“In the wireless industry, we have together built the world’s most successful and widespread technology platform with 7 billion subscribers, spread all over the globe. Now it is time to mobilize and digitalize the rest of the industries.” That was one of the concluding remarks Erik Ekudden made at the Johannesberg Summit in his opening keynote presentation.

The increasing use of software in all aspects of our lives, e.g. banking, commerce, vehicles, health care and so on, makes software security an extremely important issue not only for IT systems but for the overall security of our lives. Continue reading
SDN was the main keyword when it came to optical networks and their control at the OFC 2015. Orchestrating resources across multiple layers and domains—as an important next step in introducing SDN to the networks—is specifically worth highlighting. In other words, multi-layer/multi-domain orchestration seems to have emerged as a major added value of SDN to the networks.
At the conference, we presented details behind our SDN-based multi-domain orchestration demonstrator as a Post-deadline paper. Continue reading
Our 30 month project is wrapping up, and a lot has been achieved! One of the most important outcomes is the METIS 5G System Concept, which has been developed to meet the requirements of the beyond-2020 connected information society. Based on detailed evaluations, we can conclude that the technical objectives of our project have indeed been met. Continue reading
The Internet of Things and the Networked Society, with billions of devices connected and generating data, implies massive numbers of data sources and analytics receivers distributed across the globe. This is translated into a scenario where data will literally come from everywhere. At the device level, this may not seem to be a problem. However, if we step out and analyze the impact of the “massively” distributed scenario, we find that the existing analytics architectures and algorithms need to evolve to fulfil its requirements.

Innovations are what the future is built on. The ability to develop an idea from opportunity into a thriving commercial offering is vital for technology companies if they want to stay competitive. Ericsson Research has created the Ericsson Garage to improve our capability to develop innovative ideas. Continue reading
Industrial process automation and remote surgery are examples of use cases that will be possible in future 5G systems. We call them mission-critical machine type communication use cases and they require communication with very high reliability and availability, as well as very low end-to-end latency. We can show that it is feasible to design a 5G radio interface which is capable of providing this. Continue reading
As the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes a reality, large numbers of very heterogeneous devices will have to be managed. How can this be done in the most efficient way? Continue reading
In the Internet of Things, the physical device is the actual “thing” that is connected, but the value of the concept comes from the applications in the cloud that analyze and utilize the information from a range of devices. What is the best way to process IoT data to use it for real world actuation?
