CTO's editorial for latest article

5G and the Internet of Things (IoT) represent major growth opportunities for communication service providers (CSPs) in the near future. However, the ability to support emerging use cases in these areas requires business support systems (BSS) that can handle complex business situations and optimize outcomes with minimal manual intervention. Artificial intelligence (AI) is the obvious answer, but adding it on to existing BSS here and there is not sufficient.

The latest Ericsson Technology Review article argues in favor of architectural changes to traditional BSS that would allow it to become ‘AI native’. One of the key differences between traditional BSS and AI-native BSS is the fact that the latter enables the various applications within the BSS to share business information with each other in an efficient and secure manner – a critical capability in the emerging 5G-IoT world.

The latest cellular communication technologies LTE-M and NB-IoT enable the introduction of a new generation of IoT devices that deliver on the promise of scalable, cost-effective massive IoT applications using LPWAN technology. However, a few key technology choices are necessary to create IoT devices that can support the multitude of existing and emerging massive IoT use cases.

Simplifying the 5G ecosystem by reducing architecture options

November 30, 2018

Previous mobile generations have taught us that industry efforts to reduce fragmentation yield massive benefits. In the case of 5G, an industry effort to focus deployment on a limited set of key connectivity options will be critical to bringing it to market in a timely and cost-efficient way.
