Massive IoT becomes reality

Our new consolidated portfolio of LTE network services for Internet of Things

Network Services for Massive IoT

With the introduction of commercial IoT networks, our broad range of offerings for cellular technology is complemented with Network Services for Massive IoT over LTE RAN. The result is a complete set of services and products that makes it possible to create the best solution for Massive IoT.


IoT devices are anticipated to surpass mobile phones as the largest category of connected devices as early as 2018; in 2022 those connections are foreseen to reach 18 billion. This heavy uptake requires a different approach, compared to traditional mobile broadband networks.

Outline a strategy that considers a massive IoT growth—from the beginning

To meet the challenges of the ascending plethora of IoT sensors, the Network Services for Massive IoT is built upon partnership.

Our network planning and design team will partner with you and enable you to leverage your existing LTE installed base to become an IoT platform. The team will enable a smooth introduction of the Massive IoT software, by integrating it in your existing network.  As the technology is introduced and the software is deployed on your network, we extend our portfolio offering to support your Massive IoT networks with a zero-defect-network-vision. Our team can also take a complete ownership of managing the networks for you, and through our advanced machine learning algorithms, we can help you manage the cost.

Let massive IoT become reality and capitalize on its new use cases.

Massive IoT Services

In this online live webinar Ericsson's Mohit Malhan, Marketing Manager for Massive IoT Services, and Stevan Filipovic, Head of Network Design and Optimization, will present our new network services supporting telecom operators to bring massive IoT into reality. The webinar will be run twice on August 23rd.

Utilize an end-to-end IoT solution:

Massive IoT Software for Cellular Networks

Our products enabling Cat-M1 (also called LTE-M) and NB-IoT are commercially available now. New features, as  functionalities like VoLTE support for Cat-M1, have been added enabling operators to explore new use cases.

Network Design and Optimization Services

High quality RAN designs for massive IoT that address both coverage and capacity dimensioning for the selected IoT technology and its use cases.

Network Deployment and Configuration

Software introduction to the existing RAN base and securing that the selected package features perform and is configured with emphasis on performance.

Network Support Services

Holistic approach to handle increasing complexity and workload caused by significant growth of connected devices, enabling Network Operations to be proactive.

Operate and Manage

Cognitive, automated machine learning algorithms are being deployed in our Network Operations Centers. These algorithms replace todays' manually configured solutions; a game changer for IoT event and incident management.
