A full transcript follows the video.
Eric Bleeker: Hey, Fools. I'm Eric Bleeker, and I'm here with Ericsson's CEO. We just witnessed a mobile panel, and one of the cool things we saw was the Dot.
Hans Vestberg: The Dot!
Bleeker: Tell me a little bit about the Dot.
Vestberg: The Dot is totally innovative. It's a way of actually doing indoor coverage equally good as outdoor coverage, and getting the same type of service indoor as outdoor. It's just using the Ethernet cables that you have inside your home, or in your residence, or in the hotel or whatever, and then you get your mobile coverage. That's what is doing the Dot.
Bleeker: Great, and this is working to solve the problem of the spectrum crunch, especially in urban areas. When are we going to see commercial applications of this?
Vestberg: I think this is of course doing densification on the networks, so first of all you can get better coverage, and you can get much better mobile data. This product is going to go in production in the second half of this year.
Bleeker: Great. Thank you very much.
