In this video, Jan Häglund, Head of Product Area IP & Broadband talks in detail about Ericsson's three new commitments to it's 4G IP portfolio; the Ericsson SNP 4000 4th generation Smart Network Processor, the Ericsson IP Operating System, and Service Provide SDN.
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.
IPv6 is a reality. Network technologies, services and support systems are ready for it, with IPv6 device support widely available and operators already deploying IPv6 in their networks.
The evolution to denser radio-access networks with small cells in cluttered urban environments has introduced new challenges for microwave backhaul. A direct line of sight does not always exist between nodes, and this creates a need for near- and non-line-of-sight (NLOS) microwave backhaul.
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. With its beginnings in data-center technology, software-defined networking (SDN) technology has developed to the point where it can offer significant opportunities to service providers.
