Ericsson: Latam Insights - We Enable Change-Makers
We enable change-makers in the Networked Society
2 INSIGHTS: REGION LATIN AMERICA AND CARIBBEAN OCTOBER 2015
All around us, we see how connectivity is an essential tool in our
everyday lives. As we believe this is fundamental, we keep on
dedicating time and resources to develop the Networked Society.
Ericsson is driving the 5G technology development, along with
partners and leading operators, to strengthen the network
capabilities in mobile broadband, Internet of Things and media
delivery, as well as to support all the industries that are
transforming as we speak. Such changes may go so far as to
actually redeﬁne the industries themselves, such as transportation
to mobility, retail to exchange, and education to learning.
In our latest Latam Insights brochure, we take a look at some of
our regional projects, alongside highlights from the latest
ConsumerLab reports. In addition, we share the consumer and
market trends currently driving the transformation journey.
I hope that you will enjoy reading this brochure. I or any other
Ericsson representative would be happy to engage in a further
discussion about these topics.
Sergio Quiroga da Cunha
Head of Ericsson Region Latin America and Caribbean
The key enablers of growth and innovation come not from the physical assets and infrastructures themselves,
but from the people, platforms and insights that are leveraged to reinvent them. We deﬁne these new assets
in six key areas:
DATA - OWN, SHARED AND OPEN
Big Data that is collected and analyzed from practically
every aspect of life has tremendous potential to improve
decision-making. As we continue to harness this
data—whether it’s owned, shared or open—it will continue
to become a powerful resource.
THINGS - CONNECTED AND INTELLIGENT
We are now entering a reality where billions of digitally
connected objects arethe equivalent of raw materials for
much more dynamic products. They are in turn enhanced
by a wealth of new services that improve product
performance and achieve new levels of efﬁciency.
USERS - PARTICIPATING AND ACTIVE
In world deﬁned by greater transparency and distribution of
power, people will continue to become active contributors to
the networks and communities in which they participate.
This will lead to new forms of co-creation where products
and services become more relevant and users are viewed as
a vital asset for any public or private organization.
CAPABILITIES - AVAILABLE AND ON-DEMAND
Starting a global business today requires little more than an
idea, a user base and a network of collaborators. Funding
can be crowd-sourced; factories can be rented and
specialized skills, work spaces and digital infrastructures
scale as needed. As a result, many more barriers to market
entry and global scale will be lowered.
DIGITALIZATION - EXPONENTIAL AND UBIQUITOUS
PLATFORMS - ECONOMICS AND SCALE
Technology platforms are transforming the idea of a product
or service by opening up entire business processes to
customers, developers, and partners to add value. This not
only reduces transaction costs but has the potential to
become an economic force with a logic of its own.
As digital assets rise in importance, and become a primary
source of business value, we will see business processes
become faster, more relevant and cost-efﬁcient. As processes
and products become digitalized, organizations are increasingly
adaptable to a changing environment, enabling increased
innovation, strengthened decision making and value creation.

Over the last few years a major shift in connectivity has
been gaining speed; we have moved away from a laptop
era and into a fully mobile era, where we connect to our
friends, family, and colleagues through multiple devices and
where business transactions are often made over the
cellular network. The resulting inﬂux of devices, users, and
applications trying to access the network can result in poor
indoor coverage and performance.
To support these changes in connectivity, Ericsson is
pushing performance further by adding capacity and
functionality with software-only upgrades. Ericsson IoT
Networks Software 16B delivers reduced device costs,
extended battery life and improved indoor coverage.
Cellular networks already cover 90 percent of the world’s
population, but a number of roadblocks to supporting
mass-market adoption of IoT have remained. Ericsson is
addressing these challenges with Ericsson IoT Network
Software 16B, a targeted new suite of software upgrades
and ecosystem advances that will accelerate the uptake of
IoT for the beneﬁt of both industry and consumers.
Ericsson’s new IoT Networks Software 16B delivers:
Reduced IoT device cost: The new software supports LTE
Category 0 with half-duplex operation in FDD, which effectively
limits functionality and capability to those speciﬁcally required for
IoT applications, such as large-scale sensor and smart meter
deployments. This reduced complexity cuts device cost by 60
percent compared to Category 4.
Extended battery life: 10-year battery life is one of the goals for
5G, and Ericsson is introducing two new software upgrades for
energy efﬁciency that achieve that goal on today’s IoT devices.
Device Power-saving Mode for LTE & GSM is a new device
power-saving capability that introduces a deep sleep state, while
Extended Discontinuous Reception (DRX) for GSM extends the
sleep cycles in inactive mode.
Improved indoor coverage: Extended coverage software for GSM
delivers a 20 dB improvement leading to a seven-fold extension in
the range of low-rate applications. This enables the usage of IoT
applications in remote locations and deep within buildings

