Connectivity for every young person is the goal
Mapping the connectivity landscape is a critical first step towards connecting every school to the internet and providing each child with access to learning opportunities.
Ericsson partners with UNICEF to help identify connectivity gaps in 35 countries.
Ericsson and UNICEF will work together to help map school connectivity globally by the end of 2023. Through our expertise in ICT we will help to provide an understanding of where connectivity is needed the most. We’ll develop a solution that supports the Giga initiative through the collection, validation, analysis, monitoring and visualization of real-time school connectivity data.
Ericsson’s contribution to mapping school connectivity

Our global partnership is part of the Giga initiative which aims to connect every school and child to the Internet.
The goal is for every young person to have access to information and opportunity—positively shaping this generation of school children and many more to come.
Ericsson’s deep knowledge in communications technology and engagement with mobile network operators will be crucial to the project’s success and help realize a shared vision of accessible, resilient connectivity. We will use our deep radio and networking domain expertise to analyze mobile network coverage data and extract valuable insights to build intelligent, automated systems that amplify the potential for connectivity in schools.
