Web Hosting News – Ericsson announces its Network-enabled Cloud concept, a business platform that enables operators to drive new revenues and evolve network capabilities. The Network-Enabled Cloud builds on computing power in today’s telecom assets to both embed enhanced functionality and to expose network capabilities for new service creation. Ericsson takes a 5C approach to the Network-enabled Cloud: connect, control, compute, create and customize.

Consumers, enterprises and society in general are increasingly becoming networked, driven by smart connected devices, broadband networks and cloud-based services. Quality of experience, new revenue models and optimal usage of computing resources are a necessity to serve these needs in an efficient manner. To meet these needs and continuously build and sustain the Networked Society, Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) is developing the concept of a Network-enabled Cloud. It is Ericsson’s comprehensive effort to simultaneously evolve cloud computing and telecom network technologies.

Ericsson’s Network-enabled Cloud builds on and combines today’s telecom assets and delivers dramatically improved quality of experience, new business opportunities, faster time-to-market and reduced cost for operators. In this way, it is creating a platform for innovation that will help realize the Networked Society.

Ericsson’s executives will outline the thinking and use cases of the Network-enabled Cloud at the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2012).

Hans Vestberg, President and CEO of Ericsson, says: “The Network-enabled Cloud provides a roadmap for the evolution of today’s telecom business by addressing the need for new business opportunities while leveraging telecom operators’ core capabilities.”

Ericsson takes a 5C approach to the Network-enabled Cloud:

  • Connect: Anytime, anywhere connectivity and a high-quality experience thanks to high-quality, high-capacity networks
  • Control:  Efficient operations through integrated management of networks and the cloud for reliable service-level agreement (SLA) implementation
  • Compute:  Embedded capabilities that can be activated dynamically thanks to high-performance, telecom-grade infrastructure
  • Create:  Unified communications, enterprise software as a service, service enablement and accelerated business growth through the facilitation of rapid service creation
  • Customize:  Architect, build, optimize and operate complete professional services.

Development of the Network-enabled Cloud will progress in several parallel flows. One starting point is today’s emerging content delivery networks, which benefit from Ericsson’s approach to cloud acceleration. Another starting point is for operators to dedicate one or more telecom-grade cloud data center(s) to enhancing the level of quality and security for the applications they offer, such as unified communications and enterprise applications.

Ericsson will also deliver an integrated Cloud and Network Management suite that facilitates the end-to-end implementation of SLAs resulting from service exposure through application programming interfaces (APIs). An early version of this unique capability is on display at our stand in Hall 6.
