CTO’s comments about the latest magazine: The rise of the innovation platform

Society and industry are transforming at an unprecedented rate. At the same time, the network platform is emerging as an innovation platform with the potential to offer all the connectivity, processing, storage and security needed by current and future applications. In my 2019 trends article, featured in this issue of Ericsson Technology Review, I share my view of the future network platform in relation to six key technology trends.

This issue of the magazine also addresses critical topics such as trust enablement, the extension of computing resources all the way to the edge of the mobile network, the growing impact of the cloud in the telco domain, overcoming latency and battery consumption challenges, and the need for end-to-end connectivity. I hope it provides you with valuable insights about how to overcome the challenges ahead and take full advantage of new opportunities.

5G New Radio RAN and transport choices that minimize TCO

November 7, 2019

By deploying self-built transport in the RAN area instead of using leased lines, mobile network operators gain access to the full range of 5G New Radio RAN architecture options and minimize their total cost of ownership (TCO).

Privacy-aware machine learning with low network footprint

October 21, 2019

Federated learning makes it possible to train machine learning models without transferring potentially sensitive user data from devices or local deployments to a central server. As such, it addresses privacy concerns at the same time that it improves functionality. Depending on the complexity of the neural network, it can also dramatically reduce the amount of data needed while training a model.

Driving transformation in the automotive and road transport ecosystem with 5G

September 13, 2019

Major mobile network operators around the world have started rolling out 5G cellular networks, with subscriber penetration expected to reach about 20 percent by 2024. One of the many benefits of these powerful, multipurpose networks is their ability to provide reliable, secure and fit-for-purpose cellular connectivity in automotive and transport applications.

5G-TSN integration meets networking requirements for industrial automation

August 27, 2019

The move toward smart manufacturing creates extra demands on networking technologies – namely ubiquitous and seamless connectivity while meeting the real-time requirements. Today, 5G is good for factories; nevertheless, its integration with Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) would make smart factories fully connected and empower them to meet all key requirements on industrial communication technology.
