Launch: Ericsson Solution For Operators To Mobilize Enterprise

  • Delivers high-value mobile enterprise applications over mobile broadband
  • Supports industry movement toward cloud-based enterprise applications and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
  • Provides IMS standards-based Mobile Unified Communication solution for operators to deliver as a Service (aaS)

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Feb. 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As businesses move IT applications to the cloud, employees expect to be able to access enterprise applications anywhere - whether that's throughout the building where they work or in the back of a taxi on the way to a meeting halfway around the world. And they expect their enterprise IT department and their mobile operator to ensure it all works. However, actual user experience varies depending on network, and access to enterprise applications is generally limited.

Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) is removing barriers to enterprise mobility by enabling mobile and converged operators to deliver integrated cloud, connectivity and communications as-a-service to their enterprise customers. The Ericsson Radio Dot System, launched in September, 2013, addresses the indoor coverage and capacity challenge. Now with the launch of Ericsson Mobile Unified Communication, operators can deliver standards-based, operator-branded Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS). Enterprise users will enjoy a seamless and consistent user experience across networks, while securely accessing enterprise services from any mobile device.

Diane Myers, Principal Analyst, VoIP, UC, and IMS, at Infonetics, says: "By incorporating unified communications in the network, Ericsson enables operators to address enterprise requirements for integrated, standard-based solutions supported on any network and any device. The timing is excellent as operators worldwide are starting to pursue growth opportunities in enterprise services."

Magnus Furustam, Vice President and Head of Product Area Communication Networks, Ericsson, says: "Ericsson's vision of the mobile enterprise goes well beyond supporting remote workers. This launch is an important step in our mobile enterprise strategy that delivers integrated cloud, connectivity and communications as-a-service via operators. Ericsson Mobile UC solves the challenges facing CIOs, replacing a complex ICT infrastructure with a simplified network, managed to the operator's carrier-class standards."
