Telecommunications company Ericsson has launched a new Digital Services Service Delivery (DSSD) hub in Belgrade. The company says it will accelerate 5G momentum in Serbia.
The hub will focus on network virtualisation and cloud-native 5G networks, benefitting the global 5G ecosystem and leveraging on the existing Ericsson collaboration with Serbian mobile operators, Ericsson claimed.
Celebrating the 25th anniversary of Ericsson’s involvement in Serbia
The announcement also marks the 25th anniversary of Ericsson in Serbia and was made during an open discussion meeting about “5G for growth and innovation in Serbia”. The meeting was organised by H.E. Mr. Jan Lundin, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Sweden to the Republic of Serbia.
Antonio Passarella, Country Manager of Ericsson Serbia, said: “5G is an unmatched platform for open innovation and is expected to boost Serbia’s economy and global competitiveness. It can help attract more long-term investment in the country and propel our country’s growing digital economy into the future. Our new DSSD hub comes at the right time as it will play a key role in accelerating the adoption of 5G in Serbia and elsewhere. It is yet another proof of our long-term commitment and continuous investment done to support Serbia’s young talents and spread digital skills.”
Ericsson’s DSSD hub in Serbia has already recruited more than 20 local talents and continues its recruitment addressing University students in various disciplines and positions. The establishment of the hub in Serbia is leveraging on the strategic partnerships Ericsson has established for more than a decade with key Universities across the country.
The move towards 5G means mobile networks will have to support a much broader range of services and amount of data larger than ever before, with increased levels of intelligence, virtualisation, and automation.
Ericsson Digital Services Service Delivery hub will aim to work at the core of this network evolution to 5G, delivering intelligent solutions that impact people, businesses, and society on a local and global scale, allowing service providers to open up new revenue streams, step into enterprise business ventures, and deliver exceptional end-user experiences.
