Ericsson and UKE 5G training collaboration

Ericsson 5G learning portfolio 2018 from Ericsson

In February 2018, UKE, the Office of Electronic Communications, which is the Polish Telecommunications regulator, together with Ericsson Learning Services formed a cooperation as UKE begins their journey to 5G. The aim of this cooperation is to develop and enhance essential 5G competence within UKE, as they prepare for the potential scenarios that will arise during 5G integration.

Key pillars of 5G and its influence in future networks

As I was thinking of writing a blog about Open source networking summit 2018 in Los Angeles, I’ve noticed the keynotes and technical sessions bringing together the forces of networking and cloud more so this year compared to previous years. This also correlates with crucial movement happening in our industry—convergence of telecom networking and cloud.

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.

Is your application portfolio ready for modernization?

Telecom operators rightfully want to thrive in the digital age, but often the nagging questions is: Where to start? 

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

Now you can view the full length demo video of software-defined infrastructure. 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.

Define your cloud transformation strategy

Welcome back to our Cloud Transformation blog series! In my earlier post, I discussed briefly about the main challenges faced by operators globally embarking on their Cloud Transformation journeys. To best avoid the common pitfalls, I recommended that operators go through a series of assessment and planning programs, in parallel to the technology pilots being carried out in their networks. In this post, I'll address the first stumbling block to “Failure to drive change beyond technology”.

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.
