Ericsson Being in the global telecom competitive intelligence business, we are constantly doing primary research into competitors for our clients.

Ericssons main issue is not technology it's culture - where did/does the arrogance come from?

Re: Ericsson Ericsson's future looks bleak.

According to Verizon's 5G test license filing to FCC, Ericsson doesn't have a functional 28 Ghz tech, they only have a 15 Ghz tech which happens to interfere with US military equipment and cannot be commercially deployed in the US. Samsung's going to be the king of 5G era in the US, with Ericsson pushed out to backend roles.

Huawei also doesn't have 28 Ghz tech either, but at least Huawei has China and Japan markets to look forward to.

Re: Ericsson TV Monitor,

is there any single post in which you mention *neither* 28 GHz nor Samsung?

Expressing opinions in the posts makes them more interesting (and less annoying), compared to vulgar marketeering.

Sure, ones about women in telco.

Anyhow US 5G = 28 Ghz = Samsung. This formula stands because no one else has an operational 28 Ghz 5G system ready to go by 2020.

It's kind of stunning to see Ericsson's network business fall from grace so quickly, this is like witnessing the collapse of mobile division all over. Yet no one at Ericsson seem to be alarmed or even understand what kind of situation they are in right now, or what the future holds for them in 5 years.

"Chinese State bank must be very proud."

Well, Chinese state-owned banks do this for missiles, bullet trains, and infrastructure too.

Re: Ericsson It seems as though the Chinese vendors are getting an unfair advatange, working in challenging emerging markets and doing whatever they have to. I guess that's just part of doing business in some places, but I think the likes of Cisco would prefer to work within the realms of more legal sales strategies. Interesting to hear some of these shortcuts.

Re: Ericsson danielcawrey

State bank financing is legal and is done everywhere. For example, even a country as rich as UAE took a state bank financing when it bought $25 billion worth of nuclear power plants from Korea. Or look at Japan, which loaned $8 billion at a 0.25% interest rate(Yup, 0.25%) to be repaid over 50 years to sell its Shinkansen system to India. Heck, Chinese state banks provided a $12 billion loan in order to sell the Chinese bullet train system to Las Vegas-SoCal corridor project.

Just because the US doesn't do it doesn't make it illegal.

Re: Ericsson How different is this to the soft loans Western governments were providing to western vendors to sell into China 20-30years ago, under the guise of foreign aid?
