CTO's comments about the latest article

Creating the highly automated environment that network operators and digital service providers will need in the near future requires the support of intelligent agents that are able to work collaboratively. At Ericsson, we believe that the most effective way to create such intelligent agents is by combining machine reasoning and machine learning techniques.

The latest Ericsson Technology Review article explains the role that these two cognitive technologies play in the creation of intelligent agents that have a detailed semantic understanding of the world and their own individual contexts. It also includes two proofs of concept that help demonstrate how the combination of machine reasoning and machine learning techniques makes it possible to create intelligent agents that are able to learn from diverse inputs, and share or transfer experience between contexts.

Cognitive technologies in network and business automation

June 28, 2018

Forward-looking network operators and digital service providers require an automated network and business environment that can support them in the transition to a new market reality characterized by 5G, the Internet of Things, virtual network functions and software-defined networks. The combination of machine learning and machine reasoning techniques makes it possible to build cognitive applications with the ability to utilize insights across domain borders and dynamically adapt to changing goals and contexts.

Digital connectivity marketplaces to enrich 5G and IoT value propositions

May 30, 2018

One of the key growth opportunities for the telecom industry is to provide network capabilities that support the digital transformation underway in most businesses and industries. Already today, we have a powerful technology foundation in place, and this will become even stronger with 5G. Now is the ideal time to evolve the business side of the equation toward platform business models, which will enable the telecom industry to prosper in multisided business ecosystems as well.

Low latency, high flexibility - Virtual AQM

April 10, 2018

Virtual Active Queue Management is an innovative approach to buffer management that does not require deployment in the network nodes where the buffering takes place. Instead, it is deployed as a centralized network function, which allows for simpler configuration and increased flexibility compared to traditional Active Queue Management deployments.  

CTO's comments about the latest magazine

We are publishing this magazine shortly after the first release of a completely new standard – 5G – from 3GPP. Fittingly, many of the articles in this issue relate to what we think is most important in 5G and how to address the new opportunities that it entails.

One of the key reasons for the flexibility provided in 5G is the desire to support industries to use connectivity, virtualization, machine intelligence and other technologies to change their processes and business models as part of the next industrial revolution, Industry 4.0. It is therefore a pleasure to be able to include an article that we have co-written with Comau and the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies on the topic of industrial automation.

I hope you find the contents of this issue of the magazine as intriguing as I do. Please feel free to share links to the magazine and/or individual articles via e-mail or social media.
