The development and deployment of a global distributed architecture connecting all clouds and all devices is a hotly debated topic in the industry, with some doubting it can be done.
According to Ericsson, it is not only possible but already starting to happen. Thomas Fredberg, Chief Architect HDS 8000, Senior Expert IT & Telco Datacenters at Ericsson believes his company in the vanguard.
At Mobile World Congress 2017, Ericsson and Intel showcased a Future Digital Infrastructure. Very recently the two companies in collaboration announced the opening of a joint hyperscale lab to accelerate SDI and Rack Scale design into the market.
Ericsson is transforming itself with the Hyperscale Data Centre System 8000 and are using the knowledge and experience gained during the transformation process to educate the market even as data-intensive services continue to place increasing stresses on traditional network architectures and in the knowledge that 5G will add exponentially to the workload.
