Google Cloud and Ericsson announced a collaboration today that will aim to explore 5G and edge cloud technologies. The aim of this partnership is to assist communication service providers in the further digitization of their services, as well as in the discovery of new corporate and consumer applications. Customers in over 200 nations rely on Google Cloud as a reliable partner to help them develop and address their most pressing business challenges. Ericsson allows telecommunication companies to enhance connectivity. The services of this firm include mobile and fixed broadband networks, consultancy and managed services, as well as TV and multimedia technology.
Communication Service Providers (CSPs), merchants, manufacturing, transportation firms, healthcare, and media/entertainment providers face increasing demands from across the globe to develop more digitized businesses and innovative digital experiences for their consumers. To assist companies in addressing this demand, these organizations have now setup their base of operations at Ericsson’s Silicon Valley D-15 Labs, a cutting-edge innovation hub, where innovative solutions and technologies can be created and tested on a multi-layer 5G network. These two entities have already achieved the functional integration of Ericsson’s 5G on Anthos, allowing CSPs and businesses to deploy Ericsson 5G through both the telco’s edge network, and on premise as well.
They are also involved in the testing of corporate apps on Edge’s live network with the TIM Group (Telecom Italia) as part of this collaboration. The project will leverage TIM’s Telco Cloud framework, Google Cloud solutions, and Ericsson’s 5G core infrastructure and orchestration solutions to automate the tasks of TIM’s core 5G network and other cloud-based apps. By providing connections in proximity to customized locations, these combined services will assist organizations in various sectors such as the automotive, transportation, and manufacturing, among other industries, to increase efficiency and decrease latency levels.
