Ericsson to Expand Cisco Partnership in 2017

Ericsson is expanding its partnership with Cisco in 2017 by serving new corporate clients and the public sector, Reuters reported, citing the company’s North America chief Rima Qureshi.

Qureshi said the companies are on track to achieve an extra $1 billion each in revenues by 2018 through a partnership they entered late 2015.

“We are investigating what we can do together within Industry & Society, IoT (Internet of Things), smart cities and we’re going to target specific public sector segments, specifically for example transportation, utilities … And then of course we’re looking at other segments such as security,” Qureshi said.
