We are on the brink of an extraordinary revolution that will change our world forever.
In this new world everyone, everything and everywhere will be connected in real time. We envision that by 2020, there will be more than 50 billion connected devices. We call this the Networked Society, and it will fundamentally change the way we innovate, collaborate, produce, govern and achieve sustainability.
The Networked Society is about new methods of collaborating, sharing and getting informed. It’s about innovative ways of doing business that will create efficiencies in the public and private sectors. And ultimately it’s about new approaches to resolving some of the greatest challenges facing our planet.

Learning and education
As technology continues to transform our society, those responsible for our current systems of learning and education are facing overwhelming pressure to adapt.
Education technology, connected learning and the rise of the Networked Society are transforming the established concept of learning, teachers’ roles and even the nature of knowledge itself.
The voice of the consumer
Ericsson ConsumerLab has more than 15 years’ experience of studying people’s behaviors and values, including the way they act and think about ICT products and services. Ericsson ConsumerLab provides unique insights on market and consumer trends.
Ericsson ConsumerLab reports:
Today, more people live in cities than in rural areas, and by 2050, about 70 percent of the world’s population is expected to reside in urban areas.
By transforming our cities, we can improve the lives of billions of people along with the health and future of the planet itself.
In the Networked Society, Ericsson will be the leading advocate of Technology for Good. By using broadband to address poverty, human rights, climate change and other challenges, we want to ensure our technology is a force for lasting, positive change.
