In the last of three instalments, Ericsson CTO Håkan Eriksson talks to Telecoms.com about the transition to IPv6 and the growth of mobile broadband.
The interview was filmed in the Ericsson Hall at Mobile World Congress 2011.
Chilean operator Entel and infrastructure vendor Ericsson have completed what they said is the first Latin American live LTE network test over the APT700MHz spectrum. The trial involved the deployment of 10 test sites with equipment using the frequency band in Rancagua city in Chile.
Telecoms.com catches up with Ericsson CEO Hans Vestberg at the Ericsson Business Innovation Forum in Stockholm. Vestberg is keen to focus on the journey Ericsson is on to transform itself into a broad-based ICT company and to detail some of the milestones and challenges that entails.
Swedish telecom infrastructure vendor and mobile chip giant Qualcomm have announced what they claim is the world’s first inter-company interoperability trial of LTE Category 9 carrier aggregation. The two firms said the technology offers download speeds of up to 450Mbps.
Ericsson has announced its Wallet Platform has been deployed by Millicom-owned Tigo Senegal to offer financial services to customers across West Africa. Tigo Cash mobile services allow subscribers to make payments, store, transfer and withdraw money using a mobile device, even if the user doesn’t have access to traditional banking services.
Making the customer experience fit for the digital age has become one of the main focuses for communications service providers (CSPs). Across the UK, and in fact around the world, CSPs are racing to differentiate themselves with new digital services and features for the people and businesses they serve.
The agility of open source software enables CSPs to deploy applications in minutes or hours instead of weeks or months, avoiding costly long-term projects and physical infrastructure deployments across globally located datacentres. As the future of the mobile datacentre continues to evolve, CSPs can use open source technologies to build and scale a tailored datacentre designed for their specific requirements.
