Three Ericsson employees who submitted in all 275 patents within radio technology have been named “Inventors of the Year.” It is the 17th consecutive year that Ericsson puts the spotlight on individuals with exceptional ideas and contributions to the company’s industry-leading patent portfolio.
As we move toward the Networked Society, operators the world over are turning toward LTE to meet the demands of users in an all-connected world. A recent five-part Ericsson article series, which takes a closer look at LTE-related subjects of interest to operators, has been packaged into a handy brochure called "LTE: A global success story."
The last article in our series on LTE focuses on Ericsson’s dedication to continual development of the technology through research and development, consumer understanding, standardization, and working directly with customers to meet specific needs.
The new Chairman of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) Board, Jonas Sundborg, says delivering on strategic objectives will be a key focus during his tenure.
Time-division LTE (TD-LTE) represents China’s bid to take a global leadership role in 4G. However, TD-LTE is not only of interest to the Chinese. Other countries are also in the mix.
Is LTE destined to be the first, truly global standard? Today’s uptake suggests yes.
Skype was no mistake. Niklas Zennström and his partner Janus Friis did not stumble upon success with their peer-to-peer telephony giant. They had a vision.
Traditional telephony is different from internet services in general. Telephony is a standardized mass market service that is heavily regulated and regarded as a community service – associated with trust and quality of service. Two of the fundamental concepts in any communica- tion service are Find and Connect.
Legacy telephony will continue to grow for traditional operators even though telephony in general will evolve into a converged service and a base for more advanced services. These services will either be based on the new standards for telephony or embrace unstandardized web-based services from the internet. We will probably see different approaches from operators on how to enrich legacy telephony with new attractive services, in order to counteract the threat from over-the-top internet players.
