Ericsson is another of the big guys, so big we almost decided not to track them. We try to focus on the disruptive tech firms, not the ones everyone already knows about, and you no doubt already know about Ericsson. But we decided to track them closely since we see disruption continuing in this space and Ericsson has a track record of innovation here. We will report on key innovations we see coming from them. And we recommend you consider their latest capabilities in any market research into communications you are doing.
