Continuous delivery and continuous deployment helps turning on 5G

How far have network operators reached with continuous delivery and continuous deployment? Or maybe I should ask, how far have network operators reached with continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) including continuous deployment? What benefits have they experienced and how will those support the 5G setup?

NEBS 3 Compliance—what it is and why it's needed

Intel has launched its new Intel® Xeon® processor D-2100 product family, which features the innovative mesh architecture of Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor, introduced in mid-2017. Ericsson will use the new processor in the NEBS3-compliant Ericsson Blade Server Platform 8100 (BSP 8100), one of the products in our proven NFVi solution. What is NEBS3 hardware and why is it needed?

Beyond edge computing—distributed cloud podcast with Sheng-Ann Yu

Imagine being one of the driving forces behind creating something completely new, not yet available on the market and set to transform the future? The future of how we work, live and play. Imagine taking something that begins as an idea and transforming it into reality. Join us to listen to an exclusive podcast by Dez Blanchfield, where we get to hear from Head of Solution Line Distributed Cloud, Sheng-Ann Yu and how she believes a new cloud set up is needed to ‘turn on 5G’ and make connectivity of things (IoT) become a reality.

Why is Ericsson a leader in Telco NFV?

There are many who still question if this will really work and fulfill the promises of lower opex and shorter time to market for new services. Steve Saunders at Light Reading has described the NFV transformation as a disaster for the whole industry, where key values such as stable reliable networks based on standards have been forgotten.

BT and Ericsson joint webinar on network slicing

Join us in this joint webinar on January 11th to understand the economic considerations in building a 5G infrastructure that fulfils the diverse service requirements of multiple use-cases and industries.

Working with SDI from an operational perspective

Software-defined infrastructure (SDI) provides the capability to control and configure compute, storage, and networking hardware from a central management platform. The hardware resources are organized into virtual performance-optimized datacenters (vPODs) using an advanced hardware management system. Ericsson implements this technology in its SDI offering, where Ericsson Command Center provides the necessary hardware management building blocks for service providers.

Turning Telco NFV into Business

Overall transformation to digital will be required to be prepared for 5G. Data is going to drive business, where a common network infrastructure for programmability, automation, and digital customer engagement will be essential. The telco NFV will enable an industrialized practice for onboarding services based on continuous software delivery.

Micro datacenters; what it is and why telcos need it

Telecom operators are in a good position to be part of the IoT value chain by utilizing their existing network assets. But one must go through a long checklist though to grab this opportunity. Utilizing micro-datacenters for current and new services is one of the checkboxes.

How does software-defined infrastructure make NFVi better?

Telecom operators are investing in network functions virtualization (NFV) to improve speed, efficiency, and agility. NFV is a key technology required to realize the emerging 5G and IoT business potential. At the same time, software-defined infrastructure (SDI) is gaining traction in the market. What is the relationship between SDI and NFV infrastructure (NFVi), and how does NFVi benefit from SDI?

Ericsson HDS 8000 wins NFV award at AfricaCom

We are thrilled to be awarded the first place in the category for Best Network Function Virtualization Solution with our Hyperscale Datacenter System 8000.

Automated Acceptance Testing—a competitive advantage

The need to reduce Core Network operational costs is common among all service providers. Rapid introduction of new software in the Packet Core domain brings new functionality and revenue possibilities, but the deployment process can be lengthy and laborious, which translates into cost and weakened competitiveness.That’s all changing however.
