According to technical observers and analysts, this platform supports approximately 2,000 enterprise customers and 25 telecommunications carriers as far as managing their IoT connections across the globe is concerned.
Ericsson Collaboration with ZDNet in Deploying IoT Networks
Reports revealed that Ericsson is ahead of its competition in testing and deploying Cat_M1 IoT networks. ZDNet is known to be the largest giant currently working in Australia to provide 4G Cat-M1 IoT network all over Australia in collaboration with Telstra. Many of these projects are already under trial or are at the trial stage in Tasmania and Melbourne. Many expect that IoT will bring about a change as far as completion is concerned.
Proper planning, design, operations and capabilities will be required in order to do away with old traditional mobile broadband networks. Ericsson’s head of Business Area Managed Services Peter Laurin explained that good planning a project approach will enable 18 billion connected IoT devices by the year 2022”
