Ensure use of openstack for Telcos
I am currently heading up Architecture within the Ericsson group (VP Architecture reporting to CTO) being responsible for the Network and Implementation architecture for all our products. I was also for a year also heading up Ericsson Cloud Program, i.e. defining and setting the strategy around cloud for the company, including our strategic choice to base our cloud platform product upon OpenStack. Right now my focus is to ensure that we can provide a private-cloud environment for Telco Operators, based on Openstack, that can retain and improve the carrier-grade SLA’s when our applications goes from a box-based to a cloud deployment model.
I am also responsible for Ericsson OpenSource strategy and have been instrumental in drving the foundation of Ericsson initiated opensource projects such as Erlang and OpenSAF where Ericsson has been the founder and major contributor of code.
I have spent my entire career within Ericsson entirely within R&D and management and have been responsible for Ericsson server and platform development (Processor, Operating System, Middleware etc) but is now part of the CTO office driving technology strategy across the company.
