Is a connected commute a more pleasant one?

The inefficiency of people’s daily commute regularly features as one of the major issues facing cities worldwide. Traffic congestion and commuting inefficiencies not only cause environmental, social and economic problems; on a personal level it is also one of the most unpleasant urban experiences and a key source of stress.

Small cell deployments: global urban use-cases uncovered

When talking about the need for small cells, the deployment use-cases are often simplified to a few categories and decoupled from the business problems that need to be solved. The business value of small-cell deployments is easy to articulate on a high level – it includes both universal coverage and capacity – but can vary [...]

The future of shopping: an In-Liner’s view

I must admit that when I first saw the headline “In-Line Shopping” on the latest ConsumerLab report, I thought of Rollerblades and assumed they were back in fashion. After reading the report I realized it was about something completely different. In-Liners mix traditional in-store shopping and online shopping without even thinking about it – [...]

Shared mobility in Paris

Network performance is the most important criteria considered when purchasing broadband services. Coverage and capacity have traditionally been the main factors for measuring this performance, but now this is not enough. New requirements for Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE), premium data and video over mobile broadband are also becoming vital network design criteria.

Redefining the economic value

In recent years, big business has caused a number of social, environmental and economic problems. We have seen its effects on health-care systems, the environment, the mortgage crisis and so on. Profit maximization by companies has often been perceived as positive, but there is an increasing belief that this profit is made at the expense [...]

Dare to be disruptive

It is the second day of SIME Stockholm and “disruptive” is the word of the day. Put simply: in a Networked Society where everybody has constant access to knowledge and a “like/dislike” button, entrepreneurs, investors, larger companies and HR departments need to embrace a new way of thinking. And eventually find new ways of being [...]

Entrepreneurial thoughts at SIME Stockholm

Today and tomorrow, I’m taking part in SIME Stockholm, where a lot of interesting people have gathered – visionaries, thinkers, some of the best brains representing various industries, who have one thing in common: they believe that innovation is important. Many also share the belief that innovation today is closely linked to the development of [...]
