
The GSMA IR.92 voice-over-LTE and GSMA IR.94 IMS conversational video specifications are the preferred industry choices for mass-market voice and video calling services over LTE, satisfying user expectations and providing the most advantageous solutions for operators. With the industry aligned telecom solution, operators can now start commercial deployments of a telecom-grade, globally interoperable solution for voice and video calling over LTE – even before LTE is fully deployed.
Customer experience is the foremost reason why operations and business support systems (OSS/BSS) have become a key area of investment for any communications services provider.
Building and expanding an LTE network does not usually happen overnight. It tends to be a gradual process where new cells and capacity are added in line with business and subscriber demand. Providing LTE, voice over LTE (VoLTE), and voice handover is a fundamental part of next-generation mobile networks, where voice handover to legacy systems is a key enabler while LTE coverage continues to be spotty.
