Ericsson’s smart router has gone into commercial operation this year. It has been evaluated by many operators. Ericsson, after the second quarter, announced that it had secured 7 commercial orders.

At the end of third quarter, Ericsson has 20 commercial contract orders and the company has several more in finalizing.

“This is extremely encouraging. And it’s clear that we have the biggest capacity on mobile packet core equipment. The architecture we had chosen to handle both mobile and text has been extremely well-received,” Hans Vestberg, CEO and president, Ericsson, told analysts announcing its third quarter result.

Last year, reported that Ericsson’s SSR 8000 family of Smart Services Routers (SSR) is a key component of Ericsson’s IP networking. The solution provides simple, smart and scalable solution for converged networks. As a consolidated platform for both fixed and mobile network applications, the SSR enables complete network convergence so subscribers can access services from any device or location.

The SSR 8000 product portfolio is developed in Ericsson Silicon Valley and runs the Ericsson IP Operating System, a highly resilient, modular operating system that has been deployed in 75 of the top 100 operators’ networks in the world.
Carriers benefit from the SSR’s low carbon footprint, superior system efficiency, superior QoE, and highly scalable architecture. The SSR 8020 is a 16Tbps system with 400G full-duplex slots combined with leading density.


When more and more different types of data-driven devices are connected to networks, operators will need to handle unprecedented amounts of traffic and be prepared to cope with an unparalleled diversity of applications and end- user devices.


The 4th generation of IP networks must enable users to access the Internet anywhere at anytime, while delivering personalized services.
