Saranyu: Building a Virtual Services Marketplace with Smart Contracts

Most of the hype around blockchains for cryptocurrency seems to have peaked by now, and the topic seems headed down the Gartner hype cycle curve toward the Valley of Despair. Meanwhile, a community of researchers has been working quietly in the shadows of the Bitcoin circus toward other applications of blockchains, particularly those involving smart contracts and permissioned ledgers.

“Let’s talk (Ericsson) Research”

Research is of critical importance to a technology company like Ericsson. Sharing research results with a wider audience – research communities, industry analysts, and the interested public, in addition to customers and partners – is vital for visibility and recognition. During her internship at Ericsson Research, Emma Hedlund has been part of the external communication process, responsible for the Ericsson Research twitter and LinkedIn channels.

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.

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!
