The TSP Server Platform encompasses the ServiceNetworks/Applications and Control layers of the layered network architecture.In a separate release:Ericsson is planning to move its headquarters from Telefonplan in southern Stockholm, to Kista, north of Stockholm. The move is to take place in stages during 2003 and involves approximately 500 employees working within different corporate functions.Today, Ericsson is renting the premises at Telefonplan from AP Fastigheter, who bought it from Ericsson in 2000.
