Few ICT topics are currently hotter than 5G. But what could 5G actually mean for users, operators and other industry players? A critical examination of potential 5G scenarios, use cases and business models is urgently needed – along with a realistic assessment of the complications that may just have 5G’s number.
Meet our experts to see how they reinvent operations models. Operational excellence is achieved by aligning business needs with operational processes, technology- and organization design best-practices.
Operators are extremely dependent on manual interactions within their network operation processes. Meet our experts to learn how can they easily correlate events and automate them.
The explosive growth of smartphones and app usage bring new challenges to mobile operators. App coverage is an approach to meet those challenges by translating users’ expectations into network performance targets.
As smartphones and tablets became the access devices of choice, mobile user behavior has undergone a fundamental shift from being predominantly voice-centric to data-centric – or, more accurately, app-centric. To provide for this, operators need new ways to assess performance and the quality of the user experience that enables operators to build and manage their networks in the most efficient, targeted and profitable way.
The introduction of smart meters and smart grid sensors demands a cost-effective and easily deployed communications solution. Laboratory and field tests have demonstrated that LTE networks successfully meet the technical requirements for smart grid communications.
Operators can continue to improve the relevance of their networks by adopting an architecture customized for innovation.
Ericsson and other major Operations Support Systems (OSS) providers, are taking the lead on OSS interoperability with a new initiative to enable the use of vendors’ OSS interfaces outside of those defined by standards organizations. To help operators simplify network operations and reduce costs, the companies have agreed to cross-license such OSS interfaces for multi-vendor network management.
