Ericsson IoT Accelerator

The Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to connect and create digital representations of the physical world, making it possible to transform business models, to enable data-driven decisions and to optimize the performance of business processes. For individuals, IoT provides the potential to save time and improve quality of life.


The speed of these changes triggers the need for new cloud based solutions to process and deliver a vast amount of information across a wider ICT ecosystem, including devices, applications & enterprise’s back-end systems.
IoT Platforms (aka Application Enablement Platforms) are designed to speed up and simplify the development of IoT solutions by providing developers with tools for integrating connectivity, enable device management, data analytics and expose information through APIs in the market place.

Ericsson is complementing its industry-leading telecom networks with one single end to end IoT Stack based on IoT Accelerator. Incorporating a constantly growing set of functionality, Ericsson IoT Accelerator leverages the scale, speed and lower cost of a cloud based solution to address use-cases and applications for Enterprises and Telecom Operators.

Making IoT a reality requires simplicity, scalability, and security

Deploying IoT solutions on a mass scale usually comes with a number of challenges, including fragmented connectivity, security issues across the value chain, unclear monetization model in the business transformation, lengthy time-to-market to deliver new services, and scarce competence.

Ericsson IoT Accelerator breaks down the barriers between billions of devices and millions of applications, allowing you to build end to end solutions faster, more secure and truly scalable.

What is Ericsson IoT Accelerator?

Ericsson IoT Accelerator is a cloud based horizontal cross-industry offering comprising of platform services and near product services, for telecom operators and industries.

IoT Accelerator provides a continuous incremental set of functionality offered as a Service to enable agile creation and deployment of solutions for the Internet of Things. 

The Software as a service (SaaS) business model provides the speed, scale and lower cost needed for competitively addressing the IoT market challenges. It allows customers to lowers the initial risk and initial cost shifting investments from CAPEX to OPEX.

The delivery strategy is multi-cloud, meaning that the service is delivered from public cloud and on-premises deployments.

An important characteristic of the IoT Accelerator offering is that although Ericsson provides a full IoT functional stack, customers pick & choose the selected functionality from the stack, paying only for what is consumed.

One of the greatest values under this flexibility lays on the pre-integration of functionality as a Service. It allows a great deal of simplification for customers removing effort, time and cost, including verification, updates, lifecycle, etc.

IoT Accelerator brings world class mobile connectivity management and enables you to build trustworthy secure IoT services on Ericsson’s end-to-end vertically integrated systems. Giving you the speed to market needed to create rapid service deployment and IoT monetization.
