Research, insights and technology reflections

Next stop, Jorvas – distributed cloud platforms and edge computing

I am Marina Koroleff, a 20 year old Computer Science student from Kirkkonummi, Finland. This summer I’m working as an intern in the cloud team at Ericsson in Jorvas.

Students from many different fields join Ericsson Research for internships or thesis work. You could be next. Follow our blog to learn about the students at Ericsson Research this summer.

Business student delves into technology

The Fourth Industrial Revolution, 5G, digitalization, AI, Machine Learning and automation – words few people can avoid these days. I wanted to be part of an organization where these are not buzzwords, but part of everyday work. A company that has been leading communication technology development for decades, with a competitive environment and where change and diversity are constantly on the agenda.

I’m Sofie, a Norwegian, London-based business student, spending the summer with Ericsson Research.

Learn about an award-winning thesis on privacy and 5G from Ericsson Security Research

Enrique Cobo Jiménez’s work, “Encrypting IMSI to improve privacy in 5G Networks” was named the best master thesis in the field of Application and Services for Cyber-security and Cyber-intelligence by the Spanish Official Association of Electrical Engineers. Enrique tells us about his thesis and his experience at Ericsson Security Research in Stockholm.

Photonic integration becomes a reality

Silicon photonics uses silicon as a miniaturized optical medium for transmitting and switching data at very high speeds. In the recently concluded IRIS project, we demonstrated the full potential of silicon photonics technology, integrating in a silicon chip only a few millimeters large thousands of complex nanoscale optical circuits that are able to process Terabit/s of data, as well as the relevant control electronic circuits.

This is a world record – never before have so many optical circuits been integrated together with their electrical control circuits on the same 3D chip.

What is more, they can be mass produced at low cost and with high miniaturization, unleashing a range of new optical devices for 5G networks, data centers and optical transport networks. The project results exceeded expectations and the integrated switch device performed better than the specifications defined in the early phase of the project. Learn more here!

LURK at the IETF 102

In our previous post, we talked about the role of IETF in shaping the future of the internet and the exciting IETF meeting Montreal will host this summer. One topic we consider important in this context is the design of cryptographic protocols with formal proofs. We believe that formal methods have an important role to play; they should be more systematically applied in standardization to prove important security properties.

One of the items we from Ericsson Research will work on during the IETF 102 is the Limited Usage of Remote Keys (LURK) protocol. Bearing in mind that formal validations are a prerequisite for high levels of security assurance, we design and develop LURK by relying on formal methods to prove security guarantees.

Building the Internet of tomorrow @ IETF 102 in Montreal!

In about two weeks, it’s time for the Internet Engineering Task Force 102 meeting in Montreal. The IETF is a large community that aims at making the internet better, and the IETF meeting is a prime opportunity to contribute to building the internet of tomorrow. Even more so since several other, related events are also taking place.

We’ve put together an overview of what will happen and how it all contributes to the internet evolution – with some extra advice to newcomers.

Test your 5G application in the Urban ICT Arena

The 5G test platform that Ericsson offers to innovators and service developers in the Urban ICT Arena (UICTA) now includes an edge cloud. Applications that need to be executed close to the end user – in other words, those that need very low latency or deal with a lot of local data – can now be tested in a real network environment. Find out more about this test environment and how it can support faster application development.

5G and eye-tracking enabling mobile VR

How do we cope with the anticipated huge demands on bandwidth and device computational power coming from high-quality virtual reality as video resolutions grow higher and higher? Researchers from Ericsson Research, the Royal Institute of Technology KTH, Stockholm, Sweden, and Tobii have demonstrated how bandwidth and device computational requirements can be dramatically reduced by using smart eye-tracking combined with low-latency 5G networks and distributed cloud. This allows network service providers to provide excellent experiences at a fraction of the network burden.
