Core network evolution from EPC to 5G Core made easy

The mobile core network is a central part of 5G network platforms. Where enabling functionality from 3GPP release 13 to 16 define a journey from existing 4G EPC to 5G Core. This post address how this evolution journey can be simplified, with a holistic evolution approach towards a dual mode core network, to reduce risk, cost and time to market.

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.

Telco strategy for making the industry attractive to ecosystem partners

At this moment, Telecom service providers are making strategic choices and investments to safeguard their future relevance - finding new revenues in new industrial contexts. 5G promises a range of new capabilities that will boost relevance and foster new partnerships between Telecom and other industries. However, installing 5G technology alone will not be enough. Read more below.

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.

How 5G might enable virtual reality and augmented reality

Watch Dez Blanchfield and Geoff Hollingworth discussing drivers for disrupting technologies, and specifically how 5G might enable VR and AR.

5G business case—the financial viability of 5G Fixed Wireless Access

There is strong agreement among leading operators that Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) will be one of the early use cases to leverage the capabilities of 5G. In order to commercially move forward, operators must establish the financial justification for FWA over 5G.

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.

The VoLTE market: New devices to monetize

According to the November 2017 Ericsson Mobility Report, the number of VoLTE subscriptions is projected to reach 5.5 billion in 2023. So why is this interesting and how can this help you make more money on your VoLTE network investment?

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.

Distributed Systems — challenging but necessary

In a world of billions of IoT devices producing data — which in many cases must be acted upon within milliseconds — distributed network, compute and data capabilities become increasingly important. 

Orchestration beyond your four walls

Every day our conference rooms here at Ericsson are filled with white board sessions and enthusiastic debates on how we might help operators to maintain and/or regain their relevance in the era of the digitally-savvy consumer. How do we help drive digital transformation across disparate organizations? What application modernization will be required to participate in emerging platform ecosystems? How do we manage the potential onslaught of network slices?
