When most consumers think of Ericsson, the product they think of is the early cellular phone that Ericsson had on the market. But as we all know this device would be the last consumer cellular product that Ericsson would have available. So what has Ericsson done since then? In the eyes of most consumers, Ericsson has vanished never to be heard of again. This is as far from the truth as one could be. Ericsson is a thriving multinational company and although they don’t sell consumer products they thrive through B2B sales.
Their services include mobile, telecommunications, and many other services for businesses in the ICT industry. Their expertise and skill is shown by the more than 35,000 patents they have acquired over the years in mobile, telephone, and other communications infrastructure. Actually, 40% of all mobile traffic around the world is run through infrastructure provided by Ericsson. That’s over 1 billion people that rely on this company for their mobile needs!
This was definitely my favorite company visit. The innovation and thinking at this company is unmatched and was very stimulating. Also, they prepared a great presentation, showed us around the facility, and served an awesome lunch. I couldn’t have asked for anything more.
