Patrik, pictured above, has been one of the driving forces behind the Ericsson Mobility Report since it first came out in 2011, forecasting the future of our connected world. Based on past and current data, and validated with extensive network measurements, the report provides industry-leading projections as well as analyses of the latest market trends.

The report’s scope continues to change, as it tries to capture changes in network usage behavior. Over the years, it has covered industry topics ranging from connected cars to using radio signals to forecast the weather.

The full global reports are published twice yearly, in November and June, each edition carries a set of regional reports which are published once a year. Statistics are updated four times a year.

Dez caught up with Patrik recently and asked him about the some of the big disruptions being met today and they discussed what is on the horizon in terms of technology trends in the next 12 to 18 months.
