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.

Why continuous software delivery is so important

Some things get better with age. Wine, objects of art, friendship, and love are some common examples. Some might also add old and proven software to that list, but would that really be justified? Sure, the software industry has a history of debugging and hardening its products over time, and it may feel safe to stay on an old and proven software release. If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it, right?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is happening—are you ready?

IoT in telecom is happening. We can sense it when reading all the news about narrowband IoT(NB-IoT) networks under deployment around the world right now. Have you decided which role you want to play in this industry segment?

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.

5G network slicing: the economic opportunities for operators

With 5G on the horizon, the Internet of Things (IoT) offers great potential to transform industry and society. That said, in order to capture the opportunity, operators will need to carefully consider the new demands being placed on their networks and make strategic investments in order to deliver high-quality, efficient IoT services.

The top three stumbling blocks for cloud transformation programs

Operators, globally, are rapidly embarking on their evolution towards being digital service providers. If you’re one of them, it’s high time to begin your own digital transformation so that you are positioned to help your customers achieve theirs. That means updating your services, network, infrastructure, and operations to become agile and accelerate innovation. The cloud, in all it fuzzy definitions, is an integral part of achieving the digital transformation. A successful Cloud Transformation will create the necessary foundation for the digital service provider of the future.

Ericsson Cloud Blog becomes Future Digital Blog

It’s sometimes hard not to get whiplash due to the speed by which industries and markets are evolving. That’s why so many of us turn to blogs to help keep us informed. And that’s why we’re pleased to announce that the Ericsson Cloud Blog and the IT/OSS/BSS Blog have joined forces to create the Future Digital Blog, where we’ll discuss all things digital.

Want to know how to get the latest and greatest using continuous software delivery ?

We’re all familiar with phrase ‘latest and greatest’, but how can you bring new functionality to subscriber customers in the fastest way possible?

How to best understand the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor

If you are asking, "What is Intel® Skylake?," "What is Intel® Purley?," or "What is Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor?," then you have come to the right place.

Test results: 40Gbps per CPU for Ericsson vEPG

Ericsson virtual Evolved Packet Gateway (vEPG) is a main node in the Ericsson Evolved Packet Core solution: the heart of mobile broadband. We tested our cloud-optimized vEPG on the recently launched Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor and the result is impressive: a throughput of 40Gbps per processor.

Networking: The Final Frontier For Software Defined Application Visibility

As applications and services move into virtualized environments, and network speeds leap from 10Gbps (yesterday) to 25/40Gbps (today) to 100Gbps in coming years, the legacy methods of monitoring application flows don’t scale. At the same time, with overlays and underlays and associated complexity, there is a bigger need to monitor every application and every application flow.
