Sprint announced a global relationship with Ericsson to build a dedicated virtualized core network for its IoT network, in addition to a new IoT operating system.

The distributed and virtualized core network is designed to create an optimal flow of device data, enabling immediate, actionable intelligence at the network edge for end users and enterprises. It reduces distance between the device generating the data and the IoT application processing it, says Sprint. The nodes are distributed right to the enterprise premise, if necessary, to support specific security, privacy and latency requirements.

The new IoT operating system designed for connectivity management and device management, enables simplified inbound and outbound activity for device connectivity.

Configuration and updates of firmware and software are managed for each device. All data is managed securely with world-class security on the chip level. The IoT OS provides full subscription lifecycle management and monitoring of billing and usage data.

Ivo Rook, SVP of IoT, Sprint
We are combining our IoT strategy with Ericsson’s expertise to build a platform primed for the most demanding applications like artificial intelligence, edge computing, robotics, autonomous vehicles and more with ultra-low-latency, the highest availability and an unmatched level of security at the chip level.

Asa Tamsons, SVP and Head of Business Area Technology & Emerging Business, Ericsson
Sprint will be one of the first to market with a distributed core network and operating system built especially for IoT and powered by Ericsson’s IoT Accelerator platform.
