Creating the future world

Add your career to the resources of Ericsson and amazing things can happen. We are a world leader in the rapidly changing environment of communications technology – by providing hardware, software, and services to enable the full value of connectivity.


Technical area

Our team is part of the "Middleware IP and OS" (MIPOS) development center and responsible for the vDicos and Data Management Solutions of the Component Based Architecture (CBA).

The solutions built on the following common components:

  • vDicos Execution Environment provides a C/C++ application environment, backward compatible with the Ericsson Telecom Server Platform (TSP). The aim of providing the TSP API and functions – directly or indirectly through other components - is to execute the numerous existing, strategically very important TSP-based applications (see e.g. IMS & VoLTE) in a CBA cluster with minimal porting effort.
  • The DBS implements an in-memory, noSQL but object-oriented, cluster-wide distributed database management system.
  • The Database Access Service (DAS) provides database technology agnostic interface towards the applications for communicating with the data tier.

Our I&V team is responsible for the verification of the components against functional and non-functional requirements (e.g. characteristics, robustness, stability, security, overload). This is done by running automated testcases. Development of the (JCAT-based) test automation framework and the testcases in Java, and the evaluation of the test results are belonging to the team’s responsibilities too.

Our component verification often requires large capacity, scalable cluster-based test infrastructure on virtualized HW.

  • Linux configuration and troubleshooting

  • IP network configuration and troubleshooting
  • IP-based protocols: static, dynamic routing
  • virtualization technologies and cloud (VMware - ESX, KVM, VirtualBox, OpenStack)
