Cloud and virtualization have been on the telecom industry’s agenda for a few years now. Ericsson sees great opportunities in the technology and has launched the Ericsson Cloud System to explore these.
Using a network-enabled structure, Ericsson's Cloud System frees the cloud and enables a consistent service experience. Coupled with service provider software defined networking, Ericsson's Cloud System delivers compelling benefits for operators and network users.
Cloud-based services provide an opportunity for network operators to add value and improve the timeliness and quality with which they deliver enterprise services and applications – whether through more efficient telecom and internal IT services or value-added cloud services for consumers and enterprises. Cloud-based services also allow operators to ensure rapid service creation and rollout by delivering new levels of flexibility, scalability and responsiveness. This will satisfy growing user expectations for new innovative services with high QoE, while handling ever-increasing traffic loads.
At the Broadband World Forum 2013 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on October 22-24, Ericsson will share insights into and reflections on: service provider software-defined networking (SDN) and the cloud; 4G IP for mobility, video and the cloud; monetizing broadband with new business models; and more.
The banking and financial services industry needs to show flexibility and creativity to adjust to the relentless pace of change today, writes Kosta Peric – the deputy director of the “Financial Services for the Poor” initiative at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. There particularly needs to be a change in mindset, from capturing consumers to empowering them. And within that change, a mobile focus is a no-brainer, Peric writes, along with investments in social media and big data analytics.
In this Tech Talk, Mats Alendal, Director, Cloud Strategy Execution at Ericsson explains the impact that networked enabled cloud will have in the future.
