Ericsson reaching milestone of 100 commercial vEPC customers

It’s been a ride, from first customer trials in 2014, to the No. 1 position at the end of 2015, when we went live initially with virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) and launched mobile broadband capacity expansions with Softbank, to today when we reached 100 commercial vEPC customers. I think many of us in the NFV space have been thinking it’s been slow, but getting into 100 commercial customers shows that this has truly moved into the mainstream. It's time for some reflection and also for sharing what our latest customers are doing.

Dell'Oro names Ericsson top vendor for Evolved Packet Core
