Ericsson is leading the transformation of mobile networks to open, programmable network platforms, using software-defined networks and distributed cloud capabilities. Open Source is a key tool here for working and innovating collaboratively, and for rapidly developing basic technology components for new products.
As a leader in open industry collaboration, Ericsson has been working with a large number of partners, customers and other vendors for years as part of the global standards-setting process. Openness has been a major part of the success of the mobile networks, with significant contribution from Ericsson.
That is why Ericsson continues to actively embrace open source in its NFV and Cloud activities.
