Enabling the Networked Society

At Ericsson, we strive to connect everyone, wherever they may be. Because by being connected, people can take part in the emerging global collaboration that is the Networked Society -€“ a society in which every person and every industry is empowered to reach their full potential.

Our services, software and infrastructure - especially in mobility, broadband and the cloud - are enabling the communications industry and other sectors to do better business, increase efficiency, improve their users' experience and capture new opportunities.

By enabling the Networked Society, we make a real difference to people'€™s lives, and the world we live in.
