STOCKHOLM -- Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) is combining its service provider SDN architectural framework with the Ericsson Cloud System solution to open up for new innovative services with real-time capabilities, while improving efficiency for operator network and IT resources.

Ulf Ewaldsson, CTO, Ericsson, says: “Operators are in a unique position to leverage the real-time capabilities of their networks when providing cloud-based services. By combining service provider SDN with the cloud, we give operators the opportunity to provide cloud services and applications that are tailored to be of real value to their customers, faster and with greater quality.”

Ericsson Cloud System provides a common delivery platform that gives the flexibility and elasticity to deploy software applications and virtualized network functions wherever they are needed in the network. The inclusion of service provider SDN architecture enables network resources to be allocated and controlled dynamically in real time across the operator network, without compromising service quality. An automated and dynamic orchestration of network resources will ensure efficient operation.

Together, service provider SDN framework and the Ericsson Cloud System enable a concept called network slicing, an innovative network and business model that creates new possibilities, including:

  • virtual tailoring of cloud and management, which adds real-time capabilities for different services and device types

    • fulfillment of service quality requirements for enterprises and consumer segments as needed. An example is creating instant VPNs for secure file transfer over public Wi-Fi.
