Customer-centric technology innovation


"State of the Art" software development and technologies

Cloud-native application design has become a standard practice in the telecom industry, due to the major efficiency gains it can provide, particularly in terms of speeding up software deployments of new features. We at Eurolab have actively explored the potential of cloud-native computing in the telecom industry, as well as joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) a few years ago.

Microservices form – as in many other scenarios – the building blocks of a cloud-native application. These microelements are characterized by a wide reuse in various products, some are even mandatory, so that the same “look and feel” and a common north bound interface (NBI) are delivered to customers.

Software Development and Technologies
SW development and technologies
Inner Source

Every microservice is meant to be used by multiple applications and shall be open to collaboration. Developers can contribute to an existing service, to fix bugs or to implement new features.

Open source

The open-source community projects are Software (SW) projects towards which Ericsson has regular contribution activities. Those contributors are closely linked to the development teams of Ericsson and work on a commonly defined purpose.
