The ECW functions as an "office in a box" for enterprise and small/medium
business customers. It provides the ability to rapidly deploy voice and data
services in work locations that are temporary, hard to reach, need to have a
standardized connection or updated infrastructure.
With the Ericsson Converged Workspace, a small business or branch office has
immediate access to simultaneous voice calling services over the mobile
or VoIP, full multi-user Internet access, LAN, Wi-Fi and routing services and
full PBX functionality.
"This innovative blend of advanced features and interfaces enhances business
productivity and reduces costs," said Angel Ruiz, head of Ericsson North
American operations. "The ECW will be a significant technological leap forward
for branch offices or small businesses, which make up more than 90 percent of
all businesses in the United States."
The ECW can be used when businesses want to be entirely wireless or provide an
automatic 4G LTE backup solution when bundled with Ethernet-based internet
service. The ECW can also be configured to integrate traditional POTS lines
WAN access via DSL or cable, providing even more flexibility to operators and
their small business customers.
Adding 4G LTE expands the opportunity to address the needs of millions of
additional small businesses, branch offices or home workers with one network
without traditional limitations of the last mile connection.
The ECW is the result of collaboration begun as part of Verizon's Innovation
Program, of which Ericsson is a founding participant.
"The ECW is one of many innovative solutions Verizon and Ericsson have worked
together at the Innovation Center, and now that it is certified to work on our
4G LTE network, customers will have the opportunity to experience the
said Jim Wales, executive director, Innovation Program at Verizon Wireless.
Verizon Wireless and Ericsson are strategic partners for the 4G LTE ecosystem.
Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE network is currently available in 230 markets
two-thirds of the population in the United States.
