Ericsson - Ready for An Open, Cloud-Native 5G World?

Jan 27, 2021 | Author : Gareth Owen


A telecoms vendor since 1876, Ericsson and has gone through many transformations during its lifetime with the latest starting three years ago in 2017 when newly arrived CEO Börje Ekholm sold off some of the company’s non-core business and focused the company on 5G. At present, the company is reaping the benefits of that strategy and its future looks promising in the short to medium term buoyed by a number of macro-economic tailwinds. 

This report provides an overview of Ericsson’s business areas and provides a strategic assessment of its future prospects as the mobile industry transitions from traditional proprietary infrastructure to open and cloud-native-based architectures.
