Keynote speaker from Ericsson

Mats Karlsson

Mats Karlsson

Mats Karlsson leads the group within the Ericsson responsible for the network and implementation architecture for all Ericsson products. He also heads the Ericsson Cloud Program, defining and setting the strategy around cloud for the company.

His current focus is to ensure that Ericsson can provide an NFV environment for telco operators, based on OpenStack, that can retain and improve carrier-grade SLAs when applications move from a box-based/native deployment to a cloud-based deployment model.

Mats is also responsible for Ericsson's open source strategy and has been instrumental in driving the foundation of Ericsson-initiated open source projects such as Erlang and OpenSAF.
