This IDC Market Note provides IDC's key takeaways spanning Ericsson's Networks, Digital Services, and Emerging Business units.
"Ericsson is firmly entrenched as a leading technology enabler in the early 5G era, largely driven by its embedded role with leading mobile network operators. While Ericsson's RAN portfolio remains a key differentiator in the market, ongoing work in adjacent product categories, including OSS/BSS, edge compute, cellular IoT, automation, and services, will only serve to enhance Ericsson's wallet share in key customer accounts," says Patrick Filkins, senior research analyst, IoT and Mobile Network Infrastructure.