The Industrialization Cycle
Telecom operator situation
Thanks to Ericsson’s global presence, we see that most telecom
operators are experiencing a relatively ﬂat scenario for ﬁxed
business. At the same time, mobile market growth in users and data
services is compensating for the declining SMS and voice services to
the extent that numbers are still in the black. The question is, for how
long? The action is clear: new income ﬂows and a reduction in OPEX
and CAPEX are needed. The mass market service evolution trend is
oriented toward an extensive use of broadband and mobility.
Enterprise segment evolution is focused on economic aspects,
changing communications, mobility, data centers and cloud/SDN
(with security as a top priority).
74% of all large businesses today are concerned about the integrity
and safety of their data in the cloud. Can you trust the data?
Can you be sure your business is secure?
Today, the answers to these questions are not reassuring: to reap
the beneﬁts of cloud, you are forced to trade speed for risk. But it
doesn’t have to be that way. What if there was a cloud that is not
only fast, ﬂexible and automate-able but also secure, safe and
governable: offering true data integrity, and respecting the data
sovereignty laws of each country it operates within?
Using our combined strengths in network, data, and compute
solutions, Ericsson is now building that cloud: a cloud with integrity
for business-critical applications. A cloud that is real-time ready,
and tailored to your needs. A cloud with known performance.
Ericsson has a long history in providing and managing hardware,
software, and services for the world’s most demanding
communications infrastructure. Now we’re bringing that experience,
knowledge, and power to the cloud.
POWERING THE DIGITAL INDUSTRIALIZATION OF MODERN BUSINESS
Source: Cloud Security Alliance, “Cloud Adoptions Practices & Priorities Survey report” (2015)
Today’s organizations operate in a business climate of breakneck
speed and continuous change. Ericsson Cloud System enables
businesses to transform their IT operations so that they can respond
to these changing market forces faster, and deliver customer value
more effectively, all while containing costs to be more competitive.
We call this digital industrialization. It’s a continuous cycle that
organizations can use to turn IT infrastructure from a cost into an
asset: standardizing on one set of technologies and economics,
across facilities, hardware, software, and operations; consolidating
data-centers; abstracting functionality; automating operations; and
governing it all to ensure security, integrity, and compliance.
You need to Standardize to deal with technologies, and drive a
one-facility hardware, software, operations and economic strategy for
continuous improvement. Then you Combine in order to consolidate
to drive the highest possible occupancy, utilization and density, with
CAPEX beneﬁts. Abstract and gain accessibility to complete
programmability of all functionality and capabilities. Modularize and
abstract at the right layers. Automate provides OPEX and agility for all
uses and desires. There are no interactions that require a human.
Finally you govern, so you gain security, performance, scalability,
quality, economics (cost and value), compliance, security.

DIGITAL TELCO TRANSFORMATION
Operators have provided the foundation for the Networked Society,
building networks that will soon connect 50 billion devices.
The next step? Achieving the agility you need to meet society’s new
demands and expectations, and doing it proﬁtably. Moving from a
telco to an ICT company, and from a service provider to an
experience provider. Three key components deﬁne what it means to
become a digital telco:
1. Change the way you interact with your customers.
2. Introduce advanced analytics to better understand your customer.
3. Fundamentally reinvent how you do business.
Ericsson can help you deﬁne a digital telco strategy based on your
strategic objectives, and then plan, build and deploy the capabilities
you need to compete in the digitalized marketplace.
