  • Our Story

We each worked over 25 years at Ericsson Communications. It's a great company where we rode the mobile telephony market growth from zero to market saturation. At the start, it was only car phones: analog radios. Then handhelds, roaming, network interop, and then digital modulation. Later it was data services (SMS Text!) and packet core networks (bye-bye circuit-switched). Then more data services like Picture Messaging (MMS) and mobile browsing (anyone remember WAP?). Later it was Cloud and software defined networks, Unified Communications and enterprise services. Of course LTE, and ultimately voice-over-LTE (the killer app!). Packet radio all the way to the handset. Every 10 years it seemed the telecom network was rebuilt. But everyone has a phone now, so growth slowed and consolidation happened. Now it's all about the things, getting "thing data" - and analytics to make sense of it. Soon we will move into edge computing and machine learning algortithms running on low-power sensors. The key is to deliver value.
