5G deployment options to reduce the complexity

There is much more to introducing 5G than simply deploying New Radio (NR) technology. For a successful 5G launch, the operator needs to secure a network platform, that includes end-to-end (E2E) capabilities aligned across devices, RAN, core and management systems.

Network slicing orchestration—automation from design to assurance

Automation and the ability to customize enhances service performance and customer satisfaction. Orchestration enables the automation of creation and delivery of services. Network slicing is a mechanism that allows operators to offer customized services with shorter time to market. Ericsson presented a network slicing orchestration demo at SDN NFV World Congress and in this blog we will go through the benefits of implementing it in the network.

Automation of 5G cloud native applications

Jan Häglund, head of R&D at Ericsson Digital Services shares his insights in a podcast on virtualization, telco transformation and how to automate 5G cloud native applications.

Digital meets 5G—in the OSS/BSS layer

5G will impact your digital transformation. Yet 5G business success will only come with digitalization. What is the true meaning of these statements? Listen to Ervin van Rijssen, Head of 5G Core Program at Ericsson, as he provides a four-minute technology overview on the road to become a digital 5G service provider. Without giving away all the details, it is about core network evolution and a digital support system stack. Are you prepared?

At the bleeding edge of 5G: Podcast

Episode no.14 has just been released and has two special guests in the hot-seat on this three-way podcast. Together, they discuss what is the business potential with 5G, is there a measurable difference to 4G, what is the technology behind it, what kind of use-cases can be realized and when we expect to have it live. So take a comfortable seat and listen to our experts at the ‘bleeding edge’ of 5G Fredrik Engströmer, Head of Marketing 5G Core and Monika Byléhn, 5G Marketing Director at Ericsson who together take us through the latest developments in this area.

To be first in 5G, first get to the core network

The fifth generation of telecom networks provide the capabilities that will evolve existing industries and create new services. Yet to realize the full potential of 5G, today’s core networks will need to evolve into new eco-systems that foster service innovation.

Is 5G a Schrödinger's cat experiment?

During the last few years, 5G has become part of everyday conversation for those in the telecom and IT industries. No matter how much has been said and how many studies have been done on this new technology and its potential (and how much it is needed) to support the future of our societies, there is still a level of skepticism and questioning regarding why and when one should open the “5G box” and see what’s inside it. This reminds me of Schrödinger's cat experiment.

How to handle 5G migration successfully

There’s no doubt the evolution of 5G is gaining momentum. But migrating to 5G is a multi-faceted process, with many aspects to consider along the way. I recently had the opportunity to share my thoughts on 5G network evolution with Mobile World Live during Mobile World Congress, Shanghai. There, I gave my recommendations for operators who are looking to evolve from their current 4G Core network to 5G.

Why only digital service providers will reap the full potential of 5G

Digital leaders like Netflix, Google, Alibaba etc. are setting a new benchmark for how consumers and enterprises engage through digital ways and channels. Digital is becoming the norm and telco’s feel they desperately need to catch up. Today most operators have initiated digital transformation programs to move from a pure connectivity service provider to a digital service provider.

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.
