CTO's comments about the latest article

To capitalize on IoT opportunities without taking undue risks, service providers need an end-to end (E2E) security solution that continuously monitors threats, vulnerabilities, risks and compliance, and has the capability to perform automated remediation. This type of solution requires a carefully tailored IoT security and identity management architecture that is able to manage and orchestrate the IoT components both horizontally and vertically, and can address both security and identity from the IoT device throughout the service life cycle. To provide economies of scale and create a superior E2E ecosystem, we have designed our solution in accordance with well-established industry standards.

The latest Ericsson Technology Review article explains Ericsson’s view of how security can best be managed and deployed in an E2E manner throughout IoT domains, ensuring that system resources and assets are continuously monitored and protected.

End-to-end Security Management for the IoT

November 21, 2017

Industries everywhere are digitizing, which is creating a multitude of new security requirements for the Internet of Things (IoT). End-to-end (E2E) security management will be essential to ensuring security and privacy in the IoT, while simultaneously building strong identities and maintaining trust.

Designing for the future: the 5G NR physical layer

July 24, 2017

More than a simple evolution of today’s 4G (LTE) networks, 5G will also include a new, globally standardized radio access technology known as New Radio (NR). 5G NR is well suited to meet the complex and sometimes contradictory requirements within the areas of enhanced mobile broadband, massive machine-type communications and ultra-reliable low-latency communications. All the 5G NR physical layer technology components are flexible, ultra-lean and forward compatible.

Video QoE: leveraging standards to meet rising user expectations

June 27, 2017

Video has become the dominant driver of internet traffic globally, taking up the majority of bandwidth on most networks around the world. Network congestion during popular viewing times frequently manifests itself as a degradation in video streaming quality (stalling, shifts in resolution, pixelization, changes in frame rate and so on) which frustrates and annoys viewers. To overcome this challenge, mobile network operators and media service providers urgently require solutions that can provide an accurate estimation of video QoE. Full implementation of the P.1203 standard would be a significant step in the right direction.

CTO's comments about the latest magazine

The latest issue of Ericsson Technology Review includes articles that shed light on important topics including the evolution of LTE to fit the 5G future; an overview of the latest developments in microwave backhaul; and how DevOps can be used to satisfy demands for faster turnaround in feature development.

It also contains our annual technology trends article, in which I present what I believe are the five trends to watch in our industry in the years ahead, namely: an adaptable technology base, the dawn of true machine intelligence, end-to-end security and identity for IoT, an extended-distributed IoT platform, and overlaying reality with knowledge.

I hope you find the contents of this issue of the magazine as thought-provoking as I do. All of the articles included here are also available individually on our website. Please feel free to share them via e-mail or social media.
