In 2010 there were 10 billion fixed and mobile connections to the internet. By 2020, there will be 50 billion connections to the internet, whereby anything that can benefit from an internet connection will be connected (i.e. Networked Society).  Broadband Service providers are now requiring services like IPTV, Video on Demand, Video Conferencing, Virtual Private Networks, Broadband Aggregation, Wi-Fi solutions, Multimedia Networks, and Edge Routing as part of their product offering. 

The networks of today, simply put, are not ready for this tidal wave.

Over the last 3+ years Ericsson has invested billions of dollars to move from the #1 position in Wireless Infrastructure to take claim as the #1 in end-to-end Converged Infrastructure. There are not many players that have end-to-end capability. There are a whole host of challenges you face when creating a single, fully converged, infrastructure that handles everything.

Leveraging its #1 position in Wireless Infrastructure, Ericsson is making a significant investment in IP technology to become the leader in end-to-end converged infrastructure.  Ericsson successfully launched the SSR 8000 family of Smart Services Routers as part of its IP technology investment and is continuing to invest in hardware development for this platform.

Ericsson's SmartEdge Multi-Service Edge Routers and SSR 8000 family of Smart Services Routers are, and will continue to be at the heart of the converged infrastructure handling the new challenges for years to come.
