Ericsson is a provider of communications technology, such as provide the software, hardware and services to telecom operators, networking equipment, television solutions and the accompanying support that their solutions requires. As one of the largest companies in the field, Ericsson is leading the development of what they call: “The Networked Society”.
The Ericsson branch in Taiwan specializes in IOT (interoperability tests), that is, to make sure customer devices and applications function well in live network environments. This is made to ensure the customer that the equipment is of the highest standard.
During our meeting numerous topics were discussed, the most interesting one being their vision of the future and how the company will develop accordingly. The development of the internet has been incredibly fast, the amount of connected devices have been and will be increasing exponentially. The challenges lie in providing a network that can withstand the increasingly demanding customer (in terms of speed and stability), but also the increasing numbers of connected devices. From five billion to fifty. During the past years we have seen 1G, 2G, 3G and 4G have been developed. Where each new generation was developed to serve more users. “The Networked Society” will lead us to the fifth generation of internet – 5G.
