    Tech Talk

    For those interested in technologies, they give an overview and also we present our thoughts on what may happen in the future.

    How can the next LTE release help meet the growing need for more capacity and higher data rates? Stefan Parkvall, Principal Researcher at Ericsson, shows us in this Tech Talk video.

    Research Topics

    In this section you will find discourse from selected ongoing research activities at Ericsson. All content on this site is in the early stage of research with limited functionality. You are invited to provide comments or ask questions in the comments fields.

    5G

    5G

    The limit for future services will be the performance of the networks. Functionality and capabilities of the networks will decide what is possible. For those of us working with the future communication networks, this brings exciting challenges.

    LTE

    LTE

    LTE is the technology behind 4G, that delivers mobile broadband to millions of users all over the globe. We believe that LTE will continue to develop yet for many years. LTE will continue to be the main standard for mobile broadband and it will also be a very important component in the future 5G systems.

    Context aware communication

    Context aware communication

    The Internet is changing the communication landscape dramatically. Communication technologies of the future need to be flexible enough to be able to integrate into new contexts, while offering superior media quality comparable to "being there".

    Media Coding

    Media Coding

    Ericsson is one of the main drivers for the development of a new video standard that will maintain the quality the codec used today while cutting bitrate in half. We are also active with a new codec for voice in 4G that will outperform current ones both in terms of efficiency and quality.

    Data & Knowledge

    Data & Knowledge

    Data & Knowledge. The terms are two sides of the same coin. From data, we can derive knowledge and without data there will be no knowledge. Data marks our starting point and knowledge is where we want to end up. Join us as we explore the steps of handling data, doing analytics and creating Insights.

    Security

    Security

    Mobile and fixed networks that are used for connecting devices and users to services need to be reliable and clouds must safeguard data for users and enterprises.

    Internet of Things

    Internet of Things

    The Internet of Things will be a major cornerstone of an emerging Networked Society. Our research looks at the kinds of architectures, technologies and ecosystems needed to create an the Internet of Things. Follow us as we share our research results and experience in building and deploying exciting prototypes to make IoT a reality.

    User Experience

    User Experience

    ICT from a human perspective; creative explorations, ideas, artefacts, strategies and concepts related to ICT-enabled user interactions with small things, large complex systems and society.
