Telecom security

Our approach to telecom security is built on four key pillars – standardization, product development, deployment and operations. These four areas contribute to forming a strong, secure foundation on which to build large-scale, security-sensitive systems.

Resilient 5G Systems

5G is powering everything, from factory automation to remote control of assets and more. The 5G platform is a truly resilient system – offering predictable performance and security assurance for the most advanced technologies and mission-critical processes.

Trustworthy Systems

At Ericsson, we envision a future where extreme wireless delivers limitless connectivity for all applications – connecting anyone and anything, anywhere and anytime. But to realize this, security and trust management will have a key role to play.
