In parallel with the initial roll out of 5G networks around the world, the interest in hardware and software disaggregation and virtualization of Radio Access Networks (RAN) and the use of open, standardized, RAN interfaces is growing. Ericsson have closely followed this technology evolution over the past years and have now launched Cloud RAN.

  • Be a key member of the overall Cloud RAN technical lead team where you will together with the rest of the team take on a leading role for Cloud RAN O&M, ensuring we as a company succeed in delivering a cloud native RAN offering to our customers, as well as participating in O&M standardization activities.
  • Lead and or participating in technical system studies, producing technical decision material, cost estimates, small business cases and make buy analysis
  • Being a part of the Strategic O&M System Development team, you work closely with product line Cloud RAN and the development units responsible for Cloud RAN solutions but also with other Ericsson development units, e.g. DNEW NSV, BNEW Standards & Technology, and PDU OSS.
  • You will have the opportunity to interact with selected key customers, customer units and giving customer presentations.
  • Be the split architecture, the Cloud Native infrastructure and the journey towards micro services will put new requirements on the systemization, on new and changed functionality, on observability, on trace and not least the way of working.
