Industry Insights

The second in our quarterly series of Industry Insights: Ray Le Maistre, Editor in Chief at Light Reading shares his thoughts on what expanding network borders mean for security architecture. Click below to read the exclusive article.

When it comes to 5G security, focusing on hard perimeters is the wrong approach for network operators: openness and flexibility will be crucial to fostering the innovation and scale needed for Industry 4.0. Think ‘avocado’, not ‘coconut’.

Ringside Challenges

During our first Ringside Session, our participants challenged Ericsson to find solutions to key issues around 5G & IoT uptake and deployment. These are our responses to those challenges.

Use Cases challenge

Showing the business case for 5G

Ericsson understands the need to provide fine detail when it comes to promoting specific 5G use cases. By working with over 20 industry partners and 45 universities and institutes, we are making sure we develop the right technology for real-world applications.

Here we discuss some of those applications and where 5G is already delivering unparalleled business value.

Standardisation challenge


5G Standardisation is crucial for avoiding fragmentation, a key element of universal connectivity, and retaining consumer confidence.

In this video, we show that Standardisation is already here and highlight Ericsson’s contribution to the 3GPP Release 15 NR, as well as outline some of the work we are doing promoting sustainability and stimulating the uptake of IoT services.

Business Models challenge

Reactive Business Models

For Operators to know where to play in the 5G value chain, they must take direction from their enterprise customers. This means a significant shift in the usual ways of working.

Here we discuss how Ericsson, together with Arthur D. Little, is addressing this challenge by identifying the prime markets for 5G-based business services, and analysing examples of operators all over the world that have already begun evolving their business models
