Ericsson connected the dots between the latest technology innovations and their dependence on infrastructure at the world's largest consumer electronics fair, CES 2017, in Las Vegas. Building on its theme of "Making 5G a Reality," Ericsson show attendees how networks, media and IT work in concert to improve our daily lives and work.

Ulf Ewaldsson, Ericsson's Chief Strategy and Technology Officer says: "Innovation is measured by how many people can share, use and experience it. Thanks to our long and rich history in connectivity, we are deeply familiar with the feedback loop between innovation and experience. CES is always a fantastic stage for innovation, so we are excited to be sharing the latest connectivity technology, 5G, with partners and our mutual customers."

Ericsson provided more than 30 demonstrations of new and emerging technologies and the improved experience people have when trying things out over the latest networks and platforms. CES attendees were able to enjoy interactive sports experiences using high-quality in-car video, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). Examples of smart cities, smart vehicles, more efficient and automated manufacturing, connected forests and transformational TV experiences were at hand.

Experts on site show to all CES attendees how key aspects of our lives, such as location, environment, security, employment and personalization can fundamentally change when supported by robust networks, innovative IT and media assets. Partners including Intel, Qualcomm, and Volvo Cars will demonstrate the innovative solutions they have co-created with Ericsson.

Ericsson demonstrated the latest 5G capabilities that operators will soon introduce, including higher bandwidth, lower latency, greater density, lower energy requirements, greatly increased security, network slicing and cellular for Massive IoT (Internet of Things) technologies. They used their broadcast technology and expertise to live-stream interviews from the "Ericsson Skybox" for those who prefer to stay at home, but still want to keep up with the latest conversations at the show.
