Ericsson and MIT Collaborate to Research Next Generation of Mobile Networks

ERICSSON | July 09, 2021

As we enter a new era of electronics driven by 5G and, eventually, 6G, MIT and Ericsson are working together on two research projects to help develop the new network infrastructure needed to undertake the truly revolutionary use cases that the next generation of mobile networks will offer. The new mobile network generations provide the end-user with ultra-fast speeds, low latency, and excellent reliability. Large, feature-rich networks, on the other hand, are complicated structures for network operators to maintain. Ericsson is researching cognitive networks that use artificial intelligence (AI) to allow safe, highly automated, data-driven network operations. Ericsson Research and the MIT Materials Research Laboratory collaborate to research new designs in lithionic chips enabling neuromorphic computing, offering exponentially more energy-efficient AI processing to improve the compute power, speed, and energy efficiency of cognitive networks. This could enable completely intelligent networks with lower operational complexity and energy consumption than today. Apart from lithionics research, Ericsson and the MIT Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) are working on mobile network research that connects billions of sensors and other "zero-energy" devices around us. It is a significant technological challenge to power these devices cost-effectively, possibly directly through a radio signal. Ericsson and MIT RLE's research may show how devices can collect energy from radio signals and other sources and how systems can be built to use this little power to perform basic tasks, such as how a mobile network can be designed to link and manage these devices. ABOUT ERICSSON Ericsson enables communications service providers to realize the value of connectivity fully. The business portfolio includes Networks, Digital Services, Managed Services, and Emerging Businesses. It is designed to assist our clients in going digital, increasing efficiency, and discovering new income streams. Ericsson's efforts in innovation have enabled billions of people across the globe to enjoy the advantages of telephony and mobile broadband.

Remote work infrastructure requires on-prem network changes

techtarget | May 01, 2020

The stay-at-home orders came quickly and with minimal warning. Chances are you turned off the office lights, locked the door and headed home. Maybe you gave little thought about how to adapt the network for the change in network traffic as employees switched to remote work. During this time of working from home, the network change requirements will be different for nearly every enterprise as they address their remote work infrastructure. If all employees are working from home, you could shut down some network components. For instance, you could shut off the switches supporting employee offices to save on power and air conditioning. Wi-Fi can also be shut off, but if some employees are still going into the office, then the parts of the network they use must be left on.

Open Source Leader the Eclipse Foundation Launches Vendor-Neutral Operating System for Next-Generation Device Interoperability

Eclipse Foundation | October 26, 2021

The Eclipse Foundation, an European open source foundation, furthering the recently announced cooperation with the OpenAtom foundation, announced today the launch of the Oniro project and working group. Oniro aspires to become a transparent, vendor-neutral and independent alternative to established IoT and edge operating systems. To achieve this goal and ensure Oniro has a global reach, the Eclipse Foundation and its members will deliver a compatible independent implementation of OpenHarmony, an open source operating system specified and hosted by the OpenAtom Foundation. “Oniro is open source done right,” said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation. “It represents a unique opportunity to develop and host a next-generation operating system to support the future of mobile, IoT, machine economy, edge and many other markets.” With the creation of the Oniro top-level project, the Eclipse Foundation aims to strengthen the global technology ecosystem, while bringing a vendor-neutral, open source OS to the global market. To facilitate the governance for the Oniro device ecosystem, the Eclipse Foundation is also launching a new dedicated working group. The Eclipse Foundation’s working group structure provides the vendor neutrality and legal framework that enables transparent and equal collaboration between companies. “We’re very proud to be hosting a major European open source project with worldwide contribution aiming to develop an independent OS,To achieve this, we want to welcome developers and companies from Europe and the rest of the world to join our working group at the Eclipse Foundation and bring this groundbreaking project to life together.” Gael Blondelle, vice president of European ecosystem development Quotes from Working Group Members Huawei “We have been working hard with Linaro, Seco, Array, NOITechPark, Synesthesia to prepare Oniro’s initial code contribution and public cloud CI/CD infrastructure, and it is so exciting to see everything moving under the expert governance of the Eclipse Foundation,” said Davide Ricci, Director of the Huawei’s Consumer Business Group European Open Source Technology Center. “Under the Eclipse Foundation the project will have its greatest chance at onboarding new contributing members and bringing real products on the shelves of consumer electronics stores around the world. We reckon Oniro is not a sprint, rather a marathon, and we are thrilled and committed to this world changing journey.” Linaro “Over the past year, Linaro has worked closely with Huawei and other Oniro members on preparing the OS foundations of Oniro, leveraging the work Linaro is already doing on open source projects such as MCUboot, the Yocto project, Trusted Substrate and multiple RTOSs,” said Andrea Gallo, VP of Business Development. “Formalizing the governance of this project through the Eclipse Foundation is the natural next step in delivering a truly vendor-neutral and independent operating system.” SECO “Oniro will be the future of the open source OS, it will mark a new trend for its deeply innovative nature and defining it only as an operating system would be extremely reductive. In fact, it focuses on the end-user with an incredible user-experience, but it is also oriented to the content creators and OEMs at the same time, bringing to all of them certainty, choice and convenience,” said Gianluca Venere, Chief Innovation Officer, SECO. “It is born for device collaboration at the edge, to be hardware architecture independent, to create a swarm intelligence, and to enable ambient computing. For more than 40 years SECO has been designing and manufacturing innovative products and services for OEMs and we strongly believe that Oniro is a game changer in supporting our customers to the digital transformation.” About the Eclipse Foundation The Eclipse Foundation provides our global community of individuals and organizations with a mature, scalable, and business-friendly environment for open source software collaboration and innovation. The Foundation is home to the Eclipse IDE, Jakarta EE, and over 400 open source projects, including runtimes, tools, and frameworks for cloud and edge applications, IoT, AI, automotive, systems engineering, distributed ledger technologies, open processor designs, and many others. The Eclipse Foundation is an international non-profit association supported by over 330 members, including industry leaders who value open source as a key enabler for their business strategies.
