Fixed Broadband and Convergence

Ericsson is leading the evolution toward the 4th generation of IP networks that will help enable the Networked Society and a world of more than 50 billion connected devices by 2020. By being scalable, smart, simple, and by offering superior performance, these networks will meet future demands related to mobile broadband, video traffic and the cloud.

4th-generation networks will also help enable operators to monetize broadband by differentiating video and cloud over-the-top traffic and services to consumer and enterprise customers. The increasing traffic will be managed by new packet-based backhaul and transport solutions.

Put simply: 4th-generation IP networks will help operators to meet future needs.
