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.
Sue Rudd, Director Service Provider Analysis, Strategy Analytics, explains how with SDN we can now virtualize the network across both the cloud and the access end-to-end.
An introduction to Microwave Communications, describing microwave radio links and how they are used. For the last decades, microwave links have been massively deployed in mobile networks, and now there is an increasing interest in microwave for other applications as well. More and more people are seeing the advantage of quick and cost efficient network roll-out that microwave communication offers.
Rising subscriber expectations, a fast-evolving commercial landscape, and exponential growth in data traffic. How can operators benefit as we move towards the Networked Society?
Don McCullough, Director, Strategic Communications, Group Function Technology, Ericsson explains how operators can benefit from software defined networks.
Telstra and Ericsson have successfully conducted the first trial of 1Tbps technology in Australia over 995km of its existing optical fiber network between Sydney and Melbourne.
Ericsson’s 4th Generation IP portfolio just got even better, with a powerful in-house ASIC, the Ericsson SNP 4000 network processing chipset, and extension of the Ericsson IP Operating System as the common platform across the entire IP portfolio.
In early February, Ericsson passed a significant milestone by signing its 100th Evolved Packet Core (EPC) contract – an industry-leading achievement – as operators continue to invest in LTE.
Microwave links are the freeways of the modern mobile-broadband network. Jonas Hansryd from Ericsson Research discusses how microwave backhaul can handle the demands for increased capacity.
50 billion connected devices, changing business models and user demands will all play a role in shaping tomorrow’s networks. Here’s our vision of 4th generation IP.
Ericsson’s Martin Mellor discusses how operators can manage the growth of OTT video profitably.
An architecture based on Software-Defined Networking (SDN) techniques gives operators greater freedom to balance operational and business parameters, such as network resilience, service performance and QoE against opex and capex.
Ericsson’s cloud offering delivers distributed cloud capabilities that enable a better user experience for cloud applications, and more efficient utilization of network resource.
