Feature articles from Ericsson Mobility Reports

With each edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report we include a number of feature articles, exploring various aspects of the mobile industry. Learn about the latest developments.

Making fixed wireless access a reality

5G networks are now being built out, and performance and capacity gains are available to be tapped by new use cases – one of the first will be fixed wireless access.

Streaming video – from megabits to gigabytes

Smartphone traffic per subscription will continue to grow in the years ahead, driven by increasing video quality and immersive formats.

Developing the smart wireless manufacturing market

By combining cellular networks with Industrial IoT (IIoT), manufacturing will become more effective and flexible – challenging the traditional connectivity paradigm.

Securing the right 5G spectrum

For 5G to be successful in meeting the demands on data speeds and capacities, global harmonization of spectrum is essential.

Applying machine intelligence to network management

Machine intelligence will increasingly be applied to mobile network operations and maintenance, and is allowing systems to expand in size and complexity while improving productivity.

Realizing smart manufacturing through IoT

Almost every asset in a factory can be connected and managed in order to solve operational challenges; we reveal how cellular connectivity can make smart manufacturing a reality.

Network performance through customers’ eyes

A customer survey has found that understanding the relationship between customer satisfaction, experience and network performance is the key to designing networks to drive loyalty.

Millennials’ expectations for 5G

Millennials will most likely set the demands on future digital networks and services due to their technical knowledge and skills, as well as their high expectation levels.

Enhancing the event experience

Data illustrates a growing use of mobile services at large events, presenting an opportunity to provide spectators with ever more engaging digital content.

Shifting mobile data consumption and data plans

Analysis of smartphone data highlights that there is no one-size-fits-all mobile data plan – a broad range is required to address the variety of user demands on the market.

Enabling internet for all

Leveraging existing mobile broadband infrastructure is the most cost-efficient way to bring people online.

Network optimization through analytics

As the need for performance increases, Thai operator, dtac, is using advanced analytics to accelerate network optimization and improvements to user experience.

Massive IoT coverage in the city

Simulation of a realistic large-scale IoT service scenario in a city can be used to show how many devices will be reached using new cellular technologies. 

Remote operation of vehicles with 5G

A key step towards introducing autonomously driven public transport is the development of remote control capabilities, which will help to ensure safety. 

Uplink speed and slow time-to-content

A limited uplink can be a critical factor in causing slow time-to-content on many popular websites, which then has a significant impact on both subscriber loyalty and Net Promoter Score (NPS).

Latest social media trend: live streaming

Browser-centric or social-centric smartphone users find live streaming interesting and intend to use it going forwards, which is set to put new demands on network performance.

Digital transformation and the connected car

Connected cars have been available for a number of years, but mainly as new cars in the premium segment. Now, Swedish telecom operator Telia aims to connect cars up to 15 years old with a cloud-based solution. This exemplifies the opportunity for an operator to expand from data connectivity to offering smart data to an ecosystem of partners – creating innovative service offerings for car owners.

Analyzing IoT device performance

A small number of poorly configured connected devices can cause a signaling storm, degrading an IoT network’s performance and, in the worst case, resulting in a network blackout. Telenor Connexion has combined real-time traffic monitoring with data analytics for IoT devices and networks to reduce the risk of signaling congestion and improve operational performance.

Massive IoT in the city

Cost-effective connectivity is a prime driver for IoT services uptake. Cellular networks are well-suited to enable this due to their ubiquitous deployments worldwide and the ease with which they can be upgraded to handle many potential IoT use cases. Additionally, cellular networks can handle traffic from a massive number of IoT devices in dense urban environments with minimal network capacity impact.
