Why Ericsson’s vision of 50 billion connected devices, once achieved, will change the definition of communication with Dragan Nerandzic, CTO of Ericsson Canada.

UNTETHER.tv was the official broadcast partner for the recent Mobile Innovation Week and this is one of the sessions we had while on location in Toronto.

It’s not often you get to spend 20 minutes with the CTO of Ericsson Canada so having Dragan Nerandzic sit down with me to talk about their vision of the mobile world was a treat.

We talk on a few key trends that will help enable mass adoption of mobile including the Ericsson vision of a world of 50 billion connect devices – from phones to trafic lights – and the changing way we communicate as a result of this mobile revolution.
