Ericsson at CTIA Wireless 2011: Enabling the networked society

During the International CTIA Wireless 2011 show, Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) will show how it is prepared to take a leading role in the transformation into the Networked Society, the next era of growth in the information communications technology (ICT) space. The company will demonstrate how the Networked Society will change how people live, work and play.

Hans Vestberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ericsson, says: "The forces of mobility, broadband and the cloud — where information is easily maintained and instantly accessed — come together in the Networked Society. These forces can address some of the biggest challenges on Earth - - things like education, population movements, CO2 emissions, and healthcare."

Vestberg cited studies demonstrating the value of investing in broadband and a simulation found that, in the United States, a 10 percent increase in broadband penetration leads to the creation of more than 2 million new jobs.

A special emphasis will be on the trend of urbanization, where rapid growth in big cities is spawning an environment of creativity and opportunity for human development.

"Around the world, the urban population grows by 7,500 people every hour. That growth fuels the need for creative solutions including and beyond simple voice and messaging. There is a need to innovate and collaborate to deliver the quality of experience that people demand," says Vestberg.

Ericsson will discuss its ideas on the Networked Society at:

  • Press conference: 2 p.m. Tuesday, March 22, at Orange County Convention Center (Rooms N220A and N220B). Mr Vestberg will address how smart, scalable networks that provide superior performance will be essential in addressing the challenges urban environments will face as the result of large-scale migration from rural areas.

  • CTIA keynote session: 10:15 a.m. Wednesday, March 23, at Orange County Convention Center (Keynote Auditorium). Mr Vestberg and special guest Patrick Soon-Shiong, M.D., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Institute for Advanced Health, will deliver a keynote address on how connectivity is transforming the way medicine is practiced.

  • Town hall meetings at the Ericsson stand (#2431) at 3:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesday, March 22, and 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Wednesday, March 23.

At its stand (#2431) on the exhibition floor, Ericsson will present demonstrations of mobility, broadband and the cloud — the driving forces of the Networked Society. These demonstrations will include:

  • CDMA evolution: Progression of EVDO to EVDO Advanced incorporating new features for continued network efficiency and effectiveness. Co-existence of CDMA and LTE networks plus use of existing resources for smooth LTE deployment. Live HD-Voice on CDMA voice network for improved user experience.

  • Health-care applications: Technology applied for medical use will include the Ericsson Mobile Health remote patient monitoring system. Demonstrations with partners will include video-based 911 (emergency calling), LTE-connected home health-care monitoring and high-definition video conferencing for the medical industry.

  • Heterogeneous networks: A new network design strategy required in the world of cloud services on mobile devices. This includes Ericsson’s Antenna Integrated Radio (AIR) solution, which drastically cuts energy consumption and installation costs.

  • OSS/BSS including horizontal provisioning: How operators benefit from consolidating several provisioning systems into a single horizontal platform. How service providers can move from managing just voice and data plans to managing plans covering the needs of 50 billion devices while maintaining quality of experience.

  • Service-Aware Policy Controller: Policy server that helps operators increase revenue through personalized services, while optimizing network resource usage.

  • Smart Services Router: New-generation router that delivers differentiated and personalized services to consumers.

  • Social web of things: Devices that are socially networked rather than connected on a one-to-one basis, thus unleashing the true power of 50 billion connected devices.

  • Voice over LTE: LTE voice calls over a smartphone with an IMS client according to GSMA specifications.
