The 3 units of the R&D center


Security is a key area of the R&D center. We will work on all aspects related to this subject. In this domain, we will work on standardization, having close cooperation with our customers and the whole security eco-system to understand their challenges and demands in more detail, and conduct penetration testing and vulnerability analysis.


Reliability, availability and manageability are the cornerstones of our second area, Serviceability. In this domain we will have java software developers working with tools that are used for example with roll out of 5G systems. We are working in an agile way together with other Ericsson’s R&D development teams globally.
