It should also be available anywhere, in the office, at home, on the street, in the forest…the list is almost endless.
Being an engineer has probably never been more interesting than it is today, with such rapid advances in technology and how this impacts both our daily life and our work at Ericsson.

It’s hard for anyone to be updated, but to help, our CTO, Erik Ekudden, has just published a new article examining what he sees as the five most significant trends in technology evolution.
Inspired by his list, I have some personal reflections on technology evolution.
