Considering a specific innovation objective, the project aims to evaluate and demonstrate how LTE technologies can enable Smart Grid applications, from monitoring to real time control. In particular, the project will produce a holistic view on the economic and technical tradeoffs for delivering Smart Gird services using public LTE infrastructure. Running under the “Smart Energy Systems Action” Line, the project brings together the following partners: Siemens, Ericsson and KTH.
Machine-to-Machine – Redefining Information Sharing and Enablers (M2MRISE)
M2MRISE is a new project, launched on January 23th 2014 as part of the EIT ICT Labs action line Networking Solutions for Future Media. Ericsson AB, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Aalto University, Nokia Research Center and Orange S.A. constitute the constellation of partners. The project will foster the development of a framework that enables services based on Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications and Internet of Things (IoT), within current and future cellular networks, by taking into account overall system, service and business model aspects.

As mobile IP-access is becoming the dominant technology for providing wireless services, the demand for more spectrum for this type of access is increasing rapidly. Since IP-access can be used for all types of services, instead of a plethora of dedicated, single-service systems, there is a significant potential to make spectrum use more efficient.

“MBT-MBT” is a Vinnova funded project on Mobile payments that was run the Autumn 2011 to spring 2012. The acronym MBT-MBT is in Swedish:
Mobila BeTalningar – Mer än Bara Transaktioner
(Mobile Payments – Not Only Transactions)
Machine-to-Machine communication (M2M) and Machine-to-Human communication (M2H) have been discussed and many solutions have been presented the last years. Many actors also make references to the statement/vision by Ericsson about 50 billion mobile devices.
On January 15 2013 researchers from Ericsson AB, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Aalto University and Telecom Italia launched a new project – 5GrEEn, an activity within the EIT ICT Labs action line Networking Solutions for Future Media. The project team will focus on designing Green 5G Mobile networks, a clean slate solution for environmentally friendly mobile networks of the future for a “connected society”.
eWIN Energy-efficient wireless networking: With the ICT industry consuming up to 10% of the world’s energy and doubling every five years, there is a mounting pressure to engineer “Green ICT systems” where energy consumption is seen as a first-class system property.
QUASAR is an FP7 targeted research project (STREP) that brings together a highly competent team of manufacturers, operators, regulators and universities with the aim at bridging this gap between the claims made in traditional cognitive radio research and practical implementation by assessing and quantifying the “real-world” benefits of secondary (opportunistic) access to primary (licensed) spectrum.
