Interview with Ericsson’s Magnus Ewerbring

Written by on June 16, 2016 in Features with 0 Comments

Ericsson’s Magnus Ewerbring has high expectations for 5G rollout by 2020 in the Asia Pacific region, but standardisation is critical to its success. Referring to the success of the mobile industry itself, which is very much standards based, he acknowledges that 2020 is still a little way off, but is convinced that standards and the pre-commercial trials that they are involved in will pay dividends.

IoT, meanwhile, is here now and a great business opportunity. In fact, says Ewerbring, it has been around for two or three years, using older technology and networks. The focus and priority for 5G is the ‘industrial internet of things’ and Ericsson is working with a range of large companies, such as transport, to understand their business better so that they can serve them well. 5G will be about much more than just consumer access to the internet and will support a huge range of use cases.

Ewerbring discusses use cases, opportunities, pitfalls and timescales in this video interview with Tony Poulos at Communicasia.
