IoT ecosystem

Driving for global standards and open ecosystems

IoT ecosystem

​Today’s fragmented ecosystem of standards, devices and services slows enterprise IoT deployments. Deployments focus primarily on single use case, or are locked to single standard. As a result they often require redundant infrastructure, lack proper security mechanisms and require extensive systems integration to interoperate.​

Ericsson’s strategy is to engage and embrace open IoT ecosystems with our cellular knowledge and capabilities, to make IoT easy to adopt, use and scale for all players. We approach the IoT ecosystem through active collaborations and partnerships.
