Ericsson has opened its first global ICT centre as it looks to bring together its various test labs and data centres around the world.

The new centre, in Linköping, Sweden, will house Ericsson's complete portfolio and will use cloud technology to help its 25,000 plus R&D engineers to collaborate better.

The opening follows Ericsson's September 2013 announcement that it plans to open three global ICT Centres, with another planned for Sweden and the remaining one to be build in Quebec, Canada.

Graham Osborne, Vice President of the Global ICT Centre Program at Ericsson, said: "The Global ICT Centres are our own industrial commitment to the cloud. With our cloud-based technology, the centres will enable our cross-functional teams to collaborate beyond borders. It will allow us to get quality products and services to our customers faster than ever before. For us this is a milestone."

Last week, the Sweden-based vendor boosted the security characteristics of its cloud portfolio after signing a deal with technology company Guardtime.

In its most recent financial report, Ericsson saw profits jump for the second consecutive quarter as sales fell one percent to €5.9 billion between April and June.
