CTO's editorial for latest article

The massive IoT device domain faces two key challenges: cost-efficiently connecting a large number of devices in a wide area, and efficiently managing these devices over their complete life cycle. Further, since security and trust are key requirements in most massive IoT applications, it is important to ensure that the devices are secure, both in terms of communication and data integrity end-to-end (E2E), from device to data usage.

The latest Ericsson Technology Review article explores how to address these challenges in five key technology areas – connectivity, communication protocols, security, identity solutions and machine intelligence (MI). Carefully considered choices in these areas make it possible to achieve the desired key device characteristics and create IoT devices that support the multitude of existing and emerging massive IoT use cases.

Key technology choices for optimal massive IoT devices

January 9, 2019

The latest cellular communication technologies LTE-M and NB-IoT enable the introduction of a new generation of IoT devices that deliver on the promise of scalable, cost-effective massive IoT applications using LPWAN technology. However, a few key technology choices are necessary to create IoT devices that can support the multitude of existing and emerging massive IoT use cases.

Simplifying the 5G ecosystem by reducing architecture options

November 30, 2018

Previous mobile generations have taught us that industry efforts to reduce fragmentation yield massive benefits. In the case of 5G, an industry effort to focus deployment on a limited set of key connectivity options will be critical to bringing it to market in a timely and cost-efficient way.

Distributed cloud: A key enabler of automotive and industry 4.0 use cases

November 20, 2018

Both 4G and 5G mobile networks are designed to enable Industry 4.0 use cases by providing high bandwidth and low-latency communication on the radio interface for both downlink (DL) and uplink (UL) data. Distributed cloud technology exploits these features, enabling a distributed execution environment for applications to ensure performance, short latency, high reliability and data locality. As a result, distributed cloud is highly beneficial technology to support emerging use cases in industries such as automotive and manufacturing, where the first phases of Industry 4.0 are currently taking place.
