MWC 2016: Ericsson plans four new solutions for telecoms

Ericsson India
Telecom network vendor Ericsson will showcase four new solutions during Mobile World Congress (MWC 2016) in Barcelona.

These four solutions will equip telecom operators for identifying new revenue opportunities – well ahead of the 5G era, said Ericsson.

Mobile Broadband for Everyone

90 percent of the population will be covered by WCDMA/HSPA mobile broadband networks by 2021, according to the latest Ericsson Mobility Report. More than 50 percent of the population lacks internet access, especially in developing countries.

With the latest mobile broadband solution, Ericsson is addressing 3 challenges: enhancing network performance, improving operations efficiency and lowering cost for mobile broadband coverage.

Ericsson’s WCDMA Flow of Users doubles network performance on existing site infrastructure, Zero Touch WCDMA increases network operational efficiency by a factor of three and Mobile Broadband Expander lowers TCO by up to 60 percent while simplifying deployments of all 2G-only sites that already exist.

Ericsson will launch Mobile Broadband for Everyone in Q2 2016.

Delivering Extreme App Coverage

Ericsson is launching new Ericsson Radio System software and hardware to improve performance and efficiency of today’s LTE technology. The launches support the world’s first commercial offering of LTE 1Gbps peak data rates, in addition to hyper-scalable radio access network architecture for Cloud RAN.

Ericsson will have three new radio access products supporting 4×4 MIMO, and new spectrum bands. The telecom network supplier will launch Delivering Extreme App Coverage solution in Q2 2016.

Experience Centric Managed Services

Ericsson is launching the Service Operations Center (SOC) and the Experience Management Center (EMC) functions of its Experience Centric Managed Services offering to support telecom operators in becoming experience-centric.

The SOC monitors the performance of services such as video streaming and web browsing in real time, which is translated and correlated into network performance requirements. The EMC monitors consumers’ experiences and perception through, for example, customer surveys, social media analytics, Net Performance Score studies and churn analysis, which is translated and correlated into service performance requirements.

Ericsson has already launched the new features of Experience Centric Managed Services for telecoms.

Revenue Manager

Ericsson’s Revenue Manager is a convergent, real-time charging and billing product for digital service providers. It is the first business support system (BSS) designed for the opportunities and challenges of the Networked Society. Ericsson will launch Revenue Manager 16 in June 2016.
