Technology thought leadership
Join the fast lane with the CTO Focus Sessions hosted by Erik Ekudden, Ericsson’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO), discussing the transformative power of 5G with key industry players.
Enterprise digital transformation powered by 5G and AI
In this session Erik Ekudden and Juergen Mueller CTO and Member of the Executive Board of SAP discuss how enterprises across all sectors are undergoing a digital transformation and the role that 5G and Artificial Intelligence (AI) play as key enablers in the digitalization. They emphasize the importance of real-time data collection and processing for organizations aspiring to become data-driven enterprises. This highlights the increasing demand for high-performance 5G connectivity and 5G capabilities exposed through open network APIs (Application Programming Interface) to developers. Another focal point of their discussion revolves around how AI and Machine Learning plays a crucial role in automating processes, enhancing customer experiences, optimizing operations and making data-driven decisions. Erik and Juergen highlight that partnerships are essential to unlock new digital business opportunities and together we are committed to support enterprises in their digital transformation journey.
How Enterprise digital transformation are powered by 5G and AI
In this session Ericsson’s CTO Erik Ekudden and Olivier Avaro, CEO of Blacknut discuss the future of mobile cloud gaming. To enhance application innovation the evolution of network developer interfaces through exposed and easy-to-use network functions are vital. Cloud gaming is a perfect case to demonstrate the potential of open network APIs, but is also relevant for other areas like productivity, communication, collaboration, and enhanced video. The APIs should be the same across different operators so they are simple to use for the developers and can be used at scale and not in limited geographies. They also need to be simple in terms of business model, and predictable from a costing perspective. This is where companies like Vonage (part of Ericsson) can truly support the ecosystem.
A new age of innovation: 5G and APIs
In this session Ericsson’s CTO Erik Ekudden and Vinod Lala Chief Strategy Officer at Vonage discusses the expanding Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) market and their joint journey in this globally. New use cases offer business opportunities that will enhance consumer and enterprise experiences through innovative services. This means good news for operators to be able to monetize already invested network capabilities through service exposure (API´s) and for developers to expand their toolkit for innovation with more scale and reach.
5G for Sustainable Transportation
In this session, Erik Ekudden is joined by Christian Levin, President and CEO at Scania Group where they discuss sustainable transportation and their joint commitment on combating climate change with new technology. The criticality of connectivity for Scania’s industry, electrification and digitalization are also explored. The need for collaboration across transport, energy and telecommunications has never been greater.
