Build your Cloud Infrastructure

The future of digital is now - ready for 5G

Cloud Infrastructure ready for 5G

How can service providers best build an open telco cloud infrastructure for 5G to introduce services quickly with low risk? And how can infrastructure be evolved to support cloud native applications and edge computing for new business opportunities?

Ericsson provides a market leading, standards based telco cloud infrastructure for service providers. The foundation is a system-verified infrastructure solution enabling short time to market for new services and low total cost of ownership. Ericsson Cloud Infrastructure uses products based on open source software and open interfaces with support for virtual machines, containers, edge computing and several third party options in the hardware infrastructure level.

As service providers increasingly adopt NFV, they face the critical challenge of validating and certifying virtual network functions (VNFs) from a multitude of suppliers. VNFs need to be validated for initial onboarding and frequently re-validated to keep up with the pace of infrastructure innovation. Ericsson Partner VNF certification program provides continuous validation to keep track of updates, a standardized testing framework, and a market place portal.

Ericsson has more than 155 cloud infrastructure customers across the world including leading service providers such as Swisscom, Telefónica, Telstra, DOCOMO and Telkomsel. More than 110 service providers are using our cloud infrastructure in commercial operation.
