Research, insights and technology reflections

Aiming for impact on tomorrow’s information society

“Learning about the world of science, technology and business for impactful technological development in infocommunications” – this is how I formulated my professional mission statement a couple of years ago at the beginning of my career. This blog post describes what my head-in-the-clouds mission statement means, how I identify impactfulness, and why it is an exciting professional goal for me as a PhD student intern at Ericsson Research.

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.

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.

How Ericsson and Telefónica built a cutting edge 5G-ready transport solution

Ericsson and Telefónica have together successfully showcased a traffic-agnostic 5G-ready transport solution for both Radio and Fixed Enterprise Access. It is based on Ericsson’s groundbreaking and future-proof eXhaul concept, which allows a wide range of transport technologies, including CPRI, eCPRI and Ethernet, to efficiently and securely share the same physical infrastructure.
